It has been wet and cold here for days and to help warm up the family I decided to try a new slow cooker soup. Slow cookers are a must have for our family during this time of year. We love hearty flavorful comfort meals without all the time it takes to cook them.
With working most of the day, we want to enjoy our evenings together with our baby before she goes to bed rather than cooking and cleaning in the kitchen. She also has a dairy allergy, so I love finding meals that are family friendly and fit her dietary needs.
With a new catalog comes the opportunity to try new products in your garden. This year we have added a large variety of exciting new seeds, plants and gardening supplies. Over the next few weeks we will introduce you to some of our new for 2018 offerings to help you get insight into what will work best in your garden this year.
We know you have a lot of choices, but many people have limited space when it comes to growing their garden. That is why, this week we are showcasing some of our favorite new vegetables to the Jung Seed Co. catalog that not only work in large spaces but do great in containers or small gardens.
Summer and fall are a fantastic time to experiment with recipes that use your garden harvest. This recipe is one of my favorites because you can add or subtract a lot of different vegetables depending on your taste.
It is so versatile and works great as a side dish or is filling enough to serve as the entrée. A few other vegetables to try in this creamy pasta are: broccoli, artichokes, asparagus, peas or whatever has popped up in your garden! You can serve this dish over zoodles for another way to slip in more veggies and skip carbs! Stir in chicken or shrimp or serve it alongside your favorite grilled protein if your family prefers meat on their dinner plate.
