Dinner Last Night

Since my CSA delivery arrived today, it was the perfect opportunity to use some of my fresh local ingredients to make a festive fall soup - Tuscan Bean soup a la Emeril. Honestly, this soup was surprisingly easy. I got home late after a long meeting and wasn't feeling like hovering in the kitchen for a long period of time.

I did deviate from the recipe a little... I didn't have any panetta on hand, and I didn't have all 3 bean varieties so I just used the cannellini beans I had and substituted in black beans, and it turned out just fine. In my opinion, the fresh herbs and tomatoes contributed the most to the rich, hearty flavor.

The best part - leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Woo hoo!

I think soup is the perfect food for every day between October and March. You can't go wrong with soup, and there are so many types that would fit even the most fancy dinner, and of course a quick lunch on monday mid day :)
