Friday Fun Day!

November 12th, 2010

Every Friday is “Friday Fun Day” and I post a website, quote, recipe, or story that relates to simple and minimalist living. Sometimes I just post something fun and inspiring!

Welcome to “Friday Fun Day.” As I mentioned above, going forward I will be posting something short yet fun on Fridays. Although I have never been one to advocate that we live our lives waiting for Friday to come, there is something special about the day. It’s the time that most of us take a deep breath after a long week of working hard and look forward to weekend fun.

Also, as a side note, you may notice the icon for my new book on the side of this site. I will be writing about this on Monday. But back to Friday Fun Day…..

This Friday Fun Day, I offer you a simple yet scrumptious vegetarian recipe that’s also easy on the pocket book. It’s called Santa Fe Soup. I can’t take credit for this because my mother gave me this recipe. The weather is turning cooler and most or our appetites are craving something heartier and this is the perfect dish to appease those cravings. You can also freeze this soup easily.


2 lbs of crumbled Boca Burger

1 onion chopped

1 can of Black Beans (16oz)

1 can of Pinto Beans (16oz)

1 can of Kidney Beans (16 oz)

2 cans of white corn (16 oz)

1 can of Rotel tomatoes (16 oz)

1 can of crushed tomatoes (16 oz)

2 packages of Ranch dressing mix

2 packages of taco seasoning


Brown Boca Beef and onion on top of the stove

Stir in Ranch mixes, taco mixes, beans, and tomatoes (don’t drain the beans or tomatoes as this makes the soup)

Add 2 cups of water

Simmer at least two hours

You can garnish this soup with tofu sour cream and green onions. I also like to serve it with cornbread. This recipe is simple, easy, tasty, and healthy!

Bon appétit!

    Paige, your recipe looks scrumptious. I’ll give it my husband – he’s the major cook in the family. Thanks so much.

    Congratulations on your book. I didn’t realize you had one in the making. Aside from being utterly jealous, I’m proud to know such a sincere and genuine author I’ll get that on my Kindle. I’m excited for you!
