Comfort Food

Cool weather makes me want soup.  I could eat it every meal.  Since I am married to a meat and potato man that just doesn't happen.  Last weekend I made myself a pot of cabbage soup to have for lunch (many lunches/ha) 
If I have shared this recipe before, forgive me....here it is again.  Still delicious!

1 1/2 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained
1 head cabbage, chopped
1 large can V-8 juice (I like the spicy one)
1 large can stewed tomatoes
2 cans ro-tel
2 cans red beans (drained and rinsed)
2 pkg dry Italian salad dressing mix (zesty flavor)

Mix all together; simmer at least one hour.

I have had this recipe for years and don't remember where I got it. Thanks to whomever!!!!

For dessert, breakfast, snack, etc.
Comfort food in the shape of a muffin!!

I do know where I got this yummy Pumpkin Muffin recipe.......straight from Tootie's Place.  She posted it a few days ago and I have made them twice since seeing them.  I just took the second round of them from the oven...they smell so good.  This time I read the recipe a little more closely and put the amount of pumpkin called for, 1 cup, not 1 can! lol!  You know they were still delicious, even with more pumpkin than recipe stated.  Pop over to Tootie's and try her great recipe. 

Uh oh, I have a technical problem!  I updated to IE-9 yesterday and there isn't a copy choice when I go to her address tab???  Suggestions? Help? 

Go via my sidebar....Sorry Tootie.

I hate updates!!!!!!

Nanny, your soup and muffins look sooo good for this cooler weather snap!!

I didn't even know IE9 was out... so, I don't have a clue how to get the copy thing to work. =/ WHY do they always change everything? Seem like they could update without making them work differently. I know you will figure it out. blessings ~ tanna

That soup looks wonderful, but I've never heard of ro-tel. I like the idea of adding V-8 juice to the soup. And dry Italian salad dressing must really add a bit of umph to the taste. Wonderful!
