Welcome to my regular feature Menu Monday.
The day I share my plans for meals served on the Rustic Dinner Plate.
Today as part of On The Road with Authors Danny and Wanda Pelfry ...
I have a special treat a yummy Soup and Cornbread Recipe just for my readers because this Soup is served at a fun Eatery in Adairsville, Georgia.
Tomorrow I will share a bit about Adairsville but for today here's the recipe and my weeks menu.
Carol’s vegetable soup & Southern Cornbread
leftover, diced beef roast
Beef Broth (either from the Roast or Canned)
2 lb. Idaho Potatoes – peeled and diced
1 large, Sweet Onion – peeled and diced
any fresh Vegetables in season, or large bag of frozen Soup mix or mixed Vegetables
Small can of Tomato Sauce
Worchestershire Sauce 3 tbsp
Salt and Pepper to tasten
Instant Mashed Potatoes 1/2 cup
Cover bottom of dutch oven with cooking spray or olive oil. lightly brown Onions. Add 3 cups water and Broth from Roast or can. If you do not have Broth, add 1 more cup of water and Beef cube.
Add Potatoes and 1 tbs. salt. simmer until soft.
This is a good time to use any leftover cooked Vegetables in refrigerator, as long as they are not too leftover. Cook until soft. We southerners do not like undercooked Vegetables!
Add a can of Tomato Sauce and 3 tbs. Worchestershire sauce.
Add pepper and more salt if needed.
2 cups Yellow Cornmeal Mix
1 tbs. Vegetable Oil
1 cup water
preheat oven to 350 degree
