Thank you so much for all the kind words on my Christmas Home Tour post. I enjoyed putting it together and participating in the blog hop too.
It's a wait and see game at my house these days. My husband was just diagnosed with the flu yesterday. He has been sick off and on all week, so he wasn't really sure he had the flu. He got the flu shot late (about 2 weeks ago) and was exposed to the flu at work before he was completely protected. So, that may explain why he has a mild case. The flu shot isn't protecting against all strains that are out this year either. So, for me, it's a waiting game to see if I'm going to get it or if my flu shot will fully protect me. I got mine in early November. Hoping my kids won't catch it either. Arrgh! That is why I rely so heavily on a good flu shot. I HATE THE FLU WORST THAN ANYTHING!!!!
But, I didn't post today to nag about all of that. I wanted to share this wonderful homemade soup recipe with you. I will provide the link at the end of this post for the recipe.
First, you gather these ingredients, plus ground beef (not pictured).
Then, you chop up some onion, celery and garlic.
In a large stock pot, brown the ground beef along with the items above.
Drain the mixture above.
Then, chop up some potatoes, carrots and bell peppers.
Then add all of those items to the pot.
Then, add the rest of the ingredients; whole tomatoes, beef broth, tomato paste, salt, pepper, dried parsley flakes, oregano, and cayenne pepper.
Let it simmer for a while until cooked through.
It is good and makes a LOT! We will be eating on this for days. It's a great meal to eat when you're sick with the flu too. LOL!

Hope you have a great weekend.
