There's no place like home...especially in Autumn, with a bowl of soup in hand.
I've been busy around the house welcoming my favorite season.
I love the way my home feels all cozy when it's cool and crisp outside
and warm and inviting on the inside.
I wish you could all come visit- I'd make you a nice pot of hot mulled cider, and sit and relax with you on my sofa while we await a warm supper.
Nothing says "Welcome Autumn" like a pot of soup simmering on the stove.
This recipe I just threw together and Big Al ate 3 bowls (one right after the other) then another a little later, so I guess it's a keeper.
It's close to a Poor Boy Soup, and it's very economical and most ingredients are staples so I didn't even have to shop for this recipe.
If you want to give it a try, here's what you'll need:
1/2 onion (minced)
3 tsp. minced garlic
2 Tbsp. butter
Cook onion and garlic in butter until onion is transparent.
Brown ground beef and mix with garlic and butter and all to a large soup pot.
Add: 3 cans chicken broth and 2 bouillon cubes (That have been dissolved in boiling water), 1 can stewed tomatoes, 1 small can (8 oz.) tomato sauce, 1/2 can sweet corn.
Bring to a boil then simmer on low for at least 30 minutes. Add cooked pasta (I used spaghetti) and heat through.
Serve with crusty bread.
