Autumn Soup

We have one of those self-serve frozen yogurt places just around the corner.
It's within walking distance, which makes you feel even less guilty.

I "liked" them on FB, which means I get weekly updates of the available flavors.

You walk in, go to the back of the store, there they have an assortment of cup sizes. Then you come into contact with about 8 different fro-yo machines. Serve yourself as much or as little as you want.
Oh-I should add, there are usually a couple of sorbet flavors as well.

Then you head over to the topping bars.
Yes, multiple.
All the typical ice cream toppings, plus tons of candies, cookies, cheesecake pieces, cookie dough
Oh my mind is spinning!
Next bar is all the fruits...mmmm
Then a little drawer set with all the crushed nuts.
Then there are sauces. Chocolate, white chocolate, caramel, peanut butter.

Oh the temptation!

Good thing I just ate a bowl of this soup, or I would be heading down there now.

1 LB ground beef
2 Small potato (cut to 1 inch dice)
½ Cup celery (sliced)
1 Small onion (diced)
1 Med tomato (diced)
