Porcupine Skillet - easy ground beef meal with rice. Fast & quick down home cooking

The Original Fat Burning Cabbage Soup

The Original Fat Burning Cabbage Soup - makes a lot & freezes beautifully

Awhile back, someone mentioned Cabbage Soup – in a rather derogatory way. Funny thing is, I love Cabbage Soup! Which isn’t all cabbage, by the way. There’s lot’s of other good stuff in it, too.

Classic Lipton’s Onion Soup Dip

This is the easy classic onion dip, made with Liption's dry onion soup mix (or my home-made version)

Did you grow up with this dip made from Lipton’s Onion Soup and Sour Cream? I did, and we considered it a real treat at our house. Served, of course, with Lay’s Potato Chips, the ridged ones. Or maybe it WAS Ruffles, as Kathryn pointed out in her comment. I don’t think Lay’s Wavy were out way back when in the ’60’s!
