I love to cook, but sometimes (actually a lot of times) I just need a meal that's super quick and easy to get on the table. In the summer, that would probably be hamburgers or a simple salad or sandwiches. In the fall and winter, I turn to soups or one-pot dishes. This is one of my favorite simple suppers, and it's a favorite with my family, too (well, everyone except Julia--we're working on her :)). Sam especially loves this, and tonight he had 2 bowls full!
Alphabet Vegetable Soup (recipe from my mom--2nd recipe down in the post)
and this focaccia bread (from Taste of Home) makes a great accompaniment (yum, yum!) to this meal, and pretty much any meal, for that matter! You've gotta try this, it is SO good.
(Sorry for the photo quality--I'm a terrible food photographer, and I was in a hurry, which didn't help!)
