Shopping Around the World
This month it is scheduled for December 30th – after the holiday so we can all make plans. Since it is the Christmas holidays, this month we will again focus on appetizers, side dishes, salads, soups, main entrees or desserts.
This month we wanted to highlight a wonderful soup that mom/dad like to eat during the winter time. This soup is also a great jump start for their diet… but that’s another story. Here is what you will need:
♦ Steak Picanha – already sliced into bite sized strips – one package around $5.00 (note any kind of steak will work for this recipe. In fact, you can even switch the steak for chicken cut into bite sized strips.)
♦ One head of cabbage – $1.48 head
♦ One can of white/yellow corn – $0.48 can
♦ One can of diced tomatoes with green chilis – $0.48 can
♦ One package of beef broth or chicken brother – $1.50
♦ Two cups of water, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes
Cut up the entire head of cabbage and throw in the bottom of the crock pot. Add your cans of corn, chilis, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste. Add in your stock and water. Add your meat to the top and put the lid on your crock pot.
Turn on your crock pot to low and let that crock pot do the work for you all day. When you get ready to eat, you will be amazed at the smell and taste. It’s hardy and wonderful. If you want it a little thicker, you can add a cut up potato with your ingredients.
Mom/dad often use this to jump start their diet. Why? Well the cabbage is an amazing item…. snorts with piggy laughter. This soup costs about $9.00 to prepare but lasts for a couple of days. It’s a little spicy but not so hot that you can’t enjoy it.

Sounds delish…….anything with cabbage is somewhat dangerous but does the trick (haha). Mom calls cabbage “the roto rooter of the veggie world”…………Sorry we didn’t pawticipate in shopping this month…..we are SO far behind with everything!!!!

My mom/dad highly believe in this soup – especially at the start and in the middle of any great diet. That cabbage does wonders… even to me. Just ask me about food ghosts – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

Looks good, almost like kapusta which is cabbage, sauerkraut, split yellow peas and barley.

Did you know today is National Bacon Day? No bacon was on our menu, but we did buy a package of bacon at the supermarket. 🙂

Oh my! Thank goodness mom explained to me at an early stage that I’m not that kind of bacon… although daddy does try to measure my butt sometimes. I wonder why? Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon
