Crazy Annie's Viciously Delicious Minestrone Soup
you will need:
8 different kinds of beans like black, navy, peas, barley, lima, pinto, kidney and if you do use barley, be generous because it makes this dish.
Saute 2 onions (med dice), 8 cloves garlic (chopped fine) in olive oil
2 bay leaves
chopped parsley and chopped basil (fresh this time)
1 full jar pompadoro tomato puree
water to the top of the pot and bring all this to a boil
add cleaned legumes and grains
add salt to taste
reduce the heat to simmer and cook 2 to 3 hours
add your favorite macaroni and cook 10 more minutes...tasty and low in fat!
*eat with focaccia and juicy Kalamata olives on the side
My dough for the bread is rising as I write this. You can go to any good bakery and get some fine soup eatin' bread:)
Soups bring the family together and bring in good vibes.
It is not about anything other than good food, good family moments and if I may say,this "clan type gathering" is also about protection from harmful negative outside forces. Yes, look at the negative, but only give yourself a few minutes to analyze and please do not dwell on it. Remember any good thought is a thousand times more powerful than a negative one. I should always remember to say thanks and remember how lucky I am right now.
Not everything is about me anyhow.
Eat some soup and go kiss a child.
I am a child of The Universe! Kiss me..ha ha
