I keep the coffee jars that are glass, or any other jar, and put the tomato soup mixes in them and the right amount of water. I shake it up and put it in the fridge. This way it is ready for anyone to just shake and pour, and they have a nice cup of soup when they get it out of the microwave.
Sometimes I put a slice of bread on top of the soup and then a piece of cheese. It is good together but this makes it boil over the top of the mug. It reminds me of onion soup at a restaraunt we used to go to back when we had extra money.
Another note: Don't drop your playstation 3 controller in the tomato soup. The tomato soup will be fine, but the controller will not. :)
Cook meat cut or crumpled in a pot or frying pan. Remove grease. Add onion and cook until clear. Add broth and veggies. When hot, add rice or spaghetti noodles. Simmer all in a pot add any spices you like. If you like a thick soup add a little instant mashed potato flakes. Makes a large amount that you can feed a crowd or freeze. The amounts can be whatever you have on hand. Have fun with it.

I've tossed in leftover corn, green beans, assorted cooked veggies. You can thicken this with a little corn starch or flour slurry. It's very forgiving, and only takes a moment to turn assorted leftovers into something hearty and satisfying
