Tuscan chickpea soup (recipe in the comments from May 22, 2008)
Spinach salad with oranges and feta with sweet lemon dressing

Hot tea
Since rediscovering this soup back in May, we have been singing its praises. I have suggested it to a few friends and we made it once last fall when the blog was down. It is truly incredible and tonight was no exception. I also love this salad, which is just a bit of a departure from our standard salad greens and homemade dressing. The feat and orange really capture a flavor combo we enjoy. This is a perfect example of the importance for our level of variety of writing a good side pairing down. It's in cases like this, where I would never think of adding feta and orange to a salad on a normal night when I'm on autopilot, that such notes are godsends. Anyway, a great dinner all around!

Prep Notes
Difficulty: Easy
Chopping: Onion, garlic, Parmesan
Time: 30 minutes
Make ahead: This saves really well.

J: "I really think it's the balsamic that makes it for me."
M: "Excellent!"
