Freeze Leftovers for Soup

If a leftover food is good for a soup, wrap it, write on it what it is, and freeze it. Some things will need to be chopped fine before use, but add a lot of flavor.

I keep a large freezer container in the freezer and add the leftovers that would make good soup. Hints from Heloise used to tell housewives to put gravy, left over mashed potatoes, veggies, and meats all in there at once. I tried that and it does make a good everything but the kitchen sink soup.

Save all of your leftovers for the whole week in the freezer. Use a large can of cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup combined with one packet of dry onion soup mix and a carton of liquid broth in your slow cooker. Once everything is blended well into a "base," add all of your leftovers to the slow cooker and heat for a couple of hours until all of the flavors come together nicely. In my last yummy batch, I used spinach, corn, leftover soups, cut-up spaghetti and sauce, soy nuggets, and some chunks of steak. Everyone ate it up fast and I didn't have to cook for two whole days! :)

I do this too but make a curry sauce and put it over the mixture. Add a scoop of rice and it makes a wonderful meal. (10/22/2010)
