Have you missed me? I haven't been hiding. I've been sick. This virus is really hanging on (today is day 10). I feel bad for the kids. They have been eating so much canned soup, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, and other not so healthy dinners.
I did feel well enough to make dinner one night this past week. I threw together a soup out of whatever random veggies I had on hand. I used onion, 2 carrots, 1 turnip, 1/2 clove garlic, handful of kale, 2 cobs of corn, 1/2 leek, 1/3 pint of home canned tomatoes (leftover in fridge), handful of green beans, homemade veggie broth, and about 1/2 cup barley. I wanted to try using beans in soup. I looked in the freezer and found a cup of chickpeas. Perfect. I tossed them in. Wow. This was delicious. And good thing because I ate it for days!
