Bean soup last night
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.
