Last night I made this Family Hamburger Soup I found in a Pillsbury recipe book I have and it was delicious.
1 lb lean ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cups diced, peeled potatoes
1 cup sliced celery
1 bag (12 oz) frozen mixed vegetables (I used a mixture of fresh and frozen)
3 cups water
2 (10 1/2 oz) cans condensed beef broth
1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, cook ground beef and onion over medium-high heat until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.
2. Add the remaining ingredients; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce head to low; cover and simmer 18 to 20 mintues or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
For dessert I made Vanilla Cupcakes from my Cook Yourself Thin cookbook. They were delicious too. I think Joey at 4 of them already. Good thing they are low fat

This year to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary we went to dinner at Cucina Toscana and then spent the night at Anniversary Inn.
Dinner was a lot of fun and expensive BUT amazingly delicious. Cucina Toscana is considered one of Salt Lake’s finest restaurants and has received numerous awards. If you are looking for the best Italian food in Salt Lake, this is the place to go. I look forward to going there again.
We have spent every anniversary so far at Anniversary Inn. It’s a nice bed and breakfast with themed rooms. Our stay this time wasn’t the best (the room was cold and our upstairs neighbors played FM 100 blaring loud for 3 hours in the middle of the night) but we still had fun.
Joey spoiled me this year with anniversary gifts. He bought me two cookbooks from America’s Test Kitchen:
and a Garmin Nuvi 1200:
What a happy surprise. Thanks honey!
