against the wind...

today was a long one.  
i'm not even sure why. worn out and a bit deep down sad. 
i fell asleep at a stop light
after picking up roxie.  startled awake when someone
honked.  what's that about?  
i think i even drooled.  
sometimes just moving my hands, keeping them
busy can ward that kind of thing off so i 
made some soup and bread for supper. 
this soup is always just right, especially 
when the garden is full of kale.  the bread is 
i don't have exact amounts for the soup, but you can't
mess it up.  the pic above is all washed out
and misleading. 
it's actually rainbow bright.

Kale Soup
yellow onion, diced
couple serrano peppers, minced
2 Tbsp. garlic, minced
15 oz. diced tomatoes
potato; peeled, diced
sweet potato; peeled, diced
can cannelloni beans (or great northern) rinsed
1-2 bunches kale; stemmed, chopped
6-8 cups vegetable stock
3 tsp. italian seasoning

saute onion, peppers, and garlic in olive oil.  add remaining ingredients and simmer until potatoes are tender. top with parmesan. 
i've added summer sausage and almost always add cheese tortellini the last 10 minutes.

  1. We are of the same mind on this soup. I made an almost identical soup that I'm about to blog about. Clever ladies, we are!
