When the head cold hits, I make soup!
That’s a lot of soup for a family of 3!
I don’t follow recipes when I cook unless I’m trying something new and even than, a recipe is a guideline.
How do I make a chicken and vegetable soup?
1. Take all the vegetables out of the fridge, countertop bowl and cupboard
2. Pick what you feel would work in a soup. This time it was: garlic, sweet onion, red onion, purple carrots, celeri, green beans, cauliflowers, red potatoes and tomatoes… I think! All fresh from our weekly farm basket!
3. Add chicken and some chicken broth.
4. Add all the herbs you like (and in my case this week, what I could smell… Remember head cold!)
Emily loved the soup!
Her words: “mom is that homemade cause it’s really good”
What about those beets you ask?
I realized we had many beets in the fridge when I took everything out for the soup… So I boiled them.
I’m not sure if Emily likes beets, she doesn’t ask for them and because I love beets so much, I never force anyone else to eat them.
I’m nice like that.
In our farm basket this week we had some nice chard so while Emily only wanted Mac N Cheese…
I let my cooking creativity go and made this…
A little butter, some sugar and a splash or 2 of apple cider vinegar
Lots of vitamin C in there.
I plated it with some left over rice we had from the night before
This could have fed 2 easily but Jon was working and Em was in paradise eating her Mac N Cheese.
I slowly ate the whole thing!
Is there a vegetable out there you can’t never have enough of?
