So I made soup...(out of the freezer)
|Ross took a picture...|
|Linda (LK) and her Mom -- my Aunt Ada.|
|Linda's son, Danny, visiting from California -- and his daughter Ally, from Atlanta.|
|John and Karl always share their "I-was-in-the-Navy-on-submarines-stories"...|
|The ladies adjourned to the puzzle table...|
|Aunt Ada putting in THE LAST PIECE!! (she was bizarrely thrilled)|
|Frankie thought they did a great job!|
Everybody doctor's up soup to their own taste -- WHICH IS REALLY THE BEST THING ABOUT SOUP....here's a link to a great Italian Wedding soup recipe to start with: Italian Wedding Soup From The Food Network
But I always start the soup by sauteing some onions and celery, which is not part of this recipe...feel free to put your own spin on it!! Giada stirs in some egg, right at the end...and that can be good, too.
I LOVE this soup because when the little meatballs are poached, they are very soft...and the spinach and orzo are the perfect combination.
Don't forget to have Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top!!
