Sweet Sixteen

It really disturbs me that a lot of my food looks alike, maybe it's because I've cooked a few things in the crockpot.  Crockpot food always seems to look the same - I guess so when the majority of my crockpot meals look like some form of chili. 

Well tonight is not an exception - did I make chili:? No, I made soup, but it might as well be chili.  Oh well, my mission for next week's menu will be to cook no chili-looking food.

I made 16 bean soup tonight.  There were mixed feelings about this one. Some gobbled it up faster than you can say "cannelini bean" and some not so much.  Apparently, I must have a fear of vampires because I went a little crazy with the garlic.

Tonight's menu at Table 4 Five:

  • Crockpot 16 Bean Soup
  • Salad
  • Wine and Water

Crockpot 16 Bean Soup:

  • Package of 16 Bean Soup Mix
  • Pack of Onion Soup Mix
  • 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • Minced Garlic
  • Cajun Seasoning
Put all the ingredients in the crockpot and cook on low all day.  It is actually a good winter time meal -very warm and filling., and most importantly very easy!

Until Next Time

  1. I can't say "cannelini bean" very fast. . .wonder what that means?
    Thank you for planning the majority of next weeks meals for us. My family can't thank you enough!
    *do your kids eat salad? In my house I am the only one. So if I buy the stuff, it usually goes bad before I can finish it. Boo.
