|Rich's Vegetable Soup!|
I can make simple fare like lasagna, spaghetti, and chicken dishes, but when it comes to real cooking, well...
I've been trying to move away from eating meat. Recently, I visited my friend Anne and her husband, Joe, and sister Betty. They served a delicious meal starting with a selection of hors d'oeurves followed by a delectable vegetable soup. I admitted to Anne that I'd like to learn how to make soup and she followed up by emailing me the recipe.
The next Sunday, I headed off to the supermarket to buy the ingredients. The shop had rutabaga, but not turnip. Duh! Who knew they were the same! It gets worse: I'd never opened a garlic clove or used barely in any form. But, step by step I just pushed through. Honestly, I love this soup! It's hearty and filling... I had so much that I froze two big containers after three meals.
Now my soup and cooking friends have to listen to me, "the cook," talk the game I just learned. I have such good friends...
Here's the recipe Anne provided:
