Making vegetable soup is one. There is something cozy about gathering the ingredients and spending a bit of time in the kitchen.
Left over roast beef makes a great foundation with its rich broth for this hearty dish. Sliced carrots and celery - shredded cabbage - diced onion - green beans and corn with several cups of tomato juice is all that is needed. If one likes - a potato or two can be added. Then everything goes into the slow cooker which is set on low. Some salt and pepper to taste - a bit of sugar, oregano and basil will give it a good flavor. The last ingredient is a bay leaf on top. (Important to remove the leaf before serving). It is best to let the soup cook for several hours or overnight.
What are some fall things you enjoy doing? Hope you will share. Have a blessed day!
