My friend Denise sent me this recipe and I loved it! The spiders turned out so cute! The only change I made to the recipe was I used a yellow cake mix as that was all I had on hand. Check out Skinny Taste for all the ingredients! The girls went crazy over them!
My other contribution to the party was a big pot of Beef Barley soup. I found this recipe years ago and when I want something to take to a pot luck or a party, I love to make this soup. It always gets great reviews!
2 lbs. ground beef
2 medium onions, chopped
2-3 stalks of celery
3 cups water
2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) beef broth
1 cup quick-cooking barley
2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes with garlic and onion, undrained
2 tsp. Worchestershire sauce (the girls prefer if I do not put this in)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried basil
In a dutch oven, cook beef, onions and celery until meat is no longer pink and vegetables are tender; drain. Stir in the water and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Add barley; cover and simmer for 10-20 minutes or until barley is tender. Stir in the remaining ingredients; heat throughly. I love to freeze the leftovers and have in my freezer ready for a day when I don't feel like cooking. The problem is I usually don't have much leftovers!
Have a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping bye,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah
