The weather is rainy and damp-although it really is not cold! For some reason I was desiring soup...soooooooooo I got to cooking!
Well as usual I don't use recipes- I sort of create as I go along. I started dicing onions and pretty soon I was making a soup very similar to the one I made the other day - you might remember from a previous post. The only difference is that I used spinach today- I added barley and some tomato paste. I also added a can of beans and some green beans. The soup was chock full of goodies and tasted delicious.
Last minute I decided to make some quick bread dough - I thought the soup could use some fresh baked rolls.
It was a hit and everyone was happy- even my son-since I knew he would not dare try my soup I made him a pizza.
