Mom and Sun

Before I leave for sunny Florida, I want to leave you with warm thoughts and a recipe for a delicious vegetable soup. It makes a complete and satisfying meal for a cold winter night.

Millie's Hearty Vegetable Soup

1 1/2 pounds chuck with bone
3 carrots - diced
3 stalks celery - diced
1 whole onion
1/4 cup ketchup
1 6 oz. pkg. vegetable soup mix with mushrooms
salt and pepper to taste.

Place meat and bones in a large pot, add about seven cups of water. When water comes to a boil, spoon off film that comes to the top and discard. Lower heat and add remaining ingredients with the exception of the small flavor packet which is added the last ten minutes of the cooking time. Stir occasionally.

Cook at medium-low temperature for 1 1/2 hours.

Yes, you read correctly - 1/4 cup ketchup - that really adds a lot to the flavor of the soup.

If you like a really thick soup, you can use two packages of soup mix. This soup tastes even better served the next day.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a great New Year! Stay well and stay warm!!

Darling Millie,
My GD you're adorable. What a great pix! I'm sending best wishes for a smooth move to sunny
FL (Lucky you!) and the very best Channuka and New Year. I look forward to your posts from paradise.
Don't worry about me. I'll just be sitting here in the cold and dark waiting for you to entertain your ever-appreciative audience.
Your biggest fan,
Hey Millie, I love that mask or whatever you were holding. Where you get it ?

Have a nice time in the sun

Great photo, Millie! And thanks for the soup recipe....even in Florida, we love soup in the winter, so I'll try it out.
Safe journey down here...we warmed it up for you.
Hi Millie,
Have a great trip!!!
I look forward to reading about life in sunny Florida this winter once your computer is up and running again--

Hi Millie!!!

Great soup recipe thank you. I hope your trip to FL is uneventful. I look forward to reading your blog while your down there.
Happy Holidays....and have a safe and wonderful trip.

You are so funny, you are sitting there in the cold and dark waiting for me to entertain you, well , I am sitting here with overcast skies with a bit of rain now and then. The other day we had record breaking rain.

Boy, are you going to be surprised when you read my next post from paradise!!

You asked about that ceramic piece that I was holding, my son and daughter in-law gave that to me as a Hanakkah gift. It was made in Mexico.

They know I like FACES so that gets added to my collection.

Hope you enjoy the soup and I know you are enjoying your new car.

My flight down to rainy Florida was smooth as silk.
The 3 1/2 hours flew right by!!

Hope you have good luck with that soup recipe.
Millie, I am so behind in checking in on blogsites because of all the hooplah...I hope you had a very happy Hannuka! Can't wait to try this soup; love the picture of a beautiful piece of art!
