I got another jury summons! The last one was in July of 2017. I got chosen and even empaneled, but it never went to trial. So here I go again. To be honest, I don’t mind, but finding parking is awful. What a fiasco.

Last week we experimented with a soup we saw featured on a tv show. This is the recipe I used.They call it Tuscan Vegetable Soup.

It was good, but there are a few things I want to change. I thought it needed an extra can of white beans and less tomato. We had no fennel so we used celery instead. It was excellent. Hardy enough for a dinner meal.

We plan to make an extra large batch and freeze the rest in portions for the next time we want something filling but not heavy.

  1. Angela Brown

    It is interesting seeing what you have set for your weekly menu.

    The kiddo and I are getting a bit more regular at making two big “dinners” on Sunday so it will last us through at least Wednesday, since it is just the two of us, then wing it Thursday through Saturday.

    I am interested in what do you do for snacks between breakfast and early dinner?

  2. Angela: If we’re busy, which we are when it’s not freezing, we might skip snack/lunch all together and eat dinner around 4-5.

    On regular days when we have time to snack it’s usually something super easy like grilled cheese, soup, or cheese and crackers. Occasionally we have grilled pannini sandwiches with some deli meat, but I won’t overthink it. It’s just a little something to tide us over until dinner. If Greg wants more than that he knows where the refrigerator is. 🙂

Say a few words for our audience.
