Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup
I thought this soup was great - not too hard to make either. I mistakenly dropped all 5 Tbls butter into the saucepan to sautee my onion (instead of leek) and carrots (frozen with the ice washed off) and didn't see how that harmed anything. We're not as big a fan of dill, so I just used a bit less. The Half and Half and flour mixture thickened up the soup just fine. I'm looking forward to more of this tonight!

Simple Beef Stroganoff
So I searched for a recipe that had ingredients I already had in the house and I decided on this one. After scanning through the most helpful reviews, I browned the beef while rehydrating some minced onions. Drained, then added a few sprinkles of Worchestershire sauce, Cream of Mushroom with Garlic Soup, the onions, some garlic powder, some orgegano, salt, pepper and some frozen peas and let that simmer while the egg noodles cooked. I added a 'lil bit of milk too, because it wasn't saucy enough. Added the noodles and combined and then added in some sour cream with chives ('cuz that was in the fridge). It had some nice flavor and really, the only thing I'd change would be to add fresh mushrooms next time.

Vegan Split Pea Soup I
Well, I followed the crockpot instructions and 2.5 hours on high just don't cut it. It was more like 5.5 hours on high. Of course, ditzy me didn't soak the peas first, but the potatoes and carrots were not soft enough at 2.5 hours either. I made this for a vegetarian friend who was sick, so I used 3 14oz cans of vegetable broth, a can of cream of celery soup ('cuz I had it and didn't have celery) and then one 14oz can of water - I did not use any barley. Chopped up some baby carrots and 2 long potatoes (next time I'll just use one), a whole onion, a bag of dried split peas, and the rest of the seasonings. Once it was done, I thickened with instant mashed potatoes and added more pepper and added my salt then. I think it turned out quite well and my vegetarian friend was veeerrrry happy.
