Making my way thru my Friday Friend Cookbook, one recipe at a time!
Friday Friend cookbook: I have about 50 of my closest friends and family on an e-mail forum which I called the Friday Friends. At first, most of them didn't know each other, (they knew me) but over the past 15 years, we've answered and shared silly--and serious---questions, exchanged Secret Santa Christmas gifts, had a dieting contest in which we paid a $1 a week and that money went to a scholarship fund for a Friday Friends son's memorial scholarship, and we went on a great vacation for my 52 birthday.
AND, we contributed recipes for a cookbook.
Which brings me to this... recipe #25
The Handyman and I love a good bowl of soup! And this one is souper easy. And souper good!
Shelly turned in a simple Crock-pot recipe because she says she likes easy things.
I love to use my crockpot and come home to a house filled with great aromas.
That's just what you do with this soup.
Fix it in the morning, leave for the day (or stay home and read a book), eat in the evening.

1 lb. hamburger, browned with 1 cup chopped onion (drain off fat)
2 cloves minced garlic
1 14oz can chopped tomatoes
1 29oz can pinto beans
1 15oz can tomato sauce
1 cup picante sauce/salsa
1/2 t. chili powder
1 17oz can of corn, drained
Cook on low all day in crockpot. Serve with cheese, sour cream, and/or chips. Can mix and match beans---whatever kind you like.
And now, Friday Friend Shelly Noble!
Shelly says that she is not a 'cook', but she is and she's turned in many recipes for the Friday Friend Cookbook.
So stay tuned for many pictures of her--like this one of Shelly and her husband Lorin.
All dressed up.
They were the rednecks as was their dog, Sierra.
It was hysterical.
We had a celebration at Wallowa Lake a few years ago.
A Friday Friend celebration.
And one night we had a traveling cocktail party.
Their cabin was the Redneck cabin.
(there was Pirate cabin, beer cabin, wallow lake wallbanger cabin, Mexican cabin and the elf cabin. I should really blog about this traveling cocktail party sometime)
(just because the Friday Friends did such a good 'theme' job and had such a good time)
They did a good job!
(along with April and Doug---together, they were the Rednecks!)
They served us pork rinds and cheeseballs.
No disrespect to rednecks was intended in the writing of this post. LOL (I can't help it---I have to write that)
Woo hoo Rednecks!
Lorin and Shelly.

I am going to link up to
what is Souper Sundays?
Well...taken straight from the horses--I mean blogger's---mouth:
What is "Souper Sundays"?:Souper Sundays is a weekly blog event that started because of my love of soup and a desire to work through the many soup and soup-like recipes in my cookbooks and magazines, I set a goal to make a soup or "soupish" dish each week and post it each Sunday and invited others to do the same. I do a round up of all the participants each week on Sunday afternoon (Hawaii time!) with a description of their entry and link back to each participant's blog and their post
