Garden Vegetable Soup

2 tablespoons butter
2 large leeks, washed and chopped
6 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic, minced
3 (14 oz.) cans chicken broth
4 large red potatoes, washed and chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
1/2 tsp. black pepper

In a 5-quart pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add leeks, carrots, red pepper, and garlic and cook, stirring often, until they are tender but still crisp, about 10 minutes. Add broth and heat to boiling. Add potatoes and reduce heat to medium. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir in tomatoes, basil, and black pepper. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes longer.

That was indeed a cool recipe. I just love soup every dinner. It is just makes the meal complete having them. Thanks a lot!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
