Sounds nice!  What will you do with it now?  Eat it straight up or with something else?  Or use it to make bread, etc.?

Pohjolas Daughter:
Made white pasta e fagioli (a Rachael Ray recipe).  Pretty good but am hoping that it will taste better on Day 2.  It has pancetta, cannelloni beans, onions, fennel, celery, rosemary, bay leaves, chicken stock, garlic, ditalini, escarole, nutmeg and lemon in it.  Here's a link to the recipe (along with a video) if you're interested:  https://www.rachaelrayshow.com/recipes/white-pasta-e-fagioli-rachael-ray

I'd love to find a vegetarian version of it, but one that also has a lot of flavor.  I'm thinking about how I could make her recipe a bit richer flavor-wise.

Simple November snacks that have hitherto been very rare on the menu: a family member brought some eatable chestnuts - so fried them in oil and salt for about 30 mins, and then peeled them. That's the primitive version, but yummy, they had a somewhat sweet-salty flavour and felt very nourishing. Could definitely make a habit of that ...

Never had them that way before, but happy that you enjoyed them!

Am happily eating a bowl of homemade chicken and vegetable soup.  This time I put in, carrots, onions, celery, cut up fresh green beans, added in a can of dark kidney beans, a combo of fresh and dried spices and homemade chicken stock....and some leftover cut-up chicken meat of course.  Letting myself have two bowls of it today as no breakfast and busy housecleaning here.  :)

MusicTurner:
That sounds great, seasonally relevant, and healthy as well  8)

Obviously, the chestnuts were only fried on a thin layer of oil and salt, not cooked in an oil sauce :)
