appointments and soup!

"curves ahead". no freakin' kidding! doc update! try to slowly reintroduce dairy and no gluten ever again so help you god. done! check back in a month. good. I felt good with my visit. we chatted at length about my fears, worries and never ending internet medical studies. he giggled and kept asking where I read that? duh! on the internet! it was a great visit and I feel refreshed in knowing that he is with me and wants to keep watch over me to see how I am doing. yay!

in my sheer delight I decided to celebrate and make soup! woo hoo! love this recipe. haven't made it in ions, but makes a ton and so now I can have gluten free soup on hand. file under freezes well.

Northern Vegetable Soup

2 cups shredded cabbage

in a large pot heat oil and butter. add onion, garlic, celery, carrots and green pepper. saute for about 5 minutes. add parsely, basil and salt and pepper. stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, broth and water. bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer about 10 minutes. add macaroni, cover and cook till tender. add beans and cabbage. cover and simmer about 30 minutes. add extra water if needed.
