I remember my aunts talking about a neighbor of theirs. It seemed she was famous for her soup. All of her neighbors, friends and family had eaten it at one time or another and everyone loved it. Anytime good food came up in conversations they talked about her soup.
One day she told one of my aunts what her recipe was. After each meal she put leftovers in a big container in the freezer. When the container got about full, she heated it up, mixed it up and woola, her famous soup.
