Shepherds Pie Soup

Finally I can give my mouth and stomach a break from all that spicy food last week! It's soup Monday yet again, and this week I have a nice and easy one for you guys. This was the most comforting soup I've had in awhile. I mean, what's not to like in this big bowl of potato, beef, corn, peas, and carrots? I believe it is supposed to be raining this afternoon here in Massachusetts, and I think this soup will be just the thing to help you through that rainy Monday funk.
Potatoes and stock in a nice big pot. Meanwhile, brown the beef. After the beef, do the onion and carrot. When the potatoes are tender, process until smooth. Final veggies go right in. The perfect consistency. I love this soup. Make this tonight!
