Salad Soup and Dumplings...weird, I know, but good!!

...on my own... felt like comfort food... homemade soup!  

...warmed some olive oil in a pot... 

...threw in diced onion and 7 or 8 tiny, new potatoes, washed and cubed. 

Good smells already!!

...checked the fridge and out came the remains of a salad from the night before... spinach, tomatoes, yellow pepper, green onions...

Could be interesting!  Added the salad to the pot.

What else??
... 1/2 cup salsa
... 1/2 cup leftover spaghetti sauce 
... 1 1/2 cups of water
... a splash of Worcestershire sauce

My soup simmered happily for about 20 minutes and then I added...


1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt

Mix dry ingredients, then cut in 
1/2 Tbsp. butter

Stir in 1/4 cup of milk to make a soft dough.
Drop spoonfuls onto soup.  
Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.


Comfort food...always hits the spot!
