Fall days are for apple orchards and first soup of the season with cornbread on the side. I dream of a day when I own a soup business...is that crazy?? How do you eat your cornbread? Sweet or unsweet? Or not at all? #soupseason
Nothing better than some homemade beef and vegetable stew to end the day. We've been trying to opt for lighter meals at night and this is a winner. #healthyeats#quinoa#beefvegetablesoup#ourhealthierhome •••••••••••••••••recipe••••••••••• 1 cup of diced beef stew meat.

A rainy day is a good day for a healthy soup! This is the same Beef Vegetable Soup that my mom made growing up. It’s easy, hearty and delicious. Here is how I make it:
2 pounds pastured beef stew meat
1 onion chopped
Beef bone with marrow (optional)
Place in crock pot or stock pot on stove and cover with water. Put crockpot on high or bring to a low simmer in pot. Cook for 4-6 hours or until the meat is tender. This will make a nice stock.
Chop and add: 1 onion, 4 carrots, 1/2 a head of cabbage, 2 large tomatoes, 2 cups green or yellow beans, plenty of oregano, thyme, salt, pepper and garlic.
Cook vegetables to desired tenderness.
Add 1 cup chopped parsley and 2 cups peas. Stir in and let cook for 1-2 minutes. Remove bone before serving. .
Very little fuss and you really do not need to have precise measurements.
