I had never been impressed by soups until
I enjoyed this one at Olive Garden.
It is their Zuppa Toscana
and has a very
combines the foods I
I could probably stop right there
and you would know how wonderful it
is but I think I will share a
like the one
I used for our Fellowship Meal on Sunday.
There are many of these recipes out there.
I have used two different ones and they
have worked wonderfully.
this past weekend.
I say, worked from, because this makes
soup for 6-8 and I was filling my crock pot.
So, I made some adjustments.....
but that is the beauty of soup.
It is very, very forgiving.
I've never had so many compliments on something
I've brought to the meal.
I have to admit, the soup is pretty amazing
and its not hard.
Just time consuming.
I had not known how to use kale
until I made this soup.
It is amazing how much of this
I actually made because we used it
for our dinner on Saturday evening
and then as our boys friends came over
to hang out and spend the night they
each had "some" too.
No arm twisting, or anything.
The fragrance of the soup is
very, very inviting.
Then it still nearly filled the crock pot
in the morning.
Although, after years of carrying
pots of food in the car I did learn
to put some of this into a lidded container
to finally fill the crock pot once we
arrived at church.
It has taken me years to
get that idea.
All those Sundays with sloshed
chili in the trunk!
I'm obviously not the brightest
bulb on the tree...
