Beef Noodle Soup Uses Ramen

Today's the day that I finally clean out my clothing and shoe mess in the closet. Nothing's on the floor, but there are way too many things in there that I don't wear, or need mending. Also, my Halloween and Christmas sweaters are still in need of being put away in storage (a cedar chest). I do have a plan of attack; give-away box, put-away box and a garbage bag for trash. I also need to arm myself with a micro-cloth and my can of Pledge Dust and Allergen spray. Vacuuming will be my grand finish! I hope your day holds more fun and excitement than mine.

Here's a quick and easy soup recipe for today. Please come back tomorrow when I review one of my old cookbooks!

Beef Noodle Soup

1 lb. ground beef
One 46 oz. can of V-8 Juice
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 package (3 oz.) Beef Ramen Noodles
1 pkg (16 oz.) frozen vegetables

In large saucepan, cook beef until browned. Drain; stir in V-8 juice, soup mix, contents of Ramen seasoning packet and mixed vegetables. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 6 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Return to a boil and add noodles. Cook for 3 more minutes or until noodles are tender. Chop fresh green onions on top for garnish and extra flavor. 8 servings.
