Cream of Green Bean Casserole Soup

If we pull out that ole college cookbook again, we’ll find another well-worn page with the Cream Soup recipe. The reason this was such a favorite was because it had four variations listed that were each basically: add 2 cups {insert vegetable} and 1 tsp {insert seasonings}. This was probably one of the first recipes that encouraged me to just make it up as I went along. So today, I decided it was cold enough outside for soup and I was getting closer to the one-week deadline with no exciting ideas for a leftover Green Bean Casserole. The result: Cream of Green Bean Casserole Soup. Jason won’t eat it, so I will freeze the extra in small containers for some more warm lunches.
