Hot leftover "stoup" à lá Chef!

What a better way to fight a chilly night with a good hot soup. The midday temperatures reached up to whooping 52 °F (11 °C).
With clear blue sky, bright sunshine and a brisk north-easterly wind it resembled more an early day in March on the East Coast than a day in the Californian desert.
After a long walk with Molly Hubby took over in the cooking department.
The "Chef" pondering...
"Let's see what we have here", he mumbled and raided the refrigerator. Out came all the leftovers, bacon, onion, potatoes, cooked vegetables and a cold, grilled pork chop.

He chopped and brazed and tasted.
The final product was a delicious and warming "stoup" (soup/stew).
a variation of various ingredients...

Now all blinds are down, a hot cocoa in place and it is time for a good novel.


What's was in it:
onion, minced
bacon, cubed
green and yellow squash, sliced
broccoli, cooked, flowers,
carrots, cooked, sliced
potatoes, cooked, cubed
pork chop, grilled, cold, cubed
instant beef broth
sour cream
salt, pepper

Sauté onion and bacon, add everything into a casserole and fill up with broth. Simmer until warm, add a clad of sour cream and season with salt and pepper.
