Soup's On

We originally had lots of plans today including a basketball game of Scoop's, some antiquing for me, and a craft project with Doodle in the evening.  Plans kinda changed last night when Scoop started puking.  Yuck, yuck, yuck.  Doodle came home from a sleep over complaining of a sore throat and is now running a slight fever.  Flu season stinks! 

Since neither one of them has a big appetite, I decided to whip up a pot of vegetable beef soup.  It is on the stove simmering as we speak and it smells delish! 

Stacy's Favorite Vegetable Beef Soup


  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large stew pot. Add the stew meat and thoroughly brown on all sides. Add red wine and deglaze pot, stirring in all the brown bits on the bottom until the wine is reduced by at least 1/2. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic and saute for about 5 minutes longer.
  2. Dump in all the other ingredients and stir well.
  3. Bring to almost a boil, then cover and reduce the heat to a simmer. Let simmer (almost bubbling), covered with the lid slightly ajar, 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until all vegetables are tender.
  4. Add more salt and pepper to taste, if desired, and discard the bay leaf.
