Just dump it!

Leftovers smeftovers. We actually call leftover night “Smorgishborgish”, much more fun to say! That’s when we just throw it all on the counter and let everyone choose. We also have “La Gringa Cafe” and “Dump Soup”.

Tonight it’s “Dump Soup”. I was seriously doubting my decision as I looked over the items that were to go into this soup:

  • Broccoli
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Red Beans and Rice with Andouille  sausage
  • A noodle casserole dish with tomato sauce, green onions, cream cheese, cheese, ground beef
  • Chili (canned-we used it on top of hot dogs the first time around)

In it all went. I heated it, stirred and blended with my magic immersion blender, added enough water to make it the consistency of “creamy vegetable soup” and dug in for a try. It’s amazing!! Seriously this is the best thing ever! Okay, “best thing ever” but be going a bit far, but the girls like it, too.

Maybe someday I’ll have the guts to serve it to guests (my nephews don’t count-we made “Shrek Soup” for them and well, it’s was green, ‘nuf said. But they ate it, and I think our girls actually enjoyed it-they asked for seconds!!).

I’ll make some cornbread this afternoon and we’ve got dinner AND an uncluttered fridge!

    So glad to see you blogging again. I’ve missed it! 🙂 You crack me up. Someday I’ll get an immulsion blender and give your dump soup a try.

    I know you say that Dump Soup is good but seriously, it sounds so gross! Kudos to you, though, for working through the dreaded leftovers.
