Dinner tonight!: Hearty vegetable soup
If you're looking for a simple dinner that will help to stave off the chilly wet weather, look no further than Coral Tree Cafe's vegetable soup. Fresh vegetables simmered with barley in a hearty broth, it makes for a perfect one-dish meal. What's more, you might not even notice it's vegetarian. (Of course, you can add some meat or doctor the ingredients to suit your taste.) You can find the recipe here.
