Cabbage and Summer Squash Soup

September 18, 2013

Today was gray and rainy all day so it looked like a ‘soup’ day.  But ‘looking like’ is not always the real deal.  Thank goodness for my midnight cooking as I made this wonderful pot of soup last night.  So a very quick and delicious dinner with some fresh bread and a selection of cheeses.
