Souper Soup/Goolash

My mom makes this "kitchen sink" type soup often. It's a great way to use ingredients in your pantry and yields a very hearty and satisfying meal. Pair with a green salad and you have a nice wintertime meal--with plenty of leftovers that are even better on the second day. Thanks mom! Continue for recipe.

Souper Soup

1 lb. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
1.5 celery stalks, chopped
2-3 carrots, chopped
2-3 potatoes, chopped
1 can pinto or red beans (I usually leave this out)
1 can green beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 qt. water
3-5 beef bouillon cubes
1-1.5 cup noodles (I like spiral noodles)
salt and pepper to taste

Brown meat, onion, garlic, and celery together. Drain. Add rest of ingredients, except noodles. Cover and simmer until potatoes are nearly soft -- about one hour. Add noodles and cook until done -- approxiumately 20 more minutes. Even better on day two!
