The calendar say it’s Spring, but Northeastern Ohio says otherwise. It seems we had our Spring in Winter and now our Winter in Spring. Sure, I’m a tad disappointed we can’t have those Springtime temperatures all the time, but that just leaves me rolling with the cooler weather punches. In this case it is a warm, hearty and tasty punch 🙂
I’ve made this minestrone soup for years. You just can’t go wrong with the soup. It’s fast, easy and you adapt the ingredients to most of your families likings . It usually gets a kid approval with occasional whines of, “why do you have to put tomatoes in it”, or ” can I pick the beans out?”. The original recipe is from Betty Crocker’s Cookbook. I have adapted the original recipe to fit my families forever changing tastes. There are some ingredients that I sneak in the soup, but then there are other ingredients that I know will cause the big sighs and whines so I omit those all-together.
