Happy Birthday Shelby!!!
Today is the birthday of Grumpy’s honey bunch and we are throwing a virtual surprise birthday party.
Shelby, who writes one of my favorite blogs, The Life And Loves Of Grumpy’s Honeybunch, is turning another year older and we’re here to celebrate! Katrina, of Baking And Boys is hosting this party, and asked everyone to make a recipe from Shelby’s blog and post it today. You can find the link to all the party goers at Katrina’s. Plus she made the birthday cake, you’ll want to stop by for a slice of that!
With the cooler weather of Fall upon us, I’m ready for soup and sweater weather. I brought Shelby’s Vegetarian Minestrone Soup to the party. My soup was a little thicker and heartier in the vegetable department then the original recipe, but it was oh so good. I used my food processor for chopping up my onions, carrots, and zucchini and I didn’t really measure. I just chopped and dumped, and then realized I needed more broth, so I added 2 more cups of water. It made a huge pot of soup, and we ate every single drop of it! It’s light in calories, heavy on the healthy stuff, and satisfied the soul.
Thank you for a great soup recipe Shelby and…
I wish you a happy birthday and delicious day!
Check out all the fun!
