Grandma's American Hamburger Soup

This is my mother's hamburger soup recipe, so she deserves full credit (although I tweaked ingredient amounts a tad bit). I'm going to get strait to the process, because it bugs the living crud out of me when fellow bloggers post recipes and I have to scroll and scroll through several pictures and waaaay too many words to find instructions. So, without further ado...and yes, it's ado, not adieu. Adieu is French for good-bye and I am not ready to say good-bye... yet. I'm stating without further fuss or excitement. (sigh) 

American Hamburger Soup

2 pounds lean ground beef
2 cups cubed potatoes
3 medium carrots, sliced
2 Tablespoons minced parsley (optional)
1 cup celery, sliced
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 quarts canned tomatoes
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic button, chopped
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 quarts water
4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
dash of Allspice
 1/4 cup rice (optional)

Put hamburger into a large pot and cook until it barely loses its color. Do not brown. Drain off fat. Add all other ingredients together with meat and bring to boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer several hours, until vegetables are tender.

DeeAnn you are too funny. I love reading your blogs. You are way too talented not to be writing books.
