Depression Soup

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.
