Blooms and SpoonsAt some point last week, I was rummaging around in my fridge for something and I realized that there were a LOT of odds and ends in there … a few sticks of celery, a bruised apple, a scant bundle of Swiss chard, a couple of parsnips, some chunks of Hamburg parsley, two small leeks, and a huge bag of carrots.

Of course, I right away got to thinking about soup … specifically, carrot soup with a few extra “trimmings.” Here is what I put together:

(Mostly Carrot) Harvest Soup

Wash, peel and coarsely chop all of the following ingredients, and place into a large saucepan:

1 large onion

2 small leeks, white parts only (put the green parts aside and use them in another recipe)

Hey Sheryl, I have a name for that soup. It's called Dad's refrigerator soup. My kids would cringe when I would say, "It's time for some refrigerator soup". I wasn't so discreet about what I put in mine. What ever was left over from the week went into the pot. I always thought it was great but the rest of the family usually ordered pizza. Their loss. It left more for me. :-) ***** Have a great refrigerator soup day.
