More knitting, less cooking: Cassidy's cans.

Today in this installment of "More knitting, less cooking" we are featuring Miss Cassidy, her 10-Can soup recipe, and her daughter's darling little covered "can."

This is the Mara shawlette (free Ravelry pattern) that Cassidy recently made from Tosh Sock yarn, modeled by her utterly charming daughter.

Sidenote: these amazing photos make me want to steal Cassidy's Hipstamatic camera!

Mara actually calls for a DK yarn, which shows you how flexible the pattern is. (To see a Mara that Gina recently made from Blue Sky Suri Merino, check out the Sept. 13 post on our Facebook page).

Cassidy's also working on a Beekeeper's Quilt by Tiny Owl Knits. She's using leftover sock yarns from her stash.

That quilt's gonna take awhile, so it's a good thing Cassidy has this ultra-fast recipe to rely on. Just open 10 cans, dump in the pot and get back to your knitting!

Cassidy's 10 Can Soup
2 cans Ranch style beans
2 cans Fiesta corn
2 cans white hominy (or, if you don't like hominy, add some black beans)
2 cans white chicken breast (or, it's great to de-bone a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken - if you can put down the needles for an extra five minutes)
2 cans Italian-style stewed tomatoes
1 pkg. Knorr's veggie seasoning, or taco seasoning- both are great!

Open cans, dump in soup pot, simmer, enjoy!
I like to top mine with crunched tortilla chips and a bit of shredded cheese.

An easy recipe that won't go straight to your "can" - providing you take it easy on the cheese :) Enjoy!
