Sunday Night Leftover Soup

I know it was 80 degrees today...whatevs. Sit in front of a fan and eat soup!
We came home from a weekend family road trip to a fridge full of multiple teeny portions of leftovers. They made magic in my soup pot and I want to put the list here as reminder to my feeble brain of a fun thing to do with the rotating cast of containers in the fridge.
Feel free to chime in with your fave leftover soup combos or ingredients.
 
  
base flavor:
olive oil
sauteed minced garlic
body:
2 C chicken broth
1 C roasted potato wedges, chunked
1/4 C saag tofu (only rice left)
1/4 C homemade shells and cheese
1/2 C scalloped potatoes
1/2 C snobby joe
fresh veggie flourish:
baby spinach
5 cremini mushrooms, chunked
10 stalks asparagus, chopped
final touch:
1 T miso, (tip: 1. remove pot from heat to retain nutritional integrity of miso 2. ladle a bit of broth into a container and dissolve miso in this before returning mixture to the pot to avoid losing the lump of miso in the soup pot)
