Double dippin'

My post title just made me think of dipping dots. I miss them. I only got them at cedar point and I haven't been there in years. Dipping dots is reason enough to go.

So It's winter in my house already.  Actually, it's fall and winter in my heart. I made a warm and healthy soup on my day off this afternoon and It got me excited for it all. Dee Dee assisted in the floor cleaning and was a peaceful companion all day.

 Since I contribute to a cooking blog with friends, I thought I'd share at both places.

Things you'll need:

Spinach(I used fresh)
one onion
3-4 cloves of garlic
2 carrots-chopped
3 large russett potatoes(or any of your choosing)-cubed
2 stalks celery
1/4 cup fresh parsley
salt and pepper
tablespoon turmeric
4 cups veggie stock
one bay leaf
touch of fresh lemon juice

I loved the coloring from the spinach and turmeric. It was a great way to use up all my market veggies from last week and the turmeric gave it a nice kick.

Cook garlic, onions and bay leaf for a few minutes. Add the remaining veggies(except spinach) and salt, pepper and turmeric and cook for about 5-6 min. Add veggie stock and bring to a boil. Simmer for 30-35 minutes and add spinach towards the end(last 15 minutes). After you remove the soup from the burner add the parsley and a touch of lemon.
