I made an AWESOME totally-from-scratch soup this week! No recipe, just yummy ingredients! I used northern beans, 2 garlic cloves, a package of frozen veges for soup (no seasoning), garlic powder, and a few pieces of leftover ham for flavoring. The "secret" ingredient was my George's Mix from a restaurant down in NC. I took a couple cups of the beans and put them in the blender to puree and then added to the pot. This gave the soup a creamy consistency without cream. After leaving the pot to simmer for an hour or so, viola! YUMMY SOUP!
And, for fun, I thought I would include a picture of the sunset the same night I made the soup. I took it through the screened window in the diningroom, but you get the picture - INCREDIBLE!
