  1. I make an Italian-like minestrone that is more or a stew than a soup in that there is very little broth. Topping each serving with freshly grated cheese and served with slices of crusty Italian bread makes for a perfect chilly weather meal. I put mild Italian sausage, bacon, garlic, onions, potatoes, veggies, beans (great northern), and pasta into the mix….

  2. I make a big pot of stew/soup using one of the stainless steel stockpots that we bought from Lehman’s and we eat on it for days on end. One day of cooking does for the rest of the week. :-) And that also means if I have unexpected company show up, I always have something to offer them to eat.
