Soups - The 1st One9:30 AM
Often I feel like I am scrambling all over trying to finish up tasks on my list (there's a bazillion!) and so when it comes to dinner time, I fall back on some basics. Well, lately the basics have been, well kind of basic. So, as a family we decided to make some changes, and our first step towards this was to sign up for a bi-monthly vegetable box. The challenge with the vegetable box is now we have to make something out of all the wonderful fresh vegetables that arrive bright and early Friday morning.
Our first box arrived with everything recognizable, except for a bunch of dark green leafy stuff that according to our sheet is 'Swiss Chard'. Well, I've read about this stuff, but I've never eaten it, touched, or even imagined cooking it! I sent out a quick 'Help' to my friend (and amazing chef) Kim and she responded quickly with the following delicious soup. This was a great rustic Italian style soup that we ate up for dinner and then lunch the next day. The whole family loved it and I hope you do too!
