We've been reading all of the Kit Kittredge American Girl books lately and I've also been trying to use up all of our veggies left from our CSA boxes. So I concocted this soup(it's really just a made up veggies soup with navy beans but we ended up calling it Depression Soup because it made so much we ate it for 3 days in a row! I just kept adding new things to it the next night, changing it up a little and adding broth. It was delicious but by the 3rd night the family was over it. I just kept telling them to pretend we were living when Kit's family did and that we should be thankful for all we have. It was a good lesson and an excellent way to make a big dent in the remaining fresh veggies that had to be eaten up before they went bad.
