When Suzanne got home one day after work, she fixed herself
a nice cup of tea and sat down with her trusty notepad to design some new dresses for herself.
She wanted to present
them to the dress shop and have them sew the dresses for her.
Suzanne glanced at the clock. She gasped, knocking
over her lovely cup of tea. It was six o'clock!
John would be home any minute and she hadn't started dinner
Suzanne rummaged through her drawers to see what kinds of
vegetables and cooking supplies she had. Not much. What can she make?
Laying out all of the ingredients she could find on her
painted platter, Suzanne decides to make Passato di Verdure, or "Cream of Vegetable Soup."
10 Carrots5 Squash
Any vegetables that you have in your cupboard and want to
get rid of. (Perfect!)
Wash all of the vegetables in the bedroom sink.
Heat a soup pot over the fire...
... and add the vegetables.
Cover the pot and let it boil while you feed your pets.
(Suzanne gave her puppies extra sausage to make their coats silkier and shinier.)
Store the soup in a rose bush until ready to serve.
Only ten minutes after she'd put the pot in her prized rosebush,
Suzanne spotted John coming around the corner.
Giggling to herself, she stowed away her drawings of dresses
and served her steaming stew for her hungry husband.
