    Soup season

    I love soup, and I love making soup, so I'm always glad this time of year when it's soup-making season

    Just made a huge pot last night, ended up making another meal while it was getting put together, but it's worth it.

    Saute and add to simmering water:
    Potatoes,
    Garlic, onion, carrots, celery,
    Red bell pepper, swiss chard (red, yellow, and white, from the garden), mushrooms, tomatoes (store-bought and a handful of the last yellow pears from the garden).
    Couple cups of brown rice, little bit of wild rice.

    Few pinches of salt, tons of green/white/black pepper, olive oil, couple glugs of red wine.

    Superb. Ended up setting the massive pot out in my carport on the cement steps to cool down before putting it in the fridge.

    Enough to last several days.
    Great for dunking cheese sandwiches, I also like heating it up and adding a fish filet or some shrimp.
    Takes a long time to make but very straightforward, and saves a lot of time in meal prep down the road.

    I make a pretty good spicy tortilla soup with shredded turkey or chicken,& I fry my own corn tortilla chips to put in it.

    Nah, wine's for cooking. It took quite a few High Lifes to get everything squared away though.

    Hey Dan,
    Few things beat home-made tortilla chips. I'm sure that's a damn fine soup.

    Also did an awesome chicken 'n dumplings last weekend. Started with an oven roaster chicken, seasoned, convection roasted, took off the meat, broke up all the carcass...tossed in salted water with some onions, celery tops, some branches of thyme....slow simmered that for the whole day to make the broth.

    Did up the rest of the thick soup and dumplings at the end of the afternoon.

    This past weekend did a Shepards Pie.

    Next weekend...gonna do a chicken Adobo (Philippean recipe)

    Anyone ever had a pasty?

    Pretty simple but throw some brown gravy or ketchup (or both) and you have a great meal.

    Doh, you reminded my my soup has a ton of rosemary!
    I took down the spice jar to hit up the tomatoes. Forgot it had a flip lid (beer), unscrewed the top and dumped about a teaspoon of rosemary.

    Worked out fine though

    Rosemary is damn good. I love the line out of FireFly (awesome series) Cooked up a bunch of tomato slices.
    The important thing is the spices. A man can live on packaged food from here 'til Judgment Day if he's got enough rosemary.
    Basil's damn good too, smells great. Love it on eggs, and whatever you call tomatoes/mozz/basil

    Must-have for me in soups and stews
