  • This is can be a soup or a stew depending on how much liquid you add:
    1 container of chicken broth
    2 cans diced tomatoes and one can whole tomatoes
    1 yellow onion chopped
    1 cup chopped celery
    1 1/2 cups diced potatoes (I leave the skins on for color)
    3 chicken breasts, cubed and cooked
    1/2 tsp marjoram, 1 tsp pepper
    Add the tomatoes and chicken broth, bring to a boil. Add onions, celery, potatoes, chicken, and spices and simmer for about 45 minutes until the vegetables are softened.
    If you want to make it into a soup, add about a half cup of water. The tomatoes will melt with the heat though so mine is always a soup.
    My family loves this!

  • Depends on my mood - sometimes I want something quick & easy - then I brown 2 pounds of hamburger with a few chopped onions, drain, and throw in the crock pot or a big pot on the stove with 2-3 pounds frozen mixed veggies, 46oz of tomato or vegetable juice, beef boullion, black pepper, chili powder, and whatever else sounds good, and let cook 2-6 hours. I'll sometimes add barley or brown rice at the end, or cook some pasta to stir in.

    Sometimes I'm in the mood to sit and chop veggies for hours - then I make potato - potatoes, carrots, onions, celery, I really don't follow a recipe but I make a roaster full and add what sounds good!

    Yesterday I was hungry for creamy broccoli soup - boiled potatoes, carrots, celery. Cooked onions, made white sauce, steamed broccoli, added everything together with 2 cans cream of broccoli, milk, cheese, pepper, salt, parsley.

    I love making soup, but don't really use recipes!
