Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Soup Sunday is one of my favorite days of the week. Plus, having leftovers for Monday is so so great. I found this recipe online and when I first made the soup, I didn't love it. It was kind of bland and pretty dry. The next day I played around with the leftovers a little bit and was able to make it a lot better. The original recipe is as is, my additions are in red. I hope you enjoy it! Do you have any soups you love, if so, please share in the comments!

  9. When I was ready, I added the kale and cooked for about 2 minutes, until it wilted. 
  10. Add the meatballs, mix together and serve!
