What an easy soup to make! It really hits the spot on a cold chilly day. I really love to make a huge pot of soup and freeze it in individual containers. I like to have lots of soups on hand in the freezer during the colder months.

Sure beats having to cook all day and it's perfect when your feeling a little down and out.

This soup is full of delicious beef and beans, what a great combination. I really like to add barley instead of orzo sometimes. I love barley soup and it gives it a thicker consistency.

Grandma used to make this soup when I was a child and loaded it up with oyster crackers. Oh the fond memories I have of that soup! Now I make it all the time.
