Food Friday: Delicious Refrigerator Soup

There were more than usual small containers of leftovers in the refrigerator one morning lately so I pulled them all out of the refrigerator, tossed them into a large soup pot and, after chopping up three onions that I found in separate containers, I turned on the heat, brought the soup to a boil, then let simmer until the onions were mostly cooked.  It is a delicious soup.  Sadly, not to be duplicated....My mother was truly the master at making refrigerator soup.  Those soups always tasted good.  Sometimes mine have not been as tasty.  This one was BUT  Dear One had a bit of problem with it, though he did try.

These were the ingredients I used:

3 partial onions, chopped
1 bunch dried out scallions
2 cups homemade baked beans
1 1/2 cups homemade macaroni and cheese
2 cups roasted Brussels sprouts and cauliflower
2 cups sautéed onions and spinach
1 quart pork broth
1 quart chicken broth
2 -3 Tablespoons French onion dip made with sour cream and French's Onion Soup mix
2 Tablespoons Harvest Blend Seasoning...basically dried vegetables and herbs
2 1/2 Tablespoons dried red bell pepper flakes
Ragu spaghetti sauce

Chopped the onions finer then began cooking them in the two broths and broths.  After about 2 minutes, just added everything except the dip and Ragu sauce and brought everything up to a boil then simmered until the raw onions were softened...well, 15 minutes, then an additional 6 minutes because the onions were not yet soft.
