I have a strong urge to make a pot of soup today so I settled on Minestrone. Fortunately I have all the ingredients on hand so I only have to assemble them and sit back while it simmers on the stove.
I really love to make homemade soups. The only problem is that I keep adding stuff and pretty soon I have way too much. After eating it for several days, it gets boring so then I put the rest in plastic containers and freeze it.
That would be great except the next time I want soup, I want to make it, not defrost it.
There's just no enjoyment to defrosting old soup!
