Since winter is on it's way, I thought I'd submit one of our favorite soup recipes. This has been in our family since the late 1940's when my dad worked in a logging camp. It was always called "Goop" in our family. This is a very versitle recipe. Some options are: add minced garlic when browning hamb., use ground turkey, add chili powder and it will taste like chili, etc. Make it your own! Since we are empty nesters I cut the recipe in half and even then I end up freezing enough for another meal.
