    1       lb           Ground beef
    1       c            Chopped onion
      1/2   c            Chopped celery
    1       tb           Butter or margarine
    3       c            Tomatoes

   Saute beef, onion and celery in melted butter until
   meat is browned. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring
   to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20
   minutes. Remove bay leaf. Makes 2 quarts of hearty
   soup. My copy, circa 1978 was given to me by Mrs.
   Denise Funnell, who had a copy of a Plattsburgh, NY
   newspaper. It was originally submitted in the paper by
   Mrs. Barry Wilson.
