How many times have we completed a meal and there is less than one serving leftover; not enough to eat for lunch the next day. It seems like a waste of food, but what can you do but throw it out or into the compost bin?
Try keeping a freezer container or bag in the freezer labeled "soup scraps". Place these little bits of leftover food into the container; meat, gravy, vegetables, just about anything. When your container is full, place the leftovers in a pot with some broth. Let it simmer for an hour to merge the flavors, taste and adjust the seasonings. You will be amazed at how good this type of soup can be.
