“I made a pot of Mom's Hamburger Soup this afternoon which is really smelling and tasting good. And I just emailed my daughter and asked her to bring home some crusty rolls from Panera's to have with it. This is a thick and hearty soup -- perfect for dunking the bread. It's cold outside, so this will be great for supper tonight. Since it's one of those recipes that isn't written down, I decided to post it while everything is fresh on my mind. Mom always used spaghetti, but I think it gets too mushy when the soup is warmed up for the 2nd or 3rd time. And she didn't use the steak seasoning, but to me it seems to lift the taste of the meat and tomatoes.”
