Hamburger Soup
I couldn’t wait to tell Grumpy what we were having for dinner the night I made hamburger soup.  🙂

If you are one of my Facebook Followers, you probably know the story about how when I ask Grumpy what he is making for dinner….and I get the response “hotdog soup”. That is his reply no matter how much I wished he would help out and at least come up with an idea for dinner.

Needless to say, I received pure pleasure when Grumpy called me to find out what was on the dinner table that night, and my response was “hamburger soup”.  He thought I was joking, little did he know just how serious I was! Hamburger Soup
