hamburger soup

It's been cooling down a lot in the last few weeks, and we've consequently been eating a lot of soup! I made this recipe for dinner tonight; it's one of our favorites!

Hamburger Soup

1 lb ground beef
4 c. water
1 can (14 1/2 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
3 medium carrots, sliced
2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 medium onion, chopped
4 tsp beef bouillon granules
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1 c. fresh or frozen green beans
  • Cook beef and drain. In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients except the green beans; bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender. Add beans. Cover and simmer 15 minutes longer or until the beans are tender.
The recipe also calls for 1/2 cup chopped celery, but I hate cooked celery so I always leave that out. I also usually add extra potatoes and carrots. It's so yummy!

In other news, Thomas's play is this week! It runs Thursday through Sunday. I'm excited to see it, and I'm also really excited for it be over so I'll get to see more of my husband! Other than that, we've just got the same old school and teaching going on. fun, fun...
