Later I decided I wanted a creamy vegetable soup for dinner, since it was cool and I had the heater on! I got out all the dehydrated veggies from the cupboard...sweet potato pieces, leeks, chives, bell peppers, mushrooms, potatoes, carrots,  

... green beans, broccoli, tomato dices, and peas. Then thought some veggie macaroni would be good too....

I chopped celery and hydrated the veggies... then into the Crock*Pot went the celery and a couple scoops of the crushed garlic...


Next went in the veggies, a couple cans of cream of chicken soup, a box of chicken stock, and a can of the ricotta cheese...


I turned on the Crock*Pot and let all heat well on high for a couple hours. OMGOSH, this was sooooooooooooooooo good! AWESOME! Some leftovers will be frozen, and I think I'll have a bowl for breakfast!


All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.
