I decided this week to do something fun and different! I may not be able to do it all week, but I got a soup cookbook at the library and beginning tomorrow, I am going to try a recipe out of it, hopefully all week! I also have a bread cookbook that I am going to try new bread recipes also.

I am hoping this way to save some money and be able to try some new recipes. I was thinking about starting at the first recipe and just going through the book, but I am not sure if I am that adventurous!

I have so many cookbooks, so I figure I should try some of these recipes. If I pick three cookbooks to use in one week, hopefully it works. The problem is for soup, I do not remember the last time I used a recipe!

Here is a good fall soup recipe and bread to go with it.

The rolls are nice as you can use leftover oatmeal!

Meatball soup

8 potatoes cubed in 1 “ cubes
2 carrots grated

1 onion diced
2-garlic cloves finely minced

1-pound ground beef
1/4 c. breadcrumbs
1 egg
1 t. onion powder
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. salt

Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 t. dill weed

1/2 T oil
In large pan heat the oil and add onions and garlic. When limp add grated carrots. Cook until limp. Add the potatoes and water to about 3 “ above potatoes. Bring to a boil. In a bowl mix ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, onion powder, garlic powder and salt together and form into tiny meatballs and drop carefully into the boiling water.

Add salt and pepper to taste, dill weed. If it needs it add some beef bouillon.
Simmer until meatballs are done and potatoes are tender!

Oatmeal rolls

2 c. leftover oatmeal (or 2 c. water, 1 c. oatmeal cooked together)
3 T. butter

In large bowl: Dissolve
1 pkg yeast 1/3 c. warm water

Mix in:

Oat mixture
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 t. salt
4 c. flour

Beat until smooth

Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Knead until smooth, about 6-8 min. Let rise one hour. Punch down. Let rest 10 min. then shape into 18 balls.

Place into 9×13 pan. Let raise until doubled (about 45 minutes). Bake at 350 for 20-25 min. until golden brown.
