After MUCH turmoil I am making a pot of soup using some fresh veggies:

onions
carrots
celery
tomatoes
zucchini
yellow squash
cabbage
kale
corn off the cob

basil
flat parsley
salt and pepper
a tad of sugar always brings out the taste of the veggies

I am adding some kielbasa for that smoke flavor I like in it.

For the broth I am using the stock I made from the smoked chickens and then adding some vegetable broth to top it off.

well last night I had a turkey breast on the grill..... but it took too long and we ended up at Taco Bell for dinner.
So tonight we had grilled turkey, rice pilaf w/ jasmine rice my mom's friend brought while visiting from Louisiana last week, and steamed broccoli.

Thanks pds - I wish I could share it with you. Forgot to add I threw in a Parmesan rind I had in the freezer and then at the end added just a bit of acini di pepe.

I'm having a little taste now and I love it because everything is still fresh and not mushy!

What does the rind do... does it melt...do you just use it for flavor and then remove??
