Now that Thanksgiving and the last of the business trips are over, I'm settling down to a couple of weeks at home. In keeping with my decision to eat at home more often than had become our habit, I made soup for supper tonight. I love soup, so I was very glad to discover Soup's On Saturday This lady posts a soup recipe every Saturday. I'm definitely going to check out some of the soups she has posted.
Tonight's soup was a very basic Vegetable Beef Soup. Like many basic soups, it lends itself to whatever is on hand.
Earlier this week, I thawed a pint of left-over roast beef from the freezer, cooked it with onions, celery, and garlic, then shredded the beef. For supper that night, I added brown gravy and served it over noodles. Today's soup used the left-over beef in a tomato-based soup with mixed vegetables. I had hoped to add a can of stewed tomatoes, but we didn't have any in the pantry.
