Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

In a large pot, melt 1 T. butter over medium heat; cook and stir vegetables and beef, until beef is brown. Stir in basil, parsley and bacon. Add broth and potatoes. Bring to a boil, then simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes.
