  1. I put mini meatballs in my “pantry soup” as I’m not a great fan of ground meat and this way I can easily control how much I eat of it. 😀 Along with what your recipe called for I also add carrots, garlic (what recipe can’t use garlic? Lol), sometimes shredded spinach or even cabbage, tomato soup and egg noodles or pasta. It is a great and easy soup! Just use whatever is on hand.

    I love the views of and from your parents house.
    Sorry for your loss. I pray that the service was a real celebration of your uncles life.

    1. Thank you Julie–good idea with the meatballs. 🙂 Thank you for the comment, and yes, (I should have mentioned in the post!) it was a sweet time to remember my Uncle and reconnect with so many old friends and family. Much aloha and happy Easter weekend–

  2. I’m sorry about your loss, Monica! Prayers for all the family affected by this event.
    Yes, I could smell the aroma of the soup coming from your mom’s kitchen! I’m going to try that recipe soon. Looks easy and yummy!
    I love soup, especially those loaded with vegetables. Love, love my veggies in soups!
    I’d like to sit on those beautiful glidders out in the porch staring at the harbor.
    Beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you Nidia! So sweet of you. Those gliders are nice, but boy–it was chilly there! haha. 🙂 Much aloha to you-

  3. First of all, I would have a hard time leaving those rockers with a view of the harbor. Secondly, my mom makes something very similar- but with stew meat and V-8 juice. I think I’ll try it with ground beef and canned soup because we always have those on hand. Delicious! Thanks. BTW- on the menu this week are your famous fish taco ( they’ve become my 7yo favorite) and one pot pasta. Keep the recipes coming, I appreciate them!

    1. Oh now I’m curious about your mom’s recipe…I have some stew meat in my freezer right now! 🙂 Sounds amazing actually. (I love V8 too) Thanks so much for letting me know your family enjoys my recipes–that means so much!! XO

  4. I make soup just like this on a regular basis as we have a big family of 6 to feed. I often prep it in the crockpot in the morning and leave it to cook all day so it’s good to go when we all get home after school/work! I stop and pick up fresh bread rolls and everyone loves soup day 😊
    Only thing I like to add sometimes is a bit of spice – chilli or tobasco sauce to season with maybe a dash of lime or lemon juice for a Mexican flavour too… yummy 😉

    1. Sounds great Nicky–Nothing like walking in to smell food all ready in the crock pot! 🙂 With fresh bread rolls all the better! Much aloha–
