    used to keep all sorts of left-over vegetables and scraps and freeze them. After the holidays--be it Independence Day or Thanksgiving or whenever--she'd make wonderful soups out of the leftovers. It sounds gross, but the results were amazing.

      one of my not so good memories...

      Every year on the way home from visiting my grandmother at Easter (it was usually Tues. or Wed.) my father would inevitably lean back from the steering wheel and say

      "Well Wanda, we've  eaten an awful lot over the last few days. It's time for a big pot of soup when we get home, don't you think?"

      And of course she always nodded and said "Yes Al, that's a good idea."

      Meanwhile the entire week before she collected leftover vegetables (the canned variety) in the back of the refrigerator.  The next day she would throw all those vegetables in a pot with water and simmer it forever.  The mushy canned vegetables turned even more awful. It seemed she served soup to us for dinner for at least another week.

      I suppose today if you made that and wizzed it in the blender you would have a fancy dish. I found it so gross back then that I would do anything to get out of dinner.
