I love the minestrone pic from Foodista's blog of the day a while back. Just saw it retweeted. I'm a little late to the party! Lovely illustrations on this UK site as well: http://www.onehandedtoast.com/minestrone/

Great picks, but this recipe from the Umami Mart blog has me inspired: http://blog.umamimart.com/2013/01/japanify-nishin-soba/<br /><br />California's Central Coast is still hovering in the 70's, so I can get away with stew for dinner!
