Day of the Dead
Today we are celebrating Dia de Los Muertos, Day of the Dead. You can read more about it on my other blog, but here I'll share with you my mother's super-simple vegetable-beef soup "recipe." It's not 100% low carb but it's close enough if I avoid the starchy vegetables.
Sam's Vegetable-Beef Soup
Brown one pound of beef cubes with an onion in a little oil of your choice. Toss in a crockpot with a can of tomatoes, beef bouillon cube, bag of Birds Eye frozen vegetable soup mix, and a can of white potatoes. Cook all day. When you come in the door from work you'll be greeted with an amazing scent and a hearty, delicious dinner! Serve some bread alongside if you indulge in such.
