Winter Vegetable Shhooup (Soup)

Again with the snow. We're supposed to get 10 MORE inches this evening. Offices were closed for the second time this week.  There's only one thing left to do: make soup.

I love the ideas guy who thought of packaging leftover bits of vegetable together. It's brilliant because you don't have to think too much about what to get and it's the perfect amount. In this pack was parsnip, onion, turnip, celery, carrot, a leek, a bit of parsley and fresh dill. That's all you need!  I just added potatoes, some kale and seasonings. It's really hearty--even your carnivore friends will like it.
