Recipe: Red Lantern Soup

I've been a bad blogger lately...behind in my blog posting, behind in my blog reading! I've fallen behind in these things due to a few projects I'm trying to wrap up. At this point, I'm wondering if I'll even be able to finish making our Christmas cards!

So I thought today I'd post a great time-saving soup recipe which I've made for many years now, and even a couple of times in the last month. I throw all the ingredients in the crock pot and let it simmer all day. This is the kind of soup that gets even better after a few hour in the crock pot. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of it! The recipe was given to me by a family member who said that it came from a bed and breakfast.

Red Lantern Soup

* 1 pound ground beef
* 1 regular sized can of whole tomatoes (I used the diced tomatoes with spices)
* 1 can tomato soup (I can't stand tomato soup, but you don't even know it's in there!)
* 1 regular sized can Veg-All veggies (undrained)
* 2 cups water
* 1 dry packet Lipton Onion Soup
* dash of sugar

Brown the ground beef. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer. Freezes well.

(I just brown the ground beef then put everything in the crock pot, turn it on low, and forget about it until dinner. Add a loaf of bread and a salad, and you have a great meal for a cold evening.)

Seriously, the soup sounds good, I cut and pasted the recipe and saved it on my laptop...TFS!
