I'm starting a pot of 15 bean soup today. It's 68 so it's definitely soup weather.

Now I need to ask, but not sarcastic or anything.....do you mean that you are putting 15 beans into the soup, or 15 types of bean? ( cuz I don't think I can even name that many types.....)

15 types of beans, it usually includes barley, lentils and split peas of various colors. Very good soup!

I've been living off this soup for the last week or so. Made it twice so far and have been having it for breakfast. It's delicious!

Taj Mahal Soup


2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 med onion, peeled and minced
1 1 1/2-inch piece fresh ginger root, peeled and minced
1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground turmeric
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1/2 tsp. cayenne
1 cup dried lentils, rinsed and drained
3/4 lb. yellow squash or zuchini, thinly sliced
1 10-oz pkg. frozen spinach, partially thawed
4 cups chicken broth
1 1-oz can whole tomatoes
1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken (optional. I did not include chicken this time)
In a large, heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, ginger, and garlic and cook until soft, 3-5 minutes. Add cumin, turmeric, coriander, and cayenne and stir to blend. Add lentils, squash, spinach, chicken broth, and tomatoes and heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer 50 minutes. Add chicken, if desired, and heat thoroughly.

Although 4 cups of stock is no where near enough. I finished all my home made chicken stock on it too... wahh... need to make more.

Lol! This cracked me up Zhizara! "68" here is Summer! I do love bean soup though, the one we make is 13 Bean Soup and it was always the star of our Ski Holidays. Great for warming you up at lunch time!

Now yer crackin me up!

When it gets down to 68F here, all the locals start putting on sweaters and jackets. The tourists here on vacation look at us like we're nuts and we look at them running around in shorts and T-Shirts like thier nuts.

It was 67F in the house last night and I had a blanet on me while I watched TV. That's dern near freezin!

If it was 67 in my house here, I'd be turning the heat on... or the air conditioning off. One of the two, lol.

I eat inside mostly, so have never let outside temperature influence what I am hungry for. That said, I do notice I make more mashed potatoes and gravy in the colder months. Maybe it's my internal thermostat telling me that my body will warm too much digesting all that if I eat it when it's 90F out and then walk outside.
