My family loves to enjoy this thick and hearty bowl of tummy warmin' love. The original recipe comes from the 1970 "Hard Times Cook Book" beef and vegetable soup but has been officially "Mama'fyed" so much that it has become an entirely different dish. I hope your family enjoys this as much as mine does. It is wonderful served with some warm and crusty bread or biscuits or even a pan of warm cornbread. See the options at the bottom of the recipe too for MORE VEGGIES that are great additions. As always, feel free to make this recipe fit your family and their likes and dislikes. It always makes my day when someone tells me that their family/kids will now eat a new food that they would previously not touch after trying one of my recipes. If I can help your family eat healthier I am a happy Mama!
