Gina that's the only soup I get around here besides the one I make from scratch. I don't like Progressive, it's not salty enough the condensed soup has more flavor.

Brenda, What can I say I'm just a smartie pants. I can't help myself. :applause: But you know I love ya. MUAAAAHHHHHH (throwing kisses to ya)

I do not have a recipe, but I do the same thing my Mother always did.. Use leftover beef pot roast and broth for starters... If you don't have any brown some gr. beef and drain fat.. start cooking with some water , onion, celery if you have any, and some salt.. Add canned tomatoes.. (I like the crushed tomatoes) after this has simmered awhile, add any leftover veggies from the fridge or freezer. I usually add one large bag of some kind of mixed veggies (frozen), .. These items to be added always.. Couple or more potatoes, cabbage, ... Mother always said that soup was not soup without cabbage in it.. We just make a big potful and freeze some for later.. My sister has been known to call family members and say, "I feel bad, like a cold's coming on or something. Do you have any soup in your freezer?? " So, around here it does not have to be chicken soup to help you feel better when you are ill.. Just Mother's Soup or a reasonable facsimilie..

Libby, my Grandmother used to save the liquids from canned veggies (she did her own canning) freeze it then use it as the liqid base in the soups she used to make. DGM used to tell DM that her sink was the better fed than most people. :doh: I do what you do start with a roast beef and have a meal or two from it then on to the soups and stew with the leftovers. DH makes wonderful gravy so I always have a base to start with if I do start with roast beef. I always bake extra potatoes and this last time forgot some that weren't done so they were way over done by the time I remembered them. :oops: I almost tossed them out but instead left the skin on and cut them up and threw them in the pot. My DM used to just open the fridge and toss in anything that was left over into her stews. She'd even put in mashed potatoes. My DDad used to just shake his head when Mom served soups.
