Yummy recipe from Chef Peggy

Every now and then I will put a recipe up for something that we enjoy.  I always tweak them to our own family's taste as do most of you, I am sure.  

This recipe was tried for the first time tonight.   Everyone had seconds!   SUCCESS!!   Even took  it over to my friend's house and her 16 year old son loved it!

Tomato Macaroni Soup   (Easy, cheap, and delicious)
1 lb. of ground chuck
1 onion diced
4 cups of beef broth
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
2 (6 oz)  cans tomato paste
½ teaspoon of dried basil
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce - taste it as you add.   It really changes the taste.
½ garlic powder
Salt and pepper
1 ½ cups elbow macaroni, cooked

Put water on for macaroni.
Brown onions and ground chuck.
In large stock pot add beef broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, basil, garlic powder salt and pepper.
Bring to boil.  Then add beef and onions.
When macaroni is cooked, add to pot and simmer 10 minutes.

We had French bread with this to soak up the delicious juices!


A neighbor and good friend of  Mom and Dad in Monticello, In passed away.  He was always so friendly and a very busy man.   He and his wife enjoyed golfing and would golf with Dad.  This is from the written obituary from the funeral home:     

John had lived in the Monticello community since 1993 coming from Kokomo, Indiana. He had worked at Continental Steel in Kokomo, Indiana for over 24 years and enjoyed farming most of his life. John was an avid outdoorsman, hunter, and golfer. He was a NASCAR fan and enjoyed living and boating on Lake Shafer and spending time with his dog Dutch. John was a member of the Friendship Baptist Church of Speedwell, Tennessee and the local Coonhunters Club here in the Monticello area. He raised and trained hound dogs

How lucky we have been to have such wonderful people in our life!   Thank you for your friendship, John!

Love to all - Peggy
