Bone Soup

I pulled a beef roast bone out of the freezer and made soup. I manage to get it away from Wolfman J last Christmas before he devoured the meat on it. Then I stuck it in the black hole that is called a freezer. I have several areas/things that are a black hole. Come to think of it, my entire house is a black hole.

Beef and Vegetable Soup

Left-over beef bone, preferable with some meat on it
12 c. water
1 T. dried minced onion
1 t. minced garlic
10 beef bullion cubes
1/2 t. basil
1 t. parsley flakes
1 can stewed tomatoes
1/2 c. dehydrated carrots
1 can green beans
1 can corn
2 cans diced potatoes
6 oz. homestyle noodles

Place cooked beef bone, water and onion in a large pot. Bring to boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer until meat falls off the bone, about one hour. Add seasonings and vegetables. Bring to boil and add noodles. Cook until noodles are tender, according to package directions. Salt to taste.

Variation: Replace potatoes or noodles with barley, about 1 cup. Use whatever vegetables you have on hand: canned, dehydrated, frozen or fresh.
