I made spinach and ricotta canneloni with sliced olives and chunky tomatoes (not sauce). Topped it with sour cream that had garlic and parsley in before the grated cheddar and parmesan. Much drier than normal and I went really heavy on the spinach, but the sour cream added a different dimension to it. Drinking my second small glass of after dinner port as I type.

Mmmmmmmmmm.. I have a pound of "mixed beans" soaking, and when I get home will put them in the soup pot with a sauteed mirepoix, a meaty ham hock and some water..... by the time my laundry is in the machines and I'm back upstairs, the house ought to be smelling pretty good.

I actually have a Condo Board meeting at 7 -- it's a short one, so by the time I get back from that, the soup should be ready to eat. It's cold and cr*ppy out, and I love soup, anyway!
