This week’s Staff Recipe is from Marti, our CCKC Brand Evangelist…
Halloween holds a special place among holidays, as it celebrates the neighborhood. And, for the better part of two decades, our Halloweens have been spent at our dear friend Kathy’s house, just down the street from us. From the time our daughter was very small (she’s in college now), we took her trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, ending at Kathy’s house. While Devin and her friends headed to the basement to wheel and deal on trading their favorite candy loot, the adults gathered upstairs and enjoyed Kathy’s legendary Minestrone Soup and White Chicken Chili.
The trick-or-treating and candy trades are a thing of the past, but we adults still gather at Kathy’s for soup and time with friends every year at Halloween. I always look forward to these chilly fall evenings!
Kathy agreed to share her Minestrone Soup recipe on our Kitchen Talk blog. She recommends making it a day ahead of when you plan to serve it. Not only does it make your party-day prep easier, it lets the delicious flavors of the soup really intensify. Enjoy!
