Soup Sundays

I am so ready for winter. For us Winter has to be a CHEAP winter but a FUN one. And now that my wife and I are cooking together as a team, just like everything else we do together, this has to be the most fun. And what an education I am getting.

Soup Sunday is a crockpot meal that serves lunch and dinner for us - cutting our day food budget in half.

10 cups water (however my wife uses homemade stock for 5 of those cups)
1 lb of mix beans (we prefer the mix over just one type of bean)
1 onion
1-2 cups of mix veggies (carrots, celery, tomatoes, potatoes - we do not eat corn so NO corn)
maybe some meat if we were able to get it at $2.00 a lb or less.
and HERBS... Oh yes many herbs.

Let it cook while we are at Church and then its ready for us for when we get back.
The cost of homemade vs store boughten (sorry using this very word from LHP) is very shocking which for us is important but we also enjoy the bonding of cooking together as Husband and Wife.
