Tasty Tuesday: Veggie Beef Soup

When your checking account is low and the leftovers of delicious meals past have taken over the fridge, WWYC? [What Would You Cook]

On your quest to produce something tasty and filling for yourself and/or family, I know you're repeating the Gumbo Writer cooking mantra -- "cheap, easy, good" -- while trying to think of somthing a little different to serve. Yay! You can take off your thinking cap and make this quick but hearty soup below.

Muss-Go Soup {Everything in the fridge Muss Go!}

small jar tomato sauce
leftover spaghetti sauce w/ground meat
cooked squash
leftover sausage links (cut small)
1 meatloaf (chopped into hunks)
leftover porkchop casserole with rice & peas
1 can each cheapo green beans and corn

Throw all ingredients into a large pot or use similar/compatible ingredients hanging around in your refridgerator. Stir, taste, season, simmer for a few hours.

Make a pan of cornbread, and voila -- soup's on! You can feed a ton of people for a couple of meals or serve once and freeze the rest for a super easy meal again later.

Oh, a soup made from leftovers! Gotta love 'em.

Angie, if you know anyone who is searching for a crit partner or group, send them to my blog. I'm doing some matchmaking for writers. Thanks.

Hey Angie, I LOVE how you post these recipes. I finally had a chance last night to make the Loaded Potato Soup you put the recipe up for last week. Hubby totally loved it! It was so simple and very good. Thanks!

This is ever so timely, Angie. The wind is howling, it's raining (and raining and raining) and soup for supper sounds fabulous. Thank you.

I think even I could handle that! Thank you!

I'm sick right now, so all I'm eating is soup. My Mom used to empty the fridge and she called her concoction Everything-But-The-Kitchen-Sink soup! Bravo, Angie. Your soup looks delicious!

Looks good.. probably far better than mine might. You have a better class of leftovers. ;)

It's the 17th of the month and I am in the hole 37.95.

Love soup! :) Yours looks delicious. Too bad I can't smell it. But right now, I can't smell anything. I'm off to see what's left in my fridge...

Soup is good any time.

Who doesn't love a good vegetable soup?! Of course, to make this one I would also have to make spaghetti, squash, sausage links, meatloaf and porkchop casserole in order to get the leftovers . . . I'm probably better off just starting from scratch!
