Wow what a great soup! I stood in my kitchen at 7pm with a howling baby and 2 year old determined to take her tricycle around the pond before bed. I had 10 minutes to throw something together.
Base for soup - 1 quart chicken broth
Veggies - 1 chopped onion, 2 chopped carrots, 1 cup frozen corn and 2 cans diced tomatoes
Spice - 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
Meat - 18 meatballs and 2 teaspoons of beef buillion
If I had more veggies in the fridge it would have ended up more a veggie soup but as it was, the above was the best I could come up with since fresh basil was rotting and squash was molding.
Walk away for an hour to walk 2 kids and puppy around the pond. Along the way meet up with neighbors who also have 2 kids roughly the same age as mine and a small well behaved dog. The only thing missing was my husband who was back fixing the kids bathroom fan and painting the walls Buzz Lightyear purple.
Best soup ever!
