Menu Monday-Carols Soup Recipe

 Welcome to my regular feature Menu Monday. 

The day I share my plans for meals served  on the Rustic Dinner Plate.  

 Today as part of On The Road with Authors Danny and Wanda Pelfry ...

 I have a special treat a yummy Soup and Cornbread Recipe just for my readers because this Soup is served at a fun Eatery in Adairsville, Georgia. 

Tomorrow I will share a bit about Adairsville but for today here's the recipe and my weeks menu.

Worchestershire Sauce 3 tbsp

Salt and Pepper to tasten 

Instant Mashed Potatoes 1/2 cup

Cover bottom of dutch oven with cooking spray or olive oil. lightly brown Onions. Add 3 cups water and Broth from Roast or can.  If you do not have Broth, add 1 more cup of water and Beef  cube.

 Add Vegetables. 

This is a good time to use any leftover cooked Vegetables in refrigerator, as long as they are not too leftover.  Cook until soft. We southerners do not like undercooked Vegetables!
