Joshua's Rock Soup
Recently Joshua asked if he could make "Rock Soup" for dinner. Normally I shy away from this type of thing--I feel more comfortable cooking from a recipe. However, we had lots of garden produce that needed used, so I thought he had a great idea. He had tons of fun making it! He chopped all sorts of vegetables and came up with lots of ideas of yummy things to add to the soup. Even though we don't have a recipe (you just add what you want), I wanted to share the picture of his yummy creation. He started by sauteeing onions, carrots, and garlic. Then he added chicken broth and crushed tomatoes. He added lots of different vegetables, fresh herbs, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, pasta, and a Parmesan cheese rind for flavor. He tasted as he went along and adjusted the seasonings as necessary. It was delicious!
