Pioneer Woman's Hamburger Soup Recipe

Hamburger Soup | The Pioneer WomanThis recipe was GREAT. Despite the time it took to chop everything, it was easy to throw together for the actual cooking part. It helped that I could chop throughout the day as time permitted. It made a ton! The wonderful thing about cooked soup is that it is perfect for freezing. I was able to make two gallon freezer bags (with 4 cups each) in addition to what we ate for dinner that night. Those two bags went into the freezer!

Before I tossed them in to freeze, I wrote the date and directions for reheating on the bags. I also wrote down suggested sides. My goal with these freezer portions is two-fold:
  • Make dinners for myself a snap!
  • Have meals on hand to deliver to others, that don't require being eaten the same day.
In the last 7 days, Brian and I have heard of 4 families that could use a meal. Two families just got more foster kiddos, one welcomed a new baby this past weekend, and the fourth family just needs a break. Looking forward to this new ministry of freezer meals thanks to the inspiration of Roshena over at Grey House Green Door who has blessed us REPEATEDLY with freezer/fridge meals and desserts!
