T.evenire Cooks ~ My Mom's Homemade Soup

Growing up my mom was not much of cooker from scratch. My mom is a box kinda cooker. You know...open a box, cook/warm then serve. Surprisingly, it was not because she couldn't cook. She is actually a good cook. There a 2 dishes that my mom has mastered...Gumbo & Homemade Beef Vegetable Soup. Gumbo I love and honestly have never tried to cook.

But Soup...Yes ma'am I make it quite often. Anytime one of the kids or my husband has the sniffles soup can be found on the stove simmering.

Today I decided to share my Mom's Beef Vegetable Soup Recipe.

Here's my disclaimer...I do not use traditional measurements because I was taught to cook this soup in the Martha Stewart Pot that she bought me for Christmas. Also, this soup can be seasoned to your family's taste buds.  This is how I prepare the soup for my family. 

Here goes...

Package of Stew Meat {chop into small squares}
4 Cubes of Beef Bouillon
1 onion
1 can of tomato paste {small}
1 can on tomato sauce {small}
1 small handful of uncooked pasta {optional}
1 palm of uncooked rice {optional}
1 package of frozen mixed vegetables {Walmart brand is my favorite}

Bring to boil a large pot of water, add finely chopped onions and stew meat. Bring to boil about 30 minutes, taste the meat to ensure the meat is tender. Add more water. Stir in tomato paste then tomato sauce. Add your frozen vegetables. Bring to boil again for about 1 hr check often add water as needed. Once the soup cooks down to your desire thickness season to taste. Reduce heat add rice/pasta cook until rice/pasta is tender.

Serve Hot and Enjoy!

The Love Tour {Morehouse College}

iHave been married to my husband for 13+ years and honestly we have been through good, great, bad and AWFUL times. But that's just the trials of marriage. In an effort to keep the fire burning in the midst of raising 4 kids, church obligations, running 2 successful businesses, we have set out to reclaim our alone time by introducing {The Love Tour} to our life. It started out as a simple weekend away from kids, work and to focus on each other. It is now an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING time where we tour various cities, restaurants, venues and hotels. We have fun exploring unfamiliar places together. It's truly a {Love Tour}. Here's a peek when we visited Morehouse College during their Founder's Day Celebration. They hosted a concert featuring Avery Sunshine & Eric Benet.
