Soups are a great way to use up small amounts of meat and left over veggies. Fresh herbs that are starting to wilt can often be salvaged in these dishes. To boost the protein, which helps fill everyone up, without expensive meat, add a can of beans. They provide great fiber, they're lowfat, unlike meat, and they can be found for so little money.

We have been doing this for years!! We call it refrigerator soup, all the left-overs from all week was Saturday night soup!!
Place a freezable container in freezer and after dinner when you only have a small amount of veggies left, don't throw them away put them in the container in the freezer. when you have enough make veggie soup. Very cheap and great leftover saver.
