There is so much JOY in doing the simple everyday tasks. Yesterday I made this soup my family has enjoyed since they were little. It was and still is one of my favorite things to serve on Halloween Night.I call it Cabbage beef soup. You start with a small head of washed cabbage cored and rough chopped.Then dice one large green pepper, and one large onion. Put all of this in a nonstick pan with 2lbs. of ground chuck. Saute all untill tender. Meanwhile in a slow cooker put in two cans of light kidney beans add parsley and garlic to the pot as much as your taste call for. Then drain any grease off the cabbage and meat mixture and add to the slow cooker. Thenadd 2 large cans of crushed tomatoes to this, Cook on low for about 6 hours. If this is too thick add a little water to thin it. All of my littlt trick or treaters really like it. I serve peanut butter and or cheese and crackers and Fritos with it. For dessert I make brownies.I fid so much joy and happiness in my family's enjoyment of the food I prepare for them.
