Like good soup, today’s post has a bit of this and a bit of that.
Today is Giving Tuesday. Razoo, the non-profit company we use to process donations is having a Giving Tuesday special event (12:01 am to 11:59 pm EST). The groups that raise the most will get monetary prizes and they will give 12 prizes of $375 to randomly chosen donors! If you are thinking about sending us a year-end gift, today is a great day. US donations are tax-deductible, and all donations are greatly appreciated!

And just, well, because … here’s a recipe for one of our soup favorites:
Cheeseburger Broccoli Chowder
1 lb. ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
2 cans cheddar or Nacho cheese soup
2 soup cans milk
2 tsp Worchestershire sauce
2 cups chopped broccoli
2-4 potatoes, peeled and diced (I add corn as well)
In a large saucepan, cook beef with onion and green pepper until the beef is browned and the vegetables are tender; drain. Stir in soup, milk, and Worcestershire sauce. Add broccoli and potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. (If you don’t like canned soup, any cheese base soup would do.)
