My aunt no longer has a garden and doesn’t can vegetables, so when I get a craving for vegetable soup now, I do it the lazy man’s way....
In case you’re wondering what veggies I buy, here’s the list:
2 cans of diced tomatoes (usually with spices added, like basil and garlic)
1 can of corn
1 can of Purple Hull peas
1 can of string beans
1 can of diced potatoes
My series character, Charlie Harris, is lucky enough to have a housekeeper who cooks most of his meals. If he wants vegetable soup, then Azalea Berry will make it from fresh veggies, unlike me. Charlie and his sidekick Diesel, the Maine Coon cat, have a new adventure, The Silence of the Library, which came out January 28th.
