Monday Minestrone

What a windy day! And at 92F, walking around downtown was a bit challenging.  And what did I crave when I got home?  Soup!  I took the advice of friends and made Minestrone with my leftover vegetables and whatever's in my pantry - canned chicken stock, tomatoes and beans... just perfect!

  1. Sounds like "minestra" a common soupy veggie dish here in Spain!

    By the way, nabitin pa din ako sa usap natin last night! Para bang I just want to keep on talking kahit non-sense like "gbrrssshhh badar badar poglarka gdgdgdgd.." Just to shake it off my mind!!!
