I Can Stand the Heat

So I haven't posted yet today because I have been cooking. I'm making one of the Engineers favorite dinners, and it takes a lot of simmering and adding this and that and generally keeps me busy for a few hours. Next time I will probably try something easier, that still tastes homemade. Saw this recipe for zesty minestrone on the Kraft Foods site (check the "health and home" resources). Looks like after a lot of chopping with the food processor, I could just turn on the slow cooker and go out shopping!
