Soup Weather! :)

It's definitely soup weather these days! :) Last night I was craving some of my moms hamburger soup, so this is what I came up with!

Hamburger Potato Soup
1 lb. ground beef
4 cups hot water
5 beef bouillon cubes
3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil

In a large pan brown beef with onion. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

What are your favorite fall soup recipes?

Baby Projects: Burp Cloths

Over the last few weeks I have slowly been working on sewing a collection of things for Baby. Mainly, burp cloths and rags. :)

First I whipped up some simple flannel and chenille wash cloths. I found the flannel and chenille at JoAnn's on sale. Mine were 8x8. I decided to do a zig zag stitch around the edges because they were too bulky otherwise.
I ended up with a dozen of these, three of each print.
