Wednesday morning crock pot creation
The calendar that I made up for the week of food says today is soup & sandwiches. Dh gets back from TX around 8:30 or so, so I wanted something that I could have for him when he gets home. Ds will be bummed that it's not tomato soup! Added a 1/2 stick of butter to crockpot, turned on high to try & melt some. Sliced up & quartered 5 smaller onions and tossed in with the butter. Opened to packages of granulated beef broth or whatever it's called, sprinkled over the top of onions. Shook some worchestershire sauce over top, and put on lid for 2 hours. Just now poured in 4 cups of hot water. Turned it down to low for 8 hours. Shall see how the onion soup turns out. Being that I have croutons, mozz cheeses, wanted to make french onion soup but my usual recipe takes 4 to 6 hours, and you have to be available throughout ... so not a work day recipe. Will serve with ham and/or turkey and/or veggie subs on mini hoagie rolls. Not sure what walmart calls them, but they come from the bakery at 10 for $2.29 instead of the usual 4 for $2.99 price. I like them and so does the rest of the house.
