Busy Day Soup

Our rain storm brought back cold weather, so soup sounded good (and quick) for dinner last night.  I made a big pot, so it may get recycled tonight, along with an ‘everything’ loaf of French bread.  Yum…

beef soup

This recipe actually came from Joy’s church as one of their standby, feed-a-crowd-in-a-hurry meals.  It did not have any seasonings in the original version, and I can’t cook without them, so I have embellished the original recipe.

6 c water (I used beef stock)
1 lb ground beef
1 L can chopped tomatoes, undrained
1 pkg frozen mixed vegetables
1 pkg onion soup mix
2 cubes of beef bouillon (use if cooking with water)
½ c macaroni or rice
minced garlic
salt & pepper
Italian seasonings

Brown and drain the ground beef.  Add water and bring to a boil.  (The original recipe called for cooking the beef in the boiling water rather than browning it.)  Add remaining ingredients and simmer for one hour.  Freezes well.

Bon appetit, y’all!

Ciao Sandy!!!
A "strong" soup!
We don't use meat in the soup, I find this method in the East Europe Cooking!!!
I might not comment on the other "cooking" blog!

Have a great Wednesday!!

Now this looks quick, easy, and delicious! We've most definitely been having "soup weather" here lately so a big ol' pot of soup sounds perfect! Plus it wouldn't hurt my "better eating" program!

I bookmarked that. Sounds like one of my many pots... but then no one can ever have too many soup recipes... right?

Have a great day! Hugs!

Soup and french bread would be perfect for the weather here today too. Sounds yummy!

I'll bet you could change out the ground beef for Italian sausage? I know you could. Sounds heavenly.

Have a terrific day honey and stay warm. Big hugs. :)
