It is that time of the year…Christmas Time! Why do I feel so behind and it is only December 1st? I finally made the journey to the attic yesterday and started getting down the decorations. I put on some Christmas music and started decorating. I found many reasons to stop….and one was that I was thinking of my Mom while decorating and decided to make a pot of her Hamburger Veggie Soup 🙂
My mom would always make this soup. In fact, I really do remember any other soup that she made. It was a family favorite. I sure do miss her (and Dad), but so glad I have so many memories that I cherish…as simple as a pot of soup!
I would love to hear from you, what is one of your favorite dishes that your Mom makes or made? Please leave it in a comment below. I have said this before, if your parents are still with you…have them write down your favorites recipes and make sure you get lots of photos of you and your parents together. You will be so happy you did.
Mom’s Hamburger Veggie Soup
- 1 – 1 1/2 lbs ground beef, season with salt and pepper and cook until done
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 potatoes, peeled and diced
- 2 handfuls of Kluski or some kind of home style noodles
- 1 can corn, undrained
- 1 can cut green beans, undrained
- 2 can tomato sauce or 1 large
- 1 can diced tomatoes with garlic and spices
- 1 heavy Tablespoon dried basil
- 1 tsp garlic
- salt and pepper
Fill soup pot with 1/4 to 1/2 full of water. Add diced onion and potatoes. Bring to a boil, add 2 handfuls of noodles. Boil until done. Add hamburger, veggies, tomatoes, tomato sauce, basil, garlic, salt and pepper. Simmer 1/2 hour and ready to serve.
Note: You really can add whatever veggies you want. I did add some shredded carrots that I had in the frig. This makes a pretty big pot of soup. My mom always used Kluski noodle…in this soup and her beef and noodles. I usually do too, but I had these on hand.
Guess what I am having for lunch? Really good with some crusty bread. Well, I seemed to put off decorating again….off to the attic!
