       3 qt Water
       3    Bay leaves
            Poultry seasoning as
            Desired
            Herbs as desired
       2    Garlic cloves, minced OR
       1 ts Minced garlic (bottled)
       2 lg Onions, coarsely chopped
       2    Celery stalks, in chunks
       3 lb Meat (chicken, turkey,
            - rabbit, whatever
            Black peppercorns, a few
            SOUP
            Noodles or pasta as desired
       3    Carrots, diced
       2    Celery stalks, diced
       1    Spanish onion, diced
       1 c  Green beans, frozen
       1 c  Potatoes, cubed
       1 c  Mushrooms, sliced
            Salt & pepper as desired
            Tobasco sauce as desired
  
   Put water in large stock pot and add meat.  Add remaining ingredients.
   Bring to boil and if you have it put a diffuser under pot and keep the heat
   just below a simmer.  This is like a crockpot, but my crockpot is too
   small. <g>  Continue cooking for 4 to 8 hours. Remove meat and allow to
   cool.  Strain Stock and chill if necessary to remove any fat. After
   removing fat, return to pot.  Strip meat from bone and skin. Bring to a
   boil and add Soup vegetables and pasta to the strained stock. Reduce to a
   simmer and cook til vegetables are done. Add meat and thicken if desired.
   Serve with fresh rolls or bread.
