Day 36: So Good We Had It Again!

More leftovers! I'd had my eye on this container of beef & noodles for several weeks. Another day when temperatures started at -10 below in the morning, and never reached double digits during the day. More comfort food needed!
The original recipe that created these leftovers can be found HERE


I thawed out the beef & noodles overnight. Dump them into the crock pot and add a little beef soup base and some water. The noodles soak up almost all the liquid when the cool, freeze, and thaw.

Add the soup base...

A couple cups of water...

Cover and put it on high. Unfortunately, I got it started too late and it wasn't heating up quickly enough. Plan B!  Got out a pot and transferred so it will heat up quicker. Mashed potatoes are cooking...


Mashed potatoes are done, beef & noodles are hot, and we've got a nice dinner. A layer of mashed potatoes covered with beef & noodles. Sprinkle on some salt & pepper and dig in!
