Another digression

Warm, hearty-but-delicate soup for a cold, rainy day!  I use chickpeas, leeks, carrots, potatoes, broth (I prefer beef, but veggies can use veg broth).  Then, add a dash of red pepper and a pinch of saffron, finishing it off with a couple a T's of the "Tuscan Herb" oil from the Vintage Olive shop over in Mgm....just heaven.  I polished off one bowl of it and desperately wanted another, but my stomach was so full....my  mouth was having such a good time but the tum said "absolutely not!"  Happily, this keeps nicely.  Lovely with fresh, warm bread.  Looks pretty, too.  Don't ask for measurements!  I "eyeball" everything.
