Spring is Here – Again

It was here for a few minutes a few weeks ago; now it is winter again. I made some really good minestrone with cannellini, red kidney, and pinto beans, onions, and the usual stuff, but no chicken stock; I like water based soups. It was fantastic with bruschetta, and each bowl I served was drizzled at the last moment with the greenest, most fragrant extra virgin olive oil I could get. Delicious. I sat there with my Irish rain hat on, my Scottish cashmere muffler, a long gray one, and a goose down vest I bought in Chinatown for $9.00 (wow), and had my minestrone. Ah, Spring in San Francisco (er, was that Winter?).
