Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

Uncle Fred's Vegetable and Hamburger Soup

My Uncle Fred G. told me this is how he made a big kettle of vegetable soup.  He was 93 years of age when he shared this with me.    His very simple directions for making his tasty soup are as follows:

Brown about a pound of lean hamburger with about 1/2 cup chopped onion.  Drain, and set aside.

Take equal amounts of whatever vegetables you like-- such as celery, carrots, parsnips, and potatoes Some like to add cabbage, too.  Cut them up to be about 1/2" in size and put them into a kettle. 

Add salt (and pepper, too?) according to how many vegetables you have.  Add enough water to just cover. 

Let them cook for about 45-minutes or until almost soft.  Now, add the browned hamburger.  Fred added, "Sometimes I also add one can of peas and let this mixture cook for another 15 minutes."  Remove from the heat and enjoy.
