I snipped a bunch out of your missive but the thing about wanting soup and only having one big pot caught my eye and I was thinking what about preparing your concentrated soup stock (maybe one meat and one veggie?) and freezing it and using the frozen soup containers as your "ice" in your cooler?  Then you could take out portions of it and put in the pot and add your parsnips, meat, or whatever.  Depending on how much water you put in your stock would make the difference between soup, stew, or stewed parsnips, braised meats, etc.
Just a wild thought.
