Gooseberry Patch Giveaway!

Gooseberry Patch is having a blogging giveaway! Details are found on their blog.

So, here is my blog to enter the giveaway, because I love their cookbooks, and I'm all about getting something in a giveaway!!

Tonight I made Taco Soup from the book GBP Family Favorites.

I'm so happy to find so many recipes in my GBP collection that are diabetic friendly. Even without the nutritional breakdown, I can look at the ingredients and see right off if it is something I can eat. 

With this recipe, as with most things I cook, I did adjust it a bit for my own taste. I added about 1 cup of Dreamfields Pasta, which is diabetic friendly pasta. (YUM!)

Here is the recipe, it's a great one to share!

Taco Soup

15.25 oz. can whole kernal Mexican-style corn
15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 14.5 oz. cans chicken broth
1-1/2 cup chunky mild salsa
Cheddar cheese, shredded for garnish, if desired
(I added 1 cup pasta, optional)

Combine corn, beans, broth and salsa in a Dutch oven.  Cook over low heat until thoroughly heated.  Top with shredded cheese if desired.  Makes 7 cups.  *If pasta is used, heat soup to boiling, add pasta, cover and simmer until pasta is tender.

And as part of the GBP blog giveaway, I have pictures to include.  Since I'm taking the pictures myself, it was a bit tricky, so I had to get 2 pictures.

also with our Boeren Kaas Gouda. Recipe calls
for Cheddar, but I'm always experimenting
with our cheeses that we make.  The result
was delicious!

Me, with the cookbook and my serving of soup.

Since today was a snowy day, this was the perfect soup!!

Hope that everyone is staying safe and warm during this snowy time.  At least snowy here in our neck of the woods in southeast Ohio! Will be posting more snow pictures tomorrow! Finally got them off of my camera and on the computer.
