Its terribly rainy out around here, the dark clouds sure put me in a mood. So I decided to cook one of my favorite comfort foods. Vegetable and Beef soup. I used a beef stew meat that was already cut up into small chunks, added tomato paste for the base and used loads of onions, celery and pretty red, yellow and orange bellpeppers. I had tiny baby lima beans and corn in the fridge, added some green beans and fresh zucchini all chopped up, the last thing to go in was sliced mushrooms. I enjoyed my bowl of soup with buttery tasting club crackers. It really hit the spot.
