Het Sue,

If you like meat soups, here is a great one.

Bacon Lettuce Tomato Soup!

Soup Recipe
If you love bacon lettuce and tomato sandwiches, well then, you'll absolutely love Bacon Lettuce Tomato Soup! Not only is it good for you, but it brings a smile to everyone's face when they try it. Kids love it, Grampas love it. And so will you.

What you'll need:
- 1/4 lb. of bacon
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 10 oz. can stewed tomatoes, chopped
- 12 oz. can vegetable juice
- 1 cup beef stock
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. oregano
- Shredded lettuce (I like using romaine)

What to do:

Brown the bacon and remove from the pan, cool and crumble.

Sauté the onion and celery in 2 Tbsp. of bacon fat until tender.

Mix in the tomatoes, vegetable juice, beef stock, sugar, oregano and the crumbled bacon. At this point, your mixture should be the consistency of a white sauce. If it is too thin, just add a Tbsp. or two of flour mixed with water until you get the right consistency.

Simmer for 30 minutes.

Serve up into your favorite soup bowls and sprinkle with the shredded lettuce.

This delicious Bacon Lettuce Tomato Soup recipe makes about 1 quart of soup.

Mandarin Hot and Sour Soup
 
      8 c  Soup stock, 6-8 cups
    1/4 lb Pork, lean
    1/2 ea Square bean curd (optional)
    1/4 c  Shredded bamboo shoot
      3 ea Dried black mushrooms 2-3*
      2 T  Sliced can button mushrooms
      4 ea Dried wood ears (optional)*
      2 ea Stalks green onion, chopped
      1 ea Slice cooked ham, shredded**
      4 T  Vinegar
      1 t  Chili Oil (optional)
    1/4    Hite pepper
    3/4 t  Salt
    1/2 t  Sesame oil
    1/2 t  Sugar
      1 T  Soy sauce
      2 ea Eggs lightly beaten
      3 T  Cornstarch in 3 T water
 
  * Soaked and shredded.
  ** Optional

  Bring soup stock to a boil, add shredded pork, black mushrooms and wood ears. Cook 2-3 minutes. Add remainder of ingredients and seasonings (except cornstarch, eggs, and green onion) reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Thicken with cornstarch and turn off heat.

  Slowly pour in beaten eggs in a thin stream while stirring. Serve immediately. Garnish with green onion.

  If soup is to be prepared ahead of time, do not add cornstarch and eggs until serving time. Otherwise the egg will be overcooked and spoil the appearance. Soup should be quite hot and sour. Adjust the hotness with varying amount of white pepper and the sourness with different amounts of vinegar.
 
 Makes 4 Servings

 With the cold weather, there's nothing like a hot bowl of great soup.
 
     Chicken and Mushroom Soup

 
    1/2 lb Boneless Chicken Breast
      2 c  Chicken Stock
      1 c  Fresh Mushrooms, quartered
      4 tb Sesame Oil
      2 tb Sherry
      2 tb Fresh Parsley, chopped
 
Thinly slice the chicken breast meat.

Bring the chicken stock to a rolling boil and add the chicken and mushrooms.

When the soup starts to boil again and all of the ingredients float to the top, remove from the heat. Add the sesame oil and sherry and taste for seasoning.

Add salt and pepper if necessary. Serve in individual soup bowls and sprinkle the parsley on top.

Serves 2
