Peel and slice 1 or 2 lbs. fresh carrots and steam them in another small pot.When the beef is almost tender, add remaining vegetables and parsley. Add beef base water and 2 cans beef broth (or you can use chicken broth). Simmer.
When meat is tender, add the steamed carrots. Salt and pepper to taste.
(You can add instant potatoes if you like a thicker soup.)
This is an easy vegetable soup. Add anything you like in the way of canned or frozen vegetables. I hope you'll enjoy this. Don't be afraid to improve on it with your own favorite flavors. Please share some with someone that can use a hug and warm meal.

Using a crock pot, cook a chuck roast in your usual way, separate the meat and liquids into portions for soup starters and freeze. I freeze mine into 4 portions but it depends on how much meat you like in your soup.
This recipe uses things I usually have on hand at home. It is so wonderful to just watch this recipe come together, let alone to enjoy serving it!

Brown ground beef and crumble into small pieces --drain and add next three ingredients.
Bring to a boil and then add cheese gradually, stirring constantly.
Serves 4 - 6.
Is better if made day before serving except for adding cheese so it will not burn.
