Thanks for your ideas for soup. It is my favorite food in the winter. Yesterday I came in from being out of town and found some stew meat and oxtail bones in the freezer. Boiled that for 3 hours in beef broth and then added onions, head of cabbage, fresh okra, potatoes, barley and peas. Put the soup into 12 containers in the deep freeze and I have 12 meals ahead of me. I love to leave the tomatoes out. (although sometimes a squeeze of lemon does the same thing for flavoring)
