Local Soup Supper

I made a lovely soup yesterday for supper and served it with homemade bread. Tonight I served it again with a little tweaking. YUM.

Day One:

2 Quarts canned tomatoes, pureed (dh's)
1 small onion, minced (dh's)
3 cups cut up potatoes (mine)
3 cups sliced carrots (grandma's)
1 patty pan squash, peeled and seeded, cut up (dh's)
1 green zucchini, large shredded (mine)

and a sprinkling of seasoned salt from the store.

Day Two took the leftovers and added:

Another quart of tomatoes, pureed
1 lb. ground beef (Friend's cow)
1 cup green peppers, cut up (mine)
more onion (dh's)

and a sprinkle of chili powder with a bit more seasoned salt.

Both were really good and I would have added beans to the second night for a bit of a chili taste but we didn't grow any ... this year ;o)

Now if we just had some local cheese to go with it! I can't wait till Alpine cheese is open!
