Family favorites for cold weather

Beans & Corn bread - soak your selection of beans overnight, drain, add fresh water and a chunk of hambone - with meat for my meat eating dh, and cook all day - with a side of corn bread, we think we're royalty!

Chili - leftover beans, add 2 cans of tomatos, 1/2 bag of cooked kidney beans and a pound or more of browned ground beef/venison, one chopped onion, and chili seasoning to taste - serve with homemade bread!

Easy crockpot spicy cabbage beef soup - MMmmmm, straight from Rival's cookbook

1 lb ground beef
1 lg onion, chopped
5 cups chopped cabbage (bite size pieces)
2 16 oz cans red kidney beans
3 8 ounce cans tomato sauce
2 cups water
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3/4 cup picante sauce
4 beef boullion cubes
1 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Brown ground beef and onion over medium heat in a skillet. Drain. Pour into crock pot. Stir in cabbage, beasn, tomato sauce, water, pepper, picante sauce, beef boullion, and seasonings. Cove and cook on Low 6-8 hours, or HIgh 3-4 hours - serve when cabbage is tender. Serves 10 - 12.

Dh also loves it when I fix a turkey dinner with all the fixins in this COLD weather - warms the whole house!

Turkish Bluff with Wings.

When I was alittle girl, and it was cold...and it was always cold up in Northern Minn, we had something we liked extra special.

We called it Turkish Bluff.....I have no clue where that name came from.

My Family was made up of Scandinavians, English, and Italians, and they all ate differently, but they shared ideas. Thus we had "preserved in a jar" spagetti sauce all the time, in the cellar.

So, Turkish Bluff.
Without amounts...ya gotta play this by ear..

Brown a couple of huge handfulls of lean ground beef. Drain.

Toss in a whole onion, chopped finely.

(weather permitting)..a bell pepper chopped finely.

Add, one large size canning jar of homemade spagetti sauce (I use Ragu......now..lol...the Zesty Cheese blend).

One teaspoon (about) of sugar.

Shake some Garlic Powder in...for good measure... simmer 10 or 15 minutes.

Prepare according to directions, large flat egg noodles, just enuff so you dont have too much...hehehe..good guessin here.

Now the hard part....put the flat noods in the sauce mix...and let sit in crock pot or in pot...to be reheated at suppertime. The longer it sets and mingles ---well the settin is the better....

Then, take chicken wings, and wash and put in glass casserole dish, season, and then add lots of garlic powder..drizzle some of that spagetti sauce (that you saved) over the top, bake in over for 45-60 min, at 350.

If you like presentation, put the Turkish Bluff in a pretty, flat casserole serving type dish, and circle on top, with the drained wings........

Garlic Bread, is a great side.

Honest to God, this tastes like you have been bustin yer hiney all day in the kitchen...and, really its the kind of dinner, my Mom would fix on wash day. You know those days when washing clothes happened on Monday, and with the wringer washer and the outdoor clothes lines....in this kind of cold weather....This was a great hot meal, to have with Grandpas frozen long johns leaning up against the stair rails.

Wow!! These are some great recipes!

This recipe was in our Sunday paper a couple of weeks ago, in with all the coupons. I tried it last week, and it is YUMMY!!

Sideline Sausage Soup

16oz. Eckrich smoked sausage
halved lengthwise, and sliced thin
1 can (15oz.) each Black,
Great Northern, and Red Kidney beans, all drained
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) Hunt's Recipe Ready diced tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon each dried oregano,
cumin, and salt

Combine all ingredients in large saucepan.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.

The only thing I did different, is I added a can of whole kernel corn, drained.

It's very easy! And very good! Especially on a cold day!
