What's for dinner? Heaven in a bowl.
What do you want for dinner? When I ask that question, do you think I really get an answer? Something good is always on the menu. What? Is that the standard answer? I am still waiting for, "Let's take Mom out for dinner!"
Yeah that is a lot of soup, enough to feed an army.
So judging by Wednesdays post, you guys want a recipe for my (hmm) potato soup. Here you go, in my not so recipe
mind...Cook up a bunch of chopped potatoes. How many? I don't know,
depends on how much soup you are making. If you like celery, chop that
up too and cook with potatoes, about 1/4 to the amount of potatoes. Fry up some bacon and onions, yes you
have to chop it up! If you are a vegetarian skip the bacon part. I think I
added garlic too. How much? that depends on you. OK, Bacon is fried with
onion, etc. NOT TO FRIED! You want it translucent. Now you want to add
some flour to all that yummy fat. OK...Vegetarians, don't be offended!
Do your thing here with mushrooms and butter that is yummy too. Potatoes are just about
finished, yippee!You need that water to add to the thick flour paste you
made. Did I mention that? Gradually add some of that water, OK you need some milk too and cream if you have it, until you get the right consistency. You do know that cream and butter makes everything so much better. (Yeah, yeah, yeah) Chop up some
broccoli, throw that in. Salt...I love pepper...simmer, simmer... You
got the idea? Yeah, cheese as a garnish on top is good! BTW: This is my sons Potato
soup recipe. I think I got it right, he will let us know if I didn't. On second thought, blogger is not his hangout place so I can do what I want with his soup recipe and he will never know. I love soup, do you? What is your favorite kind?
There is a holiday soon, right? Soup works. Minnie, next week in case you are wondering.
