Fall feeling with Minestrone Soup

The last couple of days I have had a feeling that fall is early this year. It has been cold at night, yesterday had heavy rain and today very windy.

Today I have given all my potted plants an xtreme makeover. Feels good to get that done!

I also made some comfort food for dinner, a home-made minestrone soup served with bread, cheese and pesto. I love this quick and easy soup:

Minestrone Soup:
Fry 300 grams of minced meat in a large kettle. Add approx. 1 liter of meat broth and a can of chopped tomatoes. Add 4 sliced poatatoes, 2 sliced carrots, 1 sliced leek, 1 chopped onion and a cup of uncooked pasta. Let the soup simmer until the vegetables are tender. Add 1 can of red or white beans, 1 small can of sweet corn and half a chopped squash or cucumber. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!

I also want to show you a flower that I got in a bouquet from the man himself, amazing and long lasting cut flower.

Suppen ser veldig god ut. Jeg skal prøve den en dag. Det passer bra nå som høsten ser ut til å ha satt inn.
