happy birthday, papa

Today is my Grandfather's birthday.  To be exact, it's his 85th birthday.

I couldn't actually visit him today but plan to see him tomorrow.  I thought I'd make him and my grandmother (who also just celebrated a birthday) some Vegetable Beef soup.  Let's get started...

First, I chopped half of an onion.

Browned 1 pound of hamburger with the onion and drained.

Returned the hamburger to the pot and added some veggies and beef stock.

Don't forget the seasonings!

Simmer, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender.

Taste periodically, adding salt, pepper and a dash of sugar to taste.

This yummy soup is just as good the next day and freezes really well.  I made it with love and hope my grandparents enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Papa!

Is that a slotted spoon?
