My soups are always a surprise to me, never to be replicated, and I too store bits and pieces of veggies in the freezer.

We make garbage soup here. All of the little bits of leftover meats, veggies,etc. are layered in a freezer box until it is full, then it is the beginning of a fantastic soup.

I had a stone soup party one time. I furnished the stone and the soup pot, and everyone brought something to put in the soup.

Kids here also make Stone Soup, after reading the book in school. It's quite the event! I remember the book being read on Captain Kangaroo when I was a kid.

The kids named it. It just kinda stuck. It actually works well.

Love that story. A lot of times I simply open the fridge and use whatever is there for soup.
