Winter is the perfect time for soup, so I made Beef 'n' Veggie Soup with Mozzarella. It was a quick fix, just browning the beef, adding canned tomatoes and frozen vegetables and seasonings and letting simmer. It came together really quick and the oldest and I enjoyed it. We both agreed that we thought it might almost be better served over rice as a dish with sauce instead of a soup.
There is a lot of variety to choose from in this book, and it wasn't anything too exotic, so it's family - pleasing.
