Okay, honestly, I'm not sure how well a big pot of hot soup will go over with the family in the middle of a Virginia August but ... Just look at all those vegetables! What better way to use up all those fresh garden vegetables?
Oh, if only we had a garden this year.
But no matter. There's a nice vegetable stand down the road. They'll have an overabundance of fresh vegetables I'm sure. Minestrone, here we come!
