I'm a little sad that I'm really not in the position to be able to bring any food. Nor do I have to. I'm not sure what I could even prepare that would survive a 5-hour car trek and still be edible... other than something terrible like cookies. So, in light of being told to "bring my appetite" up to Long Island... that's what I plan to do. That's where we (Neal, Jim, and I) will headed late tomorrow night. I've heard that it's probably the worst traffic it has been in a while because of construction, so it may be a long ride. At least we'll be in good company.
After that, we'll be headed to West Virginia to visit Jim's (and mine, I guess) family for a second Thanksgiving. Did I mention that we're having a small Thanksgiving feast tomorrow night with my dad? Yeah... so, here we come 3 Thanksgivings... haha.
Anyway, Neal came over for the usual Glee watching bonanza and I made something awesome:
|Spicy Cheeseburger Soup|
I wasn't too sure about it as it was cooking, but it all congealed together nicely to make a yummy pot of soup. Be warned though, the recipe says that it should only take about 15 minutes of prep. That's if you are a master chef who chops on a daily basis! It had a lot of veggies to be chopped and took me quite some time... but I'd say it was completely ready to eat about an hour from when I started prepping it (so, not terrible).
I think this is my favorite soup that I've made thus far into my cooking journey.
I also have to send a shout out to my buddy, Lavearn... I was raving to her about an amazing recipe for Slow Cooker Spinach Lasagna a while ago and said she should check out my blog. Well, I definitely forgot to add the recipe. ;-) Sorry Lavearn! Here's a picture of it in my crockpot looking all scrumptious:
Happy Thanksgiving! :-)
