Stretching Out Leftover Soup

There are many times in which I've made a pot of soup, and gotten down to the point where there isn't enough left for a full blown meal, but tossing it, or feeding to the goats seems wasteful.  Here's my favorite tip for stretching that soup for one last meal.  Make a batch of rice, or barley.  Use a 2 to 1 ratio of water to grain, and cook it up separately from your soup.  Meanwhile, heat your soup.  When the rice/barley is cooked, serve it in a bowl, with a ladle of soup over it, and you've got a great winter warmer-upper, hot soup, hot rice, and hopefully, satisfied bellies in your household!
