Soup of the day is....

Take one tin of diced tomatoes, 1 tin of five bean mix, 2 sticks of celery & one medium onion - dice these finely, 1 cup of chicken stock and one cup of penne pasta along with 1 litre  of water.   Put them all into a large saucepan, bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer for one hour stirring occasionally to end up with a lovely big bowl of hot steaming minestrone soup.

....enough for 4 generous serves.    Serve with a bread roll or hot buttered toast with a smear of Vegemite.  Delicious.     It makes a lovely lunch on a cold day.   Seeing that the wind is blowing and the temperature dropped I am going to make a pot of soup this morning.

Pls note that I am not advertising any product.....they just happen to be what I had in my pantry on the day.  

While my soup is simmering I am going to put a zipper in a pinafore that I am making for bub.    Zippers and I are not friends.   I will let you know how I go and in the meantime

Happy sewing all
