Back in the day when I was living home with my mama, I had a friend over while my mom was about to cook dinner.When I looked in the fridge there was nothing in the fridge. NOTHING!My mama started pulling stuff out and throwing it in a pot.My friend looked at me like what is she doing throwing all that stuff in there. Ugh!My mama made soup and my friend never stopped talking about it.She would always ask,
Did your mama make some more soup?
Who would have thought some so delicious came from absolutely nothing.
Well, this weekend while cleaning out the fridge I found some food that I wasn’t willing to part with yet. Hubby cooked dinner this week and there was leftover stuffed chicken and diced potatoes from that meal. Also, there were some leftover mashed potatoes and corn on the cob from one of the meals I cooked. I chopped up the chicken, removed the corn from the cob and threw it in the crock pot. Threw in about 1 to 2 cups of water and a big’ole tablespoon of Better than Bouillon flavoring and let it cook on high for about an hour.
Making soups in my house is something I do frequently.One of the reason I make soup often, is so that my husband can take it to work with him in the morning and have it with his muffins/bread and coffee. The Leftover Soup I made from the leftovers in fridge was exactly what my husband is taking with him this week.
Before you toss the leftovers in the fridge, try using it to make some Leftover Soup. If you don’t own a crock pot, toss it in a pot and cook it on simmer for about an hour.
The next thing I did was put the soup in some small storage containers to go.You can use your soup for now or place it in the fridge for future consumption.
Have you made a pot of soup lately?The season is about to change and nothing like a good’ole bowl of soup.
