End of Summer Soup

From Real Simple:

End of Summer Soup

4 cups low sodium chicken broth
(We use veg broth)
1 15 oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 large zucchini, cut into bite sized pieces
1 large yellow squash, cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 pound green beans, cut into bite sized pieces
2 cup corn kernels, cut from 2 ears or frozen
1 medium onion, finely chopped
Kosher salt and black pepper
1/4 cup fresh dill sprigs

In a large saucepan over medium high heat, bring to boil. Add the beans, zucchini. Squash, green beans, corn, onion, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Simmer until the vegetables are tender. Stir in dill.

Honestly, I have one child who is a vegetarian, and with all due repect to her life choice, I think the chicken broth would have been better. Maybe a little shredded chicken to boot!

Gadget Guru

I think that my sister held me in higher esteem for my ability to try new things than I held myself.  But look at me now, blogging from my phone.  This will surely inspire me to post more often.  So, here goes! This is the beautiful floor we found after removing the carpet.  Wish it hadn't taken 15 years to convince my husband we should do it!
