    1/2 cup slices Carrots, cooked
    1/2 cup Beans, black

This soup is one that just about everyone has tried at one point or another. It is made up from whatever you have left over in the refridgerator and any othre ingredients you might want to try. Needless to say, the soup will be different just about every time you make it. I remember when I was in the military, we had what was called "Chef's Choice Soup" which really means that whatever is left over each day goes in the pot an becomes soup for the next day. Day after day when we would go to the chow hall, it was obvious what had been on the tray the day before.

Knowing what things tend to make a good soup helps. Things like some sort of meat and meat broth like chicken, beef, lamb even fish. Vegetables like carrots, corn, onion, celery, cabbage, greens, mushrooms and the like. The field is wide open for what you can do.

On this particular occasion, I had some really good chuck roast and gravy left over so I trimmed the roast of fat, cut it into 1/2" cubes and tossed them into the pot. I then put all the othr ingredients in, brought it to a boil and turned the burner off. We're done. serve it up into bowls, add some nice crusty bread on the side and you've got a delicious winter time or rainy day meal.

Be creative and enjoy using your leftovers instead of throwing them away.

Serving Size: Makes about ten one cup servings
