Every once in a while I crave Tomato Soup and this Simple Tomato Soup Instant Pot or Stovetop is a great one to whip up at the drop of a hat.
I wasn’t sure whether to call these Old Fashioned Marinated Carrots or Classic Marinated Carrots, but either way they’re delicious, especially in the Summer. They’re cool and refreshing. The Marinade is almost like a tangy Catalina (or “French” dressing, if you’re as old as I am) and they’re the perfect thing for a summer picnic or potluck.
If you’re from the Midwest, you might be familiar with Minerva’s. There’s one not far from my hometown in Iowa and there’s one not too far from my folk’s in South Dakota. Although they’ve expanded over the years, don’t mistake this for your average chain – it is THE place to wine and dine someone! I was lucky enough to go there for my birthday dinner last month.
