    Mama and my sister and niece came to visit and bring DDs back home from a weekend visit.
    I decided since it is so chilly here to fix a pot of soup. I opened a quart of home canned tomato juice into the bottom of my soup pot. Chopped an onion( I am out of dehydrated right now) and put that and 2 c of precooked frozen ground beef in the juice to cook and thaw. Then added a quart of home canned crushed tomato. Went to my pantry, and threw in handfuls of my dehydrated veggies- carrots, corn, english peas, green beans, as well as dehydrated cabbage and a handful of celery. Stirred it all up and let it cook a while. Just before we were ready to eat, I added about a cup of uncooked macaroni and a pint of okra/tomato blend and a half pint of rotel - both also home canned. Made a skillet of mexican style cornbread to go with it. No one noticed any difference. I explained the lack of potatoes with a simple " I was out of veg-all and didn't have any potatoes"
    The only thing I noticed was that the carrots have a taste to them- kinda like hay or something, not sure. Family will not eat the carrots by themselves, but they love the english peas. So-so on the corn, and this was my first use of the greenbeans. Will have to try them by themselves and see what the results are.

    Did you Juliane the carrots or slice them? I slice them soak them in lemon juice and make carrot chips.

    These carrots came from Honeyville Grain and are in little cubes.
