I haven’t published a recipe in a coon’s age. I think it’s because I’ve been too busy trying new ones of everyone else’s!
But I have a quilting party to go to later tonight, and it’s a potluck with a theme, and the theme this time is Soup & Sandwiches, so I decided to make an old standby of my grandmother’s — Hodge Podge.
I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off all day so far — appointments, errands, grocery shopping, chores, etc. — and I still had time to make this with a minimum of effort and fuss.
Here’s what you need to make it:
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
3 cans condensed minestrone soup
1 31-oz. can Pork ‘n’ Beans
1 1/2 cups chopped celery
3 cups water
1 Tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed oregano
Here’s how you make it:
Brown the ground beef and onion together in a large pot. Drain, if necessary, and add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for about 20 minutes. Can it get any easier than that? I think not!
I dished up a bowl to leave at home so My Cowboy could have some supper while I’m gone, and I’m planning to just transfer the rest of it into my crockpot for keeping it warm at the party.
Now to gather up those UFOs I’m planning on working on at the party . . .
I hope you all have a fun evening as well!
