Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Hamburger Minestrone Soup

This is a family favorite. Pair it up with some homemade biscuits.
I'm linking this up with Life as Mom for the Ultimate Recipe Swap and the theme is favorite soups. This is probably one of our favorites!

Ingredients:
6 cups of water
5 tsp. of Organic Better than Boullion Beef Base (now you can use beef stock if you choose to equal 6 cups. Even chicken broth would be good.) Like I said use what you have.
2 lbs. ground beef or turkey
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
3/4 c. uncooked elbow macaroni
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
3 celery stalks, chopped
1 16 oz. can of diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans, rinsed
1 cup frozen sweet corn
1 can green beans, drained

Directions:

1. Cook beef, onion and garlic in large soup pot. Drain off grease when done.
2. Bring the 6 cups of water to a boil and add your 5 tsp. of soup base mix well; add to the meat.
3. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until macaroni is cooked through. Approx. 15-20 mins.

Serve with Biscuits!
So quick and easy and delicious!

I love minestrone soup, never put hamburger in it. A must try. I think my family will like it better. My husband doesn't like what he calls meatless soups. THANKS!!! Geri
