That’s what my mom would always say, “there’s a lesson here some place.” I say my lesson is to be happy with what I have or I should say had. I just got a new phone, I hate it. I want my old one back! Why didn’t I just keep what I was familiar with IDK. Why do we always want the newest, the biggest the best?
I was reading about Ruth and Naomi, what a pair they were. A daughter in law who would not leave her ML and ML who helped Ruth find a husband. It seems to me Ruth was a woman who knew what she had a was not interested in bigger, better or new.
I love a good romantic story and the Bible is full of them. Really the Bible has wonderful stories, exciting stories, romantic stories, dramatic stories, sad and scary stories. What a book.
How can I be excited about soup this time of year? I just do really love soup and this is an especially great dish. Again this is from the cookbook, The 30-day Diabetes Miracle Cookbook.
THREE SISTERS STEW
Makes 8 1/2 Cups
1 1/2 Tbs. Smart Balance 1 Cup whole kernel corn
1 1/2 Cups Morningstar Crumbles 2 Cups 3/4 inch cubed peeled butternut squash
3/4 chopped green bell pepper 2 Tb. McKay’s Beef broth
1 Cup chopped onion 3/4 tsp. dried basil
2 cloves minced garlic 1/16 tsp. cayenne pepper
3 cups water 1/2 tsp. salt-I omitted
1 can pinto beans, drained 1 can diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans, drained 2 Tb. water
1 Tb. cornstarch
I added 2 envelopes of Sazon Seasoning–find this in a Mexican store but it’s not in the recipe.
Melt the margarine in a large pot over medium heat. Add the crumbles, pepper, onion, garlic and saute until vegetables are tender, 4-5 minutes. Add all the remaining ingredients, except the 2 Tb. water and cornstarch. Cover and simmer until the vegetables are almost tender, about 20 minutes. Whisk the cornstarch and water together, and stir into the stew. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, and serve.
I have to admit I doubled almost all the ingredients except the corn, kidney beans and tomatoes. I used GW Broth 6 envelopes because I didn’t have any McKay’s Beef Style Broth.
