Soups & Sweet Treat 3.9.17

I was off last week (and today and tomorrow) with my girls for their winter break.  I think we experienced all four seasons during that week!  Summer- bare feet, ice cream and raking the garden beds, spring- mud season, rain and thunderstorms! & winter- so cold I don’t think we left the house on Saturday.  We had lots of fun spending time with friends and family, painting, and cooking!  My girls and I made Samosas last Monday- not as good as the Samosa Man’s, but pretty close.  I am ready to take the soup pots down and get back into the swing of things!

Eggplant Parmesan Soup…by far one of my most popular soups.  Ingredients: roasted eggplant, olive oil, garlic, onions, celery, stewed tomatoes, tomato juice, oregano, basil, garlic croutons, Parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar, kosher salt & pepper.  Garnished w. extra Parmesan.  13. per quart, served w. bread.  Vegetarian.
