Since the weather is getting colder, I thought it might be nice to share some inexpensive good recipes to warm you up on a cold day. Here's what I made today:
Vegetable Beef Soup
about 1/2-1 lb Hamburger Crumbles (Browned and Frozen) I didn't measure it...
1 package mixed vegetables (corn, green beans, carrots, peas, lima beans
two large potatos, peeled and diced
1 jar homemade tomato base (you could use one can of tomato paste plus basil, garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano to taste)
about 2 tbsp chicken stock (the powdered stuff)
Bring to a boil and let simmer for 2-3 hours.
Today was the first time I've made this soup, but I think it will be a keeper recipe, it is one of the best vegetable soups I've had for a long time, I think it was adding the chicken stock and my soup base that made it good. My total cost less than $2.00 for 8 servings. (The beef is from a cow my parents and I had butchered...42 cents per lb butchering cost and the vegetables were on sale for 50 cents at Hy-Vee) my other costs were minimal, since I had it all on hand.
What is your favorite recipe for a cool Autumn night?

Vittalia, great idea, thanks for the recipe. I think it would easily be "veganized" (made vegetarian) by substituting soy crumbles for the ground meat and vegetarian or mushroom bouillon for the chicken broth. I am going to try it!
