I was lazy today -
One 8-qt. stockpot - one beef soup bone from the freezer - washed - place in pot.
Cleaned and sliced carrots; added to pot.
Cleaned and sliced celery and chopped fresh celery leaves; added to pot.
Diced small onion; added to pot.
Fresh ground black pepper; added to pot.
7 beef bouillon cubes; added to pot.
Cover with cold water; simmer; skim.
One bottle tomato juice (quart + size); added to pot.
Add salt to taste.
Add fresh chopped parsley.
Diced potatoes: added to pot.
When potatoes were just about done; frozen peas - added to pot.
When broth returned to simmer - added 3/4 c. couscous. Turned off heat. Covered for 5 minutes -
soup was done!
Ladel into soup bowls - pass the bread - enjoy!
make your own -
floured tortilla shell; lightly buttered; spread a bit of canned pie filling; roll and microwave until hot - instant (imitation) pie
or - leave off the pie filling and just sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar; roll and microwave until hot -
