Sunday Soup Time

I started a minestrone just now.  Minestrone is a great soup to have up your sleeve at any time of the year.  It's a hearty vegetable soup with beans and tiny pasta that makes a meal with good bread or a salad.  In the fall, you can add chunks of butternut squash to the soup.  In the spring, you can add peas and/or asparagus.  Of course, if you need some bacon (and who doesn't), you can start the soup by sauteing some pancetta or diced bacon before you add your vegetables.

Here's a great article I found on food52.com about building a minestrone from your fridge and pantry.

G starts a new job this week so I thought the soup would be good to have hanging out in the fridge as a grab 'n' go item.
