‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ 🥶


It’s cold in Mississippi — I realize my friends in more northern states would laugh their heads off at our definition of cold, but I’m cold! 🥶

This is one of my FAVORITE soups! I could eat this year-round, but it is particularly wonderful in the winter.❄️

HAMBURGER VEGGIE SOUP 🍲

*1 jar of tomatoes (my mom cans fresh tomatoes from the garden each summer and I receive all of the benefits – for this recipe, I use one jar.)

*1 small package of ground round, browned and the grease drained

*1 pint frozen fresh lima beans (butterbeans – again my mom freezes fresh limas in the summer)

*1 pint frozen fresh corn

*1 Tablespoon sugar (optional)

When my mom makes this, she adds a lot of extras, like okra and hot sauce. She likes it spicy. I like it a little more plain. I brown the ground round hamburger meat in a cast iron skillet and drain any excess grease. On top of the cooked hamburger meat, I pour in the tomatoes and limas and let them cook on the stove for about 20 minutes. The limas should be defrosted and cooked by this point. Usually, I add a little sugar to take away the tartness of the tomatoes. Then I add the frozen corn kernels and cook an additional 10 minutes on the stove.

It is a quick and easy – reasonably healthy – meal. It is also GREAT with a few grilled cheese sandwiches if you are so inclined!

Enjoy and stay warm!
