It’s the FINAL count down!(Can you hear me singing in my raspy, rugged , hair band voice?)
I just can’t get this song out of my head today.
Must be BECAUSE I am on to the the FINAL four! The final four recipes that is…
I feel like Rocky. Unfortunately, when I look in the mirror lately I look like Rocky. Before he got all in shape and stuff. I have taken to wearing grey sweats alot, and now that I think of it I’ve been saying “YO” quite often.
“YO, pass the fried chicken” “YO, get me the bacon grease” “YO slap me some butter in the pan there child”
Yes I am almost done….it’s sort of bittersweet. AAh, Ok I’m not gonna get all weird on ya. Let us move on to my latest modus aperandi….concoction, recipe or what have you.(British accent needed)
Todays recipe from The Pioneer Woman Cooks Sherried Tomato Soup.
It could be this delightful ingredient that has caused my need for sweatpants…
Don’t get me wrong…I am not one to leave out the butter. I am not a skimper on my fat. But I did have to do a quick check and make sure it was Ree Drummonds cookbook I was cooking through and not Paula Deens. It only used 6 tablespoons of butter, but of course I found a use for the other 2!
Then there is the matter of this….heavy whipping cream…
I tried my hand at being a Master Barista with the tomato soup…
I see no evergreen trees or hearts, but it does look like someone opening their mouth and popping a powdered donut in! Oh maybe there IS a heart up there at the top.
I used the extra 2 tablespoons of butter on a french baguette, then I sprinkled my fave season salt on there, stuck it under the broiler on HI for about 2 minutes. DON’T walk away, get on the phone or start helping your kid with his spelling or you will have raccoon food! Keep an eye on them. They brown up quick.
This salty, buttery bread is perfect with this slightly sweet, very rich soup.
I couldn’t help myself I had to spread a healthy portion of Chevre on my bread…
Otherwise known as goat cheese….I was hoping not to scare some of you goat-milkaphobics away, by showing you how amazingly yummy this looks and IS! So perfect for dipping, who needs a spoon?
Have you found these AMAZING spices in your grocery store yet? They are LIFESAVERS! I love them and will never ever live with out them. They are essential to life on earth as I know it. These freeze dried spices are so close to fresh it’s scary.
