Homemade Vegetable Soup

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope everyone's MLK Day was nice and that you got to spend it with your families. I know my son was out of school so we had a fun pajama day! I had a great trip over the weekend. As most of you know, we went out of town to visit family. It was a nice change from our small town living!

The weather here was nice over the weekend {thankfully} but now it has gone back to dreadfully cold! Burrr! So, I decided to make homemade soup for supper. It really hit the spot and was amazing!

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • a big can of Tomato Juice
  • 1 can Whole Kernel Corn
  • 1 can Cut Green Beans
  • 1 can Whole White Potatoes
  • 1 can Sliced Carrots
  • 1 can Mixed Vegetables
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • salt & pepper to taste

As you can see, I used mostly store brand vegetables. If you have fresh veggies left from your garden that you froze, you can just those too. You can also cook potatoes until tender and then slice them up. I used a can of whole potatoes instead because we were out and this was a last minute supper decision. We wanted something quick and simple. I just sliced the whole ones up because it was much cheaper to buy them whole than to buy the sliced ones! If you have any other favorite veggies, throw them in as well! 

Once you get your ground beef cooked and drained, all you have to do is mix the ingredients in with it and cook until boiling. Then, reduce the heat and just keep an eye on it until you are happy with how well it looks!  I waited until it started to boil before I added my sugar, salt and pepper. This soup is so yummy and hits the spot on a cold night!

I hope everyone has a great day and here's wishing to warmer weather!  =)

From my front porch to yours,
