Hunk of Meat Monday: Texas 2-Step Soup Mix in a Jar

I just spent the last four days in sunny California. My girlfriend from the University of Illinois is finishing her PhD at Berkley. So, another gal pal of mine and our husbands headed for San Francisco and wine country for a long weekend. I wanted to cry when I realized the long weekend was over. I will be giving you all the ins and outs of the trip when I have the energy to download the 500+ pictures.

While I was away, some of my gal pals got together for a Freeze-O-Rama day headed up by Cris from Goodeness Gracious. Lucky for me, my friend Megan over at Gal in the Middle put together my meals for me and delivered meals to my freezer. She pretty much rocks and has a great bottle of wine being delivered from Napa Valley with her name on it.

So, since Megan was “pinch-cooking” I tried to make it simple. I sent her the ingredients for Texas 2-Step Soup Mix in a jar with a complimentary pound of homegrown hamburger.

Megan recruited her baby sis, Frugalista, to help her put the jars together.

Check out how beautiful they look. They look remarkably more beautiful than the jars and lids I left with her.

Here is the yummy recipe!
