Food Prep Week 7/17-7/21

I used my handy dandy cookbook and made minestrone soup this week.  The portions in this book are huge.  This recipe makes 4 servings and when I portioned everything I had to put it in to containers that were 5.3 cups and they were full to the brim.  I also paired my soup with some orzo.  I love orzo, not quite rice, but not a pasta either.
Her recipe calls for either broccoli or green beans.  I opted for broccoli, but I won't use that again. That was not a taste I liked.  And I HATE green beans, so that will never be an option.  I used carrots, celery, onion, kale, broccoli, yellow potatoes, diced tomatoes, kidney beans, navy beans, black beans and half veggie broth and water.  I grabbed some seasonings, and put in the crock pot.

This was so filling, that I actually gave one of the bowls of soup to a friend.  I couldn't even eat it all.
