OK, here's the soup recipe:

1 pound ground beef (I only use 1/2 lb.)
1 cup chopped onion
6 carrots, cut in 1/2 in. julienne
2 stalks chopped celery
3 cloves minced garlic
2 14.5 oz. cans chopped tomatoes
1 15 oz. can great northern beans, undrained
1 15 oz. can kidney beans, undrained
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 12 oz. can vegetable juice
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon pepper
8 oz. ditalini pasta

Brown ground beef in a large skillet and drain off all but 2 tablespoons of the grease. Add onion, carrots, celery and garlic and saute for 10 minutes.

In a 6 qt. pot, combine meat mixture and all remaining ingredients, EXCEPT pasta, and simmer for 1 hour.

Cook pasta in 2 qts. of boiling water for 8-10 minutes until the pasta is al dente. Do not overcook.

Add pasta to soup and simmer 15 minutes.

It's a lot of work to julienne all those carrots, but worth it because they don't get mushy. The soup is better if made the day before, and will thicken when refrigerated. Add water to thin if desired. 8 generous servings.

Wine: 1992 Chateau Franc Lartigue (Saint-Emilion Grand Cru).

P.S. I'd settle for chili any night, though!

Tonight was even worse than the last time I posted on this thread (leftover pizza). Tonight was a bag of microwave popcorn and I don't have the wife being out of town as an excuse!

cblaisd, when are you inviting me over for dinner?

I don't cook. Soy demasiado perezosa. (I.e., je suis trop paresseuse.)

Right now I'm eating some delicious dim sum that I bought on Stockton St. in Chinatown.

I was in Chinatown because I had a dental appointment there today. (My previous dentist was in Chinatown too!)

Not only that, but they even include domestic wine in their latest "meal-in-a-box!"
