It was nasty outside today. It rained and hailed and the wind blew. It was a good soup day. But I didn't make soup today.
Then why did I title my blog post 'hamburger soup?"
Well I got this e-mail today from my friend Tomi:
I made Hamburger Soup today. You gave me the recipe years and years ago back in Elko. Every time I make it I think of you.
The first time I had Hamburger soup was at your house. It was game night, and you were hosting. Dink and Cash were there too. I think we played Trivial Pursuit that night-and it was a hotly contested game. Good times!!!
It made me smile to think of old times and old friends. And I'm glad to know that the Hamburger Soup lives on. The Handyman hates the name, but he likes the soup.
Years ago... 2008...I had a very short-lived 'soup' blog and I posted Hamburger Soup. I thought it would be a good day to repost it. A windy "lion" kind of March day.
Monday spring will be here--can't be soon enough for me!
Here is the original post of Hamburger Soup on my soup blog "Ahhhsome Soups"
(it's basically just a beef vegetable and barley soup, made with ground beef, but it's really good. These pictures are old. I had to steal them from my old blog---taken with my old camera)
1 to 1 1/2 pound lean ground beef
4 cups beef broth
4 cups water
16 oz can chopped tomatoes
1 medium onion--chopped
2 ribs of celery--sliced
1/3 cup pearl barley
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tsp. season salt
1 tsp. dried basil
1 bay leaf
Brown the ground beef, drain off the grease. Add water and remaining ingredients in order given. Simmer for 2 hours or until the vegetables are tender.
