Happy (?) Ides of March! Yesterday was pi day, and now a reminder of the ultimate backstabber...

Today (well, last night) I decided to make cheeseburger soup. I've had this one on my "recipes to make" list for quite some time, so I decided to make room in my freezer and go ahead and make this.

  • Ground beef (browned in the rice cooker)
  • 2 white potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 onion
  • 2 ribs celery
  • 2 carrots
  • 1/2 tsp. basil
  • 1/2 tsp. parsley
  • ~12 oz chicken broth
  • ~1 spoonful butter or ghee
  • Shredded cheese (it's supposed to be cheddar or American, but I went with usual)
  • Crumbled GF bread

I stuck all but the last two ingredients in Gretel overnight (~6 hours), then added the cheese and bread this morning.

Verdict: yummy! I have enough ground beef to feed me for at least two days, and this stuff is FILLING. I added a bit too much chicken broth, so it's waterier than I'd like, but that's okay. So now my room smells like meat and my stomach is full!

Cuban proverb of the day: "Barriga llena, corazon contento." ("Full stomach, happy heart"--so true)

Short post today, but I really wanted to put up something on the Ides of March, since I missed pi day.

  1. You missed Pi Day? How could you? Although, can you eat pie? Not sure with the crust and all.... Your dorm sounds awfully crowded with all those appliances, but I bet you eat better than other BAC students.
