"How about some measurements on the celery, onions and carrots? Ihave no idea how big medium is and celery ribs are different sizes. Weight would be good. But use a tape measure if you can't use or read a scale."
"It was delicious!"
"Very good! My husband and 1-year-old daughter love it!"
"Excellent! I didn't have beef consume so I added 2 packets of French onion soup with 4 cups water. I also added a package of tortillini to stretch it and fresh tomatoes instead of canned. Did not need to have the seasoning corrected. It was perfectly spiced!"
"This was a a pretty good soup. No complaint from the family. It was really easy to make. I used ground turkey instead of beef and added some frozen peas and a zuchini I had on hand. I would make this again."
