It was a most excellent day for soup here in the greater Palmyra area.Â Rainy, chilly and stormy equals “soup weather” as far as I’m concerned.
I went to Recipezaar looking for a good recipe, but then ended up making something off the cuff based on what I knew I had on hand.Â A tasty homemade bean with bacon soup.
Two cans of cannelloni beans, a can of chicken broth, heated slowly in my saucepan.Â I only had four slices of thick-cut bacon–not enough for breakfast for the family, but the perfect amount for soup.Â So I fried up the bacon, cut it up, and then sauteed diced carrots, celery and onion in the bacon grease.Â Added the bacon and the veggies to the beans and broth, with a dash of salt and garlic powder (I’d have used fresh garlic, but I was out.)Â Brought it up to a boil, then lowered the heat to a simmer.Â Served with tasty grilled cheeses all ’round.
