Bean soup last night

I made North Woods Bean Soup last night from my Cooking Light cookbook.  None of my family liked it much except me.  I think it was the spinach -- maybe a bit too much.  I got to use one of my new Christmas presents -- an immersion blender -- to partially puree the soup.  What a great tool!  My kids are excited to make smoothies with it.  I served the soup with a simple salad -- grape tomatoes, cucumber, green pepper, and parmesan cheese with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing.  Tried the asiago cheese bread from Walmart -- very yummy, but probably not very healthy.  Everyone said it was the best part of the meal.  Thanks a bunch for that. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.
