Personally I like the old staple of Its a Wonderful Life as well as Love, Actually and A Christmas Carol with Alistair Sims. We also watched a non traditional “Christmas “ movie Die Hard. Yippe Ki-Ya!
Over a year ago Debra at Eliot’s Eats hosted for Love, Actually and I participated with my favorite storyline, Jamie & Aurelia’s. Without looking at my offering then I laughed once I chose to make a Portuguese soup. Again. Ha!
This time it’s not a Fish Chowder but a Portuguese classic called Caldo Verde, a pantry soup for hard times. I found the recipe at The Guardian in Nigel Slater’s column. Check out the article and recipe HERE. A British cook inspired a Portuguese Soup for a London based Christmas movie. Brilliant.
Photo credit as mine is awaiting final preparations & I wanted to link up early. More photos to be added later. Hot soup is perfect when you are dealing with dental Issues!
Basic ingredients of chopped potatoes, garlic, kale (I’ll use spinach), broth, salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Since it’s a soup made in hard times the original uses water but broth makes it richer. Also a few chunks of sausage.
