Cold Weather Food

 My husband felt the hint of a cold coming on so he soaked in the big boy jet tub Thursday night, then spent a lot of hours beneath warm blankets in his recliner chair Friday morning.
I headed out to get groceries, including all the makings for homemade soup.
let me tell you....
That time spent in his recliner sure bounced him back to life and he spent the afternoon making homemade soup atop the stove;
minestrone, which is our favorite and probably the easiest soup to make too.
Once it was done we sprinkled a bit of parmesan cheese on top.....
and did I tell you he also made homemade bread?
I mean, what's soup without bread?

He feels 100% better today and there will be enough soup for quite a few winter meals.

*when it comes to making bread.... make two and freeze one to bake later*


  1. would he consider sharing his recipe? looks so good

  2. I was going to make minestrone on Friday, but decided at the last minute to make lentil/vegetable soup with Italian turkey sausage. It was the best lentil soup we've ever had, if I do say so myself! Now if I could just remember what I put in it! :) And there's nothing like homemade bread!!! And the house smells good for days, too.
