Anybody ready for SOUP?!
It's going down to 49 degrees tonight (supposedly?). Anything under 50 is fair game for soup around here. :)
I put a pot on about an hour ago, just winged it with the following chopped, smashed, torn, whatever...
3-1/2 Cups soaked dry Navy Beans from a new #10 can
3 Celery Stalks + a few leaves
1 Large Spanish Onion
2 Bay Leaves
1 Clove of Garlic (just for h@ll of it)
4 Diced Roma Toms that were a bit past their prime
Handful of Parsley from the patio pot
2 Cups of my homemade Salsa Verde
2 Cups of my precious homemade Chicken Broth
4 Cups water
2 Fresh Ham Hocks (all natural from Terra Firma Farm)
It's starting to smell heavenly - like fall. Rather than bread with the soup I'm going to make Indian Pudding this afternoon into which I always toss a can of Libby's Pumpkin Puree. (BTW, I saw a news blurb a couple days ago saying pumpkin crop was lousy again this year due to excess rain.) Perfect finish for dinner. Extras will hit the freezer and bank a few meals for later in the fall when we're busy raking and don't want to cook.
Anybody else ready for soup?
