a heaping portion of overwhelm, balanced by a big bowl of minestrone


things around here have gotten, um,
overwhelming.

underscoring the chaos today:
we have too many pets.
{yes, you told me so}
our dogs are being treated for giardia.
our snow has turned to mud.

two things making it better tonight:
this soup
{recipe below}

this wine
{this year is my favorite beaujolais nouveau ever}

my minestrone recipe/formula
in butter & olive oil, saute:
onion/garlic/celery/carrot/potato
with some salt & pepper.
add water or stock,
tomatoes/chick peas/kidney beans.
cook some pasta & add it {we like little shells}.
saute zucchini & green cabbage,
add to soup with a bag of frozen peas.

serve with grated parmesan & good bread.
like this
see?  makes everything better.
