Fagioli Soup

When mom is here it is always a treat. My friends at MOPS and at the kids school have been sending dinner over. It is the best gift to not have to shop, worry, or prepare dinner most nights right now. On nights that someone hasn’t sent dinner, mom makes incredible meals!

The first night she was here she made hamburger creamed gravy. Brian was in heaven. Later that week she made fagioli soup and I knew I had to share it with you! She got a kick out of me insisting on taking photographs of the meal. She got to see a little ‘blogging behind the scenes’. She laughed as I poured a glass of wine for the pictures – since I’ve never seen her have a drop in my entire life 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 1 onion

I hope you love it! It was a huge hit with my littles!

Mary Thompson - I love cooking for you. Soup just nourishes
The body and the soul.

tinuviel - YUM! Without the onions, I think we could make that work next time we share a meal with my folks. (Your mom followed me on Instagram. Lovely surprise!!)
