Warm-up with this Filling Vegetable Beef Soup
We make soups as a meal often at our house. Hearty soups like this Vegetable Beef Soup make a great meal because they are filling and can be adjusted for many tastes. With vegetable soups, you can add your favorite vegetables to come up with endless combinations and flavors.
I suppose many folks think that soups are more of a winter food for when it’s cold. We live in Florida, its always warm. We enjoy soups year round. Soups make a great meal and they are usually fast to prepare (a great bonus for busy moms).
