About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.

  1. Yum! Sounds like a vegetable beef soup I make…well, minus the tomatoes…I hate cooked tomatoes.

    • I love tomatoes in my soup. I like to use crushed, though, so the flavor isn’t overwhelming. This recipe takes me back to Daddy cooking soup for me. Happy memories. 🙂

      • How sweet that your dad cooked it for you…my mom always told me what I made wasn’t really vegetable soup since I didn’t put tomatoes in it…haha…soup/ vegetables=vegetable soup, right?
