Hamburger Soup

Today, I wanted to make a soup in the Crockpot because I knew that I wouldn't be home at dinnertime. I wanted to use hamburger as the base but didn't have a specific recipe in mind. I briefly looked in a couple cookbooks. I couldn't find anything that jumped out at me, so I decided to just wing it. I browned the hamburger with some onions and garlic (who can go wrong with that!) and added that to some veggies from the fridge/freezer and water with beef bouillon cubes in the Crockpot. I wasn't sure how to flavor it, so I looked up my spices in one of my cookbooks. I chose a few that were suggested for soups...and voila! My soup was born. Jeff LOVED this soup! He loved the flavor. The spiciness was just perfect. I thought it was quite tasty myself. Hope you enjoy it, too!

  1. You're a braver cook than me. I rarely branch very far from a recipe.
