Winter chill means it’s soup time in Kentucky




Brown ground beef in pan and drain. Add one can of soup plus one can of water. Add chili powder and beans. Cook slowly for about 20 minutes.

This is a quick but tasty chili that Jeanette made when we were all in the Air Force here at the Blue Grass Army Depot. She passed away a few years ago, but she is always remembered by me when I make her chili.

French onion soup


8-10 large onions

1/2 cup margarine

Three 14-oz cans of beef broth

2 and 1/2 cups of water

3 tsp chicken bouillon

1 and 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

3 bay leaves

10 slices of French bread, toasted


Sauté onions in margarine until crisp-tender. Transfer to slow cooker.

Add beef broth, water and bouillon. Mix well. Add Worchester sauce and bay leaves. Cover and cook on low 5 to 7 hours, or until onions are tender. Discard bay leaves.

Ladle into bowls. Top with a slice of bread. I also like to place a slice of Swiss cheese on top of this.
