Hamburger Soup

Baby it’s cold outside… yes snow is in the air… well at least this past weekend there were mini blizzards here, for one night. No the snow didn’t stay, but the idea to warm up with some home made soup stuck with me! I’m bringing you a classic that’s delicious, and since it had ground beef, it’s perfect for dinner! Add a side salad and a loaf of crusty bread and you have a complete meal for you and your family. Plus you can separate leftovers and freeze them for later, or have it for lunch the next day!

My whole family enjoyed this amazingly simple and savoury soup. I even sent it the next day on my kids lunches, and their thermoses were empty when they got home! I love sending soup on their lunches during the winter months… makes me feel like I’m helping them keep warm before heading out to play in the cold winter air during recess!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m really starting to get my swing back from the recent busyness of life lately and I’m always appreciative that you came in and stopped by today to share with me! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate! I can’t wait to chat again soon!

Cheers! Xo

    1. I’m a proponent that good for doesn’t always have to be difficult! Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time cooking etc… But sometimes a quick prep and let simmer meal is exactly what’s needed at home… And I prefer doing this then buying prepared/pee packaged meals IF I can avoid it.
