My blog has finally gotten long enough that I can’t remember for sure what I’ve written about. Okay, I’m pretty darned sure I’ve written about this long out of print book by Judith Barrett called From an Italian Garden before, but I’m scanning my old blog entries and not finding it. Maybe I could come up with simpler blog entry titles? Nah. The thing is, I made this white bean soup (again) the other day, and I got this cool effect with the smoke in the photo, so I had to post it. The soup couldn’t be any simpler. You start with canned white beans, and 30 minutes later you’re serving a soup that makes it seem like you’re a genius in the kitchen.
