Half-a*% job tonight

I admit, I started out with good intentions, X-man was cooperating for the soup making, but then we went upstairs for a nap and it all went south.

Cabbage & vegetable soup


- 1/2 a large cabbage, chopped
- 3 celery stalks, chopped
- 2 large carrots, sliced
- 2 small onions, chopped
- 3 tbsp crushed tomatoes
- salt, to taste

Fill a large pot with water. Put cabbage. Bring to a boil. Add carrots, celery, onion, salt and crushed tomatoes. Simmer for 15 minutes.

Beets, turnip and chicken

This meal didn't turn out fantastic, it was definitely lacking something, not only in taste, but on my plate, as you'll see in the picture.

I'm wondering what else I could have added to the dish...Looking for ideas for next time.


- 2 beets, sliced
- 1 turnip, sliced 
- 8 green onions, chopped
- 3 chicken breast, pieces
- 1 clove garlic, sliced
- 2 tbsp crushed tomatoes
- 2 cups water

Heat up canola oil in pan. Add onions. After a minute, add beets and turnip.
In small pot, place chicken in water. Bring to a boil. Add garlic and mix in crushed tomatoes. Simmer for 15 minutes.

Plate, serve and enjoy!

My poor plate  :(  And what is with the lighting in this shot?!
