Cabin 2010

It has been a few days since I posted a recipe.  The reason is we went on a 3 day snowmobile vacation! It was super fun and we got to be with friends and people we like to call family.  The cabin was sweet and the food was wonderful.  The snow was perfect and the weather was gorgeous.  The kids had a blast and I even drove a snowmobile.  Jeff and Nicholas did great eating gluten free and tonight's dinner is from leftovers the night I cooked. Three families took turns with meals and we all enjoyed the time away.  The soup is made up but turned out good and Nicholas had seconds! This is always a good sign it was really good. In fact he said "mom you are a great chef and you should be in a cook-off"  I said with who....."i think with Karri"  too cute!
I am thankful he likes my cooking and appreciates good food.

Leftover beef soup

I did this in the crockpot.

1 tbsp olive oil
2 medium carrots chopped
1 can green beans drained
1/8 tsp horshradish
1/8 cup cream
2 cloves garlic mashed
3 1/2 cups water
22 oz marinara sauce-i used home canned
8 oz chicken broth
1/2 cup Mrs Leepers corn elbow macaroni
1 cup left over prime rib shredded
parmasan  cheese for garnish

Stir all ingredients into crock pot and turn on low for 5 hours. It made 6-8 large servings.

Nicholas enjoyed the sleigh riding and the snow.  The snow machines were too loud for him so he did alot of walking.  The Tetons were beautiful and it was a good weekend.  Balto really was happy to see us and has not been very far away from one of since we got home.  There is lots of laundry and wet stinky clothes so I better get busy!
