Did you ever make a roast for dinner on a Sunday afternoon and wind up with left over meat and vegetables? I do it all of the time. I guess it's the Italian in me that always wants to make sure I have enough food just in case! I also like to call this my "Everything but the kitchen sink" soup since I use up whatever I have laying around in the fridge. If you don't have leftovers, you can use frozen vegetables and go to your local deli counter for a thick slice of store made roast beef. It's so flavorful, hearty and comforting, especially on a cold, rainy day.
