They were having so much fun they did not want to come home. So I used my pink soup as a lure to get them excited to go home. But when we got home and I went to dish up dinner the soup had been simmering and the pink was no more. At the most it was a slight creamy blush, but not pink. Maddie broke down in tears. She was SO excited for the pink soup. I apologized profusely and told her that I didn't know it wasn't pink anymore. That night, someone on Facebook gave me the idea to add pureed beets to the leftovers. As luck would have it, I had some beets that had already been roasted and stored in the freezer. So, puree I did. That is what you see above. Pureed beets added to the Tuscan "white" bean soup. The girls loved the addition and the day was saved.
