When it is cold or windy or rainy, ok I guess anytime except a hot summer day, I love soup!! My ultimate comfort food, well except for some dark chocolate. We have been working an a new soup book for my bookstore, a compilation of yummy soup techniques. This is what we did yesterday.
To our large crockpot we added
- diced raw potatoes
- chunks of broccoli tops
- 1 package of cream cheese cut in chunks
- a package of cooked bacon pieces
- enough whole (at our house fresh) milk to cover it all
- a dash or two of soul seasoning (healthy seasoned salt sort of)
we turned it on high and ran out the door to go get a horse, about 3-4 hours later we returned and served it up with a half cup grated cheese and a dollop of sour cream topping each serving. It was INCREDIBLE!!! I cannot wait to make it again and will probably add more veggies.I will have to add this to my bless-the-cook.com site
Soups surely do work for me on Wednesday!
