Today is Homemade Soup Day – can you guess what’s for dinner?
Minestrone soup is a favorite around here. This super quick recipe has become a staple during winter months. I can keep all the ingredients on hand (except the spinach- which is optional). And it cooks up quick, which is very important for my busy family. It is a complete meal in one bowl.
For all you foodies out there, yesterday was National Homemade Soup Day. On a cold winter day, nothing is better than a bowl of homemade soup.
A family favorite around my house is Hamburger Vegetable Soup. It has enough meat to keep the hubby happy and lots of vegetables (carrots, corn, green beans, peas, and celery). I love the recipe because I can throw it in the slow-cooker and have dinner on the table when the hubby gets home from work.
HAMBURGER VEGETABLE SOUP
1 lb. of ground beef – browned

1 clove of garlic minced

The next time the weather is cold and rainy, mix up a batch of Hamburger Vegetable Soup and stay warm.
