Comfort in a bowl, first cool weekend in October

Oct 2, 2011

Well, its October, and with October comes the cool air and crappy weather. Today was no exception. Both Hubby and I were feeling a bit under the weather. Him, more hungover than anything and me, just plain tired. I've stopped drinking due to the whole baby making situation so no more hangovers for me!

I decided to make a big pot of soup for the week. I think Minestrone soup is one of my favorites. I've never added spinach before but I defintely think I will be from now on!


Minestrone Soup
Serves 8 (makes 12 cups) / 4p+
42 oz fat-free beef broth (3 cans)
15 oz stewed tomatoes with juice
6 oz canned tomato paste
10 oz water
15 oz can kidney beans -  drained and washed
1 tsp italian seasoning
1 1/2 cup(s) frozen mixed vegetables
2 cup(s) cooked macaroni
2 cups Spinach chopped up

Grab a big pot, and dump all the ingredients except macaroni and spinach in it. Boil for 10 minutes. If your going to serve it immediately add the last two ingredients, otherwise wait until your ready to eat and then heat through.
