Caution! All them boxed veggies are cooked after you take them out the box!

The Way to Go:

Put a large, deep pot, 12 inches high by 9 inches round, on your favorite burner.

*Good Advice Sash, Run off the spouse at this point, so they not in the way, cause you going to be busy!

Into the Pot chunk them bacon grease and light them fire. Place them onions in that grease and stir. Stir until amost soft, then put in those peeled, chopped up garlic toes, and stir some more. When that garlick is browned and smelling oh so Good, add them celery stalks you worked so hard to clean and cut up, stir some more. Now draw about 2 quarts water from them well, spring water is ok, and add about 1 quart to them pots. Stir and Stir some more! When the water is smoking about to boil, youall add them peeled tomatoes that you cut up into quarters, and stir! You add them bell peppers, OHM! Looking some good, next you dump them soup bones with some meat still on them (Youall will be tempted to gnaw on them bones first, but don't) and stir some more. Stir until a boil and let them boil out the marrow of them bones, boil some more until them meat leaves them bones, now you can gnaw on them bones to your hearts content, then take them bones out and give them to the dog, cause you're through with them. Next add them frozen soup mix bags innards into them pots, not the BAG you Red Nek! Save them for them beer cans you throw into other peoples ditches, so's they won't have to stoop so much to clean the yard. And stir, always stir. Add enough water to cover what you got in the pot, and then add some more, stir. Now don't get carried away with them water, still gots lots to put in there Sash. Now then, add for flavor add them bouillon cubes for flavor, this is real important, Stir. Well now, you can add them frozen box veggies to the water in them pots,slowly one at a time, not the paper, you fool, it makes them soup too stiff and kills them taste too! Stir, Stir, Stir some more. Save them green onions for last, as them flavor goes quickly, y'know. Cook for several hours, after it boils and stir frequently, yes more of that, at last, place them parsley just before you turn off them stove, and both of you rest for hour. Now, at last, Laddle out about a quart of soup and put it in a safe place cause them relatives won't leave you much, Remember who did all the work and you need to hid yourn.

Remember that them soup tastes good today but tomorrow she is great!
For sure !

Bon Appetite, Sash!
