Grandma and Grandpa’s house was my favorite place to be when I wasn’t at home. There was always so much to do there, and they spoiled us to the bone. There really wasn’t a dull moment. They never put a limit on how many of us grand kids could be there at once either, so it was usually something of a kid party on the weekends and all throughout the summer. Grandpa and Grandma both worked very hard their entire lives just so that they could enjoy this period of retirement the way that they wanted to.
Because neither of them worked anymore, they shared the duties around the house. When there was a big group of us there, Grandpa liked to make his famous hamburger soup.
It was just like this recipe from Spend with Pennies. He would make a huge pot of this in what seemed like just a few minutes. With a nice homemade bread to soak up the juices, we always filled right up on this dish.
Now I make it for my own kids, and they love it just the same.
