I think with the Fall coming upon us, it calls for an old fashioned Soup recipe..Hamburger Soup...

Makes 18 ladles & freezes well

1 1/2 lb lean ground beef

1 medium onion chopped fine

1 28oz can diced tomatoes

2 cups water

3 cans beef consomme soup

4 carrots, chopped fine

1 bay leaf3 stalks celery, chopped fine

1/2 tsp thyme

1/2 cup pearl barley

parsley, salt & pepper to taste

Brown meat and drain off fat. Add onion and sauté about 3 minutes.
Combine all ingredients in large 5 quart pot or crockpot and simmer for a minimum 2 hours. If you are using a crock pot you can cook it all day.

This is a family favorite in this house. I rarely have any left the next day !! Enjoy !
