Seems like a simple thing, but I've never made soup before. Why would I when getting already made soup for so little in the stores? Except I don't all that often because with exception of the microwavable soups from Campbell's, which are more expensive, most soups come in two servings per can and trying to store the second portion for later is a pain. And I made chicken stock yesterday so I'm looking for things to do with it. I saw one recipe on The Kitchen that utilized a slow cooker and it's the front runner so far of the soup I'd like to try. Carrots, celery, onions, garlic all go in the slow cooker with 8 cups of chicken stock and two cups of water. Add to it larger sized beans, like kidney, lima, and navy. Cook for 8 hours. In the last hour add a cup of barley. When done, add a couple hand fulls of spinach to wilt in.
It's about an hour's work total I want to say. I get my mise en place ready before I do any cooking, so I'm ready to go. And I clean up along the way, so that may add time.
You can cheat the tomatoes with crushed or diced canned tomatoes. And I cook the chicken ahead of time because I don't want to touch raw chicken (I use the plastic bags from the grocery store as gloves and take the chicken out of the package).
And I use crunchy peanut butter, too. There's a comment in there about using Jif because it's a little sweeter, and if you use natural hippy peanut butter it tastes like it's missing something. I can see that happening, so stick with Jif.
There's nothing an agnostic can't do if he doesn't know whether he believes in anything or not.
Pretty sure peanut butter has nothing to do with it. But if having to eat crunchy peanut butter is the price of admission to live in the city, I'll pass. Just curious, do you like lumpy yogurt too? Cheesecake with raisins?

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
