This is for you Cyndyava...and anyone else who has a hankering for some fall soup.
This is a what you have at the moment type of soup.
Here we go-
Recipe:: in one pot
*brown hamburger (leanest) on medium-season with garlic and onion powders and johhny's seasoning salt
*add in three parts water and one part spaghetti sauce (I also add in braggs liquid aminos and beef better than boillion paste)
Boil (taste here and there to see if the taste is the strength of tomatoe-y beef-y that you want)
*now I add in the veggies in the order of hardness so the softer ones dont overcook.
when carrots and potatoes are almost tender add in:
Salt at this point and I add butter for added good fats for my kids brains. :o)
I make large amounts so we can put a little in the freezer, have some the next day or take a bowl to a neighbor.
