Soak soup bone in cold water and salt for 30 minutes. Flour meat and brown in oil. Add meat to boiling water and cook uncovered for 10 minutes, skimming residue from top of pot. Simmer meat, uncovered, for 2-3 hours. Add peas and carrots, baby limas and green beans and cook for 30 minutes. Add tomato soup, onions, potatoes and seasonings 1 hour before serving. Add corn 15 minutes before serving. Note: We don't like lima beans and leave them out. This soup is so full of veggies that it doesn't matter if you use the limas or not.

This sounds delicious, Robin! It's very similar to what I used to do when all my boys were at home. I used canned tomatoes and no limas. I don't even know anyone who likes limas, lol It's also good for getting rid of leftovers.
My eldest son told me something he's been doing which I haven tried yet. He puts a small can of mushroom pieces and a small amount of instant mashed potato flakes into the pot with all the other goodies. (10/30/2007)
This is a favorite of ours (homemade chicken noodle soup too) No limas here either. Also we don't put canned tomato soup, we use tomato juice and not creamed corn but regular can of corn. What does creamed corn do for it?
