I make vegetable soup like my grandma always did, and a giant pot will feed us for the weekend.

I cut up stew meat with scissors, because we have little ones, and to remove the extra fat. I brown that in some oil, and then add stock. I chop onions and garlic, and throw in diced tomatoes also. I let that boil while I chop potatoes, and throw them in with more water before adding all the cans of vegetables I can find. It boils all day, and isn’t ready until dinnertime!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

  1. vegetable soul? That might be a possibility. Good for the body, and soothing to the soul, in this frigid weather!
    I always add V8, like my mama. :)
    Yours looks really good.
