Today I wore this scarf that I broke down and finally purchased back in November. I’ve had it and another (which I also bought) but in a different color from Nordstrom pinned for awhile. While catching up on Bloglovin’ I see on one of my favorite blogs Living In Yellow that the scarf is on sale for $9.98. I paid 60% more! Just another Law of Murphy’s.
I know it’s Tuesday but with the holiday it’s really my Monday and it’s a dreary, rainy day so I need a little help from my Young Living Oils.
Yesterday we took down Christmas. Always bittersweet, always a pain in the butt, always wondering why I have so much stuff.
What is it about rainy days that make me want some soup? Of course I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. All day at work I was thinking about one of my favorite soups I found in one of my many Taste of Home cookbooks I bought years ago. I have found so many amazing recipes in my Taste of Home cookbooks. This Swedish Meatball Soup is a blue ribbon contest winning recipe. I altered some of the ingredients tonight and it still tasted just as good as the original recipe.
Swedish Meatball Soup Recipe
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/3 cup 1% milk
- 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 3 cups water
- 1 pound red potatoes, cubed
- 1 package (12 ounces) frozen peas
In a large bowl mix egg, bread crumbs, ground beef, 1/3 cup milk and season with salt and pepper. Form into 1 inch meatballs. Brown in olive oil in a large pot. Remove meatballs from pot and set aside. Add butter to the pot and melt. Stir in flour and gradually add 3 cups water stirring until smooth. Cook for two minutes and allow to thicken. Add beef bouillon and garlic salt and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil. Add potatoes and meatballs and return to a boil. Cover and simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add the frozen peas and one cup milk and cook another ten minutes.
