    Reuben Soup was good, but a bit too salty. I've marked the recipe to reduce salt in future. I also used my birthday present to cook it- I got a new programmable crock pot. I've discovered that the high setting is a lot hotter than my old one, so the soup started to scorch after I added the swiss cheese. I caught it before it got ruined thank goodness. I made low carb biscuits using Carbalose flour and they turned out really nice (I've learned from previous to tone down the salt in them too, since the Carbalose flour is kind of salty). So it was a few steps along the learning curve tonight.

    Tonight my dinner is eye round roast which was cooked in an oven on low temp ( 250°) for 6 hours in which I basted it with my own concoctions, boxed scalloped potatoes, steamed Mediterranean Blend veggies and cranberry sauce.

    It's super easy: dice up an onion, mince some garlic, and slice 1 red bell pepper. Cut your meat (1-1 1/4 lb) into 1x2" slices- mouth sized y'know. Saute the meat in some oil and butter until no longer pink. Take it out and saute the vegetables until softened. Add the meat back into the pan and add 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, and 3 Tbsp Hungarian sweet paprika (or a mix of sweet and hot if you like some spice in your life). Stir about 30 seconds until fragrant, then add 3/4 to 1 cup beef stock, bring to a boil then cut back to a bare simmer and cover for 10-15 minutes. Stir in a cup of sour cream or yogurt and bring it back to warm (don't boil!). That's it. Serve over noodles or rice, or even with toast. You could also substitute chicken for the beef, or heck, maybe venison?

    yum! sounds similar to a casserole I make a lot. I like it with swiss cheese; what kind did you use?

    Used a bit of sharp cheddar as that's what I have currently. I think some smoked gouda would be good
