I've gotten to know some good people through this online journal. Deb at Kahakai Kitchen is one of those very nice people and this post is dedicated to her. I am looking forward to her returning to her blog, writing cool book reviews and hosting her famous Souper Sunday series again.
Now what else could I bring to nourish Deb but a big bowl of soup made with fresh veggies. Tuck in....it's hearty!
I make a different version of this soup not too long ago but this batch was a real treat. It was creamier but I know why - I added some half-n-half. Not a lot - but probably a good half cup. A version of this soup may be found HERE and it seems almost a cheat to be posting about this again but there are a few differences.
My veggies this time are celery, carrot, garlic, onion, zucchini and green beans. After adding flour to the cooked veggies I added that half a cup of half-n-half, some vegetable broth and Silk almond milk. Rice and potatoes were in the fridge but I opted for rice again. Liberally salt and pepper the soup, serve with a homemade loaf of French bread.
Bon appetit, Deb! If you need anything let me know. 😉
So besides making soup and bread, you know what else I've been doing. (besides reading) I have been crocheting hats. My granddaughter liked the gray one I made her and requested a pink one. This soft pink yarn was easier on the eyes than a hot pink color, so I am thankful she likes the softer tones. Next hat is in progress, a burgundy one that hopefully fits me.
Happy Tuesday to all. Deb, we will see you when you are feeling better! Aloha :-)
