I have this youngest brother who is taking his very last college final of his life right now. Do you remember that moment? I sure do. It was the best day of my life. It was a beautiful June day, I was 9 months +5 days pregnant with my first child and I came skipping out of the testing center doing those little heel click jumps. You know the ones– where you jump up and click your heels out to the side kind of like a hee haw cowboy. No one was around. It would have been disturbing to see a little pregnant gal jumping like that. I actually had our first child 6 days later. I don’t think we could have timed that any better if we had planned it.
Back to Eric, in his honor today I thought I’d post this soup recipe he told me about. He had it at an in-laws home a while back, and has just been raving about it. He swears it is the best soup on the planet. I’ll have to admit it was really tasty. It comes from Ina Garten. I love her! Maybe it’s the fact that she is such a plump cheerful lady, and I’ve decided she loves food. She has the best recipes. Some of my all time favorites come from her. The recipes are usually really straight forward, and unassuming. I really need to post her Macaroons. Chocolate dipped to be exact. To die for!! The Italian Wedding Soup is wonderful. It is a very pretty soup to serve and it’s not heavy. You can eat it year round. You can always use store bought meatballs, but the homemade ones were yummy.
