      Good call! I’ve made 15 bean soup once. It was so tasty with ham in it.

    DEXTER! YES! lol We love that show. Can’t get enough of it. I think it’s the best show on TV right now. I didn’t think I would like it at first – it made me kinda uncomfortable…lol But now I just love it.

    The minestrone looks good, btw. I made chicken soup today because I’ve been sick with a cold. All from scratch, of course. 🙂

      That’s pretty good that you made soup from scratch when you weren’t feeling well!

      Check out “Breaking Bad”. It’s a great show–almost better than Dexter I think.

    I used a copycat olive garden recipe and in the comments they said to add some red wine and it made SO much difference. I slow cooked it all day and left out the spinach. Best minestrone I ever had.

      Good to know! I will try that next time.
