Or Borscht-- now that it's beet season again on my coast. By the way, there's been a frost--heck there's been a blizzard-- so the kale should be tasty now.
A note about college: in our experience, need some supplemental foods-- granted my kid is allergic to all Big Eight foods, but not enough starches and not a strong variety of proteins. But I'm hands off, and he's hands on, so it's working-- with some trips to Treasure Island (the grand supermarket there) and some treats from home (like all moms send).
more later-- and a real recipe for those soups when I get the mix right.
