Notes

Beef and vegetables - I love ham hocks and 15 beans soup. I love potato soup. I also love beef stew, meatball soup and chicken soup, but sometimes I just want something different and a chance to play with my food so I went to my kitchen, tossed the fridge and pantry and came up with this soup on a cool rainy spring day when soup just seemed to fit the mood. Serve it with hot crusty garlic bread to dip into the broth. Use vegetable broth and leave out the meat for a vegetarian soup. Fast and easy after work meal.
