"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing..." -Helen Keller
  The man wanted soup… well, he actually just commented that he loves a good thick soup, and I, not knowing what else in the local supermarket would thicken a soup, whipped out the cornstarch and a whole bunch of veggies and got cooking. This was easy and actually turned out quite well… Compliments to the chef, I suppose.  

½ c. cornstarch combined with some water

3 c. chicken broth

2 T. Italian seasoning

1 t. salt

½ t. black pepper



7 small tomatoes, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

2 medium potatoes, diced (Now’s a good time to mention I don’t know the difference between chopped and diced…)

2 carrots, diced

1 ear of corn, de-kerneled

several long green bean strands, chopped


Combine all ingredients in the crock pot.  I cooked it on low for 3 hours, covered, then on high for one, uncovered to allow it to thicken a bit more. The man was happy.

  We ate this with some cornbread for a great little lunch.  

An original recipe.
