Does anyone have a recipe for "Garbage Can Soup"? No, "recipe" is not the right word. "suggestions and guidelines" might be better.
You start with some soggy wilted salad left over from yesterday's potluck and dump it, dressing and all, into a soup pot. Add other stuff from your collection of orphans in the fridge and pour in enuf broth.
Cook, serve, and collect the compliments.
Anyway, that's about all I can remember. Does anyone have anything to add?
