I'm Late, I'm Late!

I'm running waaaaay late tonight and should be in bed, so I'll make this brief--just so you don't wonder if something terrible happened to me.

I've spent a good part of the weekend getting things ready for the wool class I'm teaching at Bear Paws & Hollyhocks next Saturday and I'm nearly ready--which is pretty nice, considering that I'm usually still stuffing patterns the night before! But I have all my kits made up, pattern covers and backs printed, and Hubby's getting copies of the patterns made and picking up pattern photos tomorrow, so we should be about done by tomorrow night--yay!

We were surprised with cooler temperatures and a bit of rain today, so I thought it would be the perfect day to get the crockpot out and make 9-Can Soup. Here's the recipe so you can make it too:

2 cans of Hormel tamales--slice the tamales 1/4"
2 cans of no-bean chili
1 can of beans (here's where I change things and make 10-Can Soup--I add two cans of beans, different types)
1 can of corn
1 can of hominy
1 can of green chiles
1 can of diced tomatoes (I used the kind that has chiles too for a little more heat)

Dump all of it into the crock pot and cook on high for about four hours or on low for about six to eight hours. I like to serve it with diced onion and shredded cheese. Yum!

Besides making soup, I made a last batch of peach jam, which only yielded a couple small jars, but that's enough for us!

Back to work tomorrow, so I guess I'd better get to bed. Thanks for visiting!
