Hot Bean Soup to Go! -- El Dia de Los Muertos ETSOOI

Nothing like hot soup at the end of a chilly day with incessant rain...

I suppose it should really say "Los Dios de los Muertos" since my Hispanic friends celebrate it on November 1st and 2nd. Today, they remember "los angelitos"--the innocents--those family members who passed away as children. Tomorrow, they will remember and celebrate the lives of the adult dead.

Bean soup makes me remember my deceased Mother. As a child, I despised it, but as an adult, I came to love it, and every time I have it, I remember what it smelled like as it simmered on the back of my Mother's stove.
