Today was the last day of school for my two little girls and that got me thinking.
Most usually reflect on the previous year around New Year’s. However, since it is me, and since I do most things backwards, and since it is the end of the school year, I thought I would do my looking back now.

It has been raining A LOT here lately, which makes my grass very happy. Myself on the other hand, can think of only one thing when it rains…… SOUP!

Either way, I’m fixing it! Here is a great recipe, that happens to be kid approved.
My kids like to call it Hamburger Soup, which is basically a glorified way of saying vegetable soup with ground beef.
You basically just throw a bunch of stuff into a pot and let it simmer. Wait! I guess that is what you generally do with soup. Oh well.
