Dale NC requested potato soup recipes in the 9/25 newsletter. The first recipe is a very old recipe, as I remember my mom making it when we were very young. The second recipe was in a 2010 newsletter and is delicious. It is also quick and easy to make. Thanks to Myron for sharing it! Robbie IN

Crockpot Potato Soup Recipe

5 C. vegetable stock or chicken stock
1/3 C. butter
1/2 Tbs. parsley flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
6 potatoes, peeled & cubed
2 onions, chopped
1/3 cup finely diced celery - optional
1/3 cup finely diced carrots - optional
1 13-ounce can evaporated milk

Put all ingredients except evaporated milk into crock-pot. Cook on high 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. Add milk last 2 hours. The reserved water from cooking potatoes for mashing works great as the vegetable stock.

When I was growing up I remember we ate a lot of city chicken. Now I have no clue what it was. Does anyone know what City Chicken is and how it is made?

When I moved to Montana 10 years ago that was the very first thing I was told by a neighbor. They introduced themselves then told me always carry blankets and rain gear in the car. Because up here year round in can rain or snow in about 15 minutes time. They are correct. I saw unexpected brief snow storm on July 4th my 2nd year here. It did not last thank heavens. Take care and thank you.

How do you cook liver and onions? I am new to cooking and want to surprise my husband. What kind of liver to you buy, how much should I buy, and how do you fix it. Thank you for this newsletter. I would love to hear blunders others have made in cooking. I seem to have a lot of them myself.

Cream of Tomato Soup:

My sister keeps telling me I should try Edamame. I don't even know what it is or where you find it in the grocery. Does anyone have some good TNT recipes that uses it.
Mary G in Idaho

Nancy I was wanting some TNT soup recipes, to use for a church soup and salad supper. Maybe something other than the usual chili and vegetable soups. I will be using a crock pot.

I am new to the newsletter. I was standing in line at the grocery a couple of days ago. One of the ladies in the line told me about the best recipe site on the internet. I wrote down and address and was very impressed with your site. I wanted to share a recipe I tried today. It was really good. I don't know if it has been posted before or not. I used the mild salsa with my chicken.

Salsa Chicken Recipe

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1, 16 oz., jar chunky style salsa, either mild, medium or hot
2 cups shredded cheese, your choice of Mexican, sharp Cheddar cheese or any other kind

Put the chicken in slow cooker. Pour salsa over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 8 hours or until chicken is tender but not dry. Top individual servings with shredded cheese. Can serve over cooked rice or in a whole wheat or cheddar cheese wrap. Sometimes I shred the chicken adding peppers onions, tomatoes in a whole wheat wrap putting these in a baking pan putting cheese and the salsa from the crock pot over the wrap and putting in the oven to melt the cheese.

Love your site. It always has great ideas. I have a big bowl of pinto beans cooked. They are thick. We are tired of eating beans and cornbread. Does anyone have any ideas to use these leftovers up. We like all kinds of foods. Thanks in advance.

Dennis at the Prepared Panty has a primer on the different types of flour. It has a lot of information about bleached and unbleached flour.
Click Here for Primer on Different Types of Flour.

Thank you - Robbie IN - very interesting about the differences in bleached vs. unbleached flour. I wonder what happens to the chemicals used to bleach the flour? Surely every last speck of them cannot be removed before making the flour food grade again. We have always used unbleached or whole. I'm not knocking anyone who uses bleached - it's just that a lot of health websites and my own natuaralpath say to stay away from any white foods such as flour or sugar as they may contribute to
health issues.
