Hearty Hamburger Soup

This is one of those recipes you throw together using your own preference for amounts and ingredients. I have not yet learned to appreciate various herbs and seasonings. [wink] I love the simple tastes of food so I rarely use them. You might want to add some to this recipe.
Hearty Hamburger Soup
Brown 1 - 1 ½ lbs. hamburger with chopped onions.
Drain if needed, and add to the following ingredients:
sliced carrots
stalks of celery, sliced
frozen corn
2-3 cans of beef broth
extra water and beef bouillon if desired
a sprinkle of dry, uncooked barley
1 28 ounce can of tomatoes, undrained
simmer in a crock pot or a cast iron Dutch oven
add peas when done so they don't cook overmuch
. . . . . . . . .
various other ingredients could include:
elbow macaroni, cabbage, kidney beans, potatoes, oregano, basil, shredded parmesan, shredded cheddar
