Soups & Sweet Treat 5.26.11

While the sun may not be shining quite as much as we would like it IS getting warmer.  After a warm day, tucking into a hearty bowl of hot soup may not be the first thing on your mind.  So, as the season starts to change I will be featuring more and more soups that maybe eaten hot or cold as well as soups from countries where the climate is predominantly warm.  If they like to eat a warm bowl of soup why not us too? 

 I am getting closer to being able to buy directly from some local farms.  When that starts to happen more and more of the soups will be based on local, seasonal ingredients.  I am also toying with the idea of the occasional side or main dish salad….I would love any comments & or feedback on that!

I will not be making soup on Thursday June 2nd.  An old & close friend is visiting from California and there is an annual dinner event @ my oldest child’s school.  Keep your eye out for June 9th soups & sweet…they will be posted on 6.3.

One more business matter…I have been working with a friend that does marketing.  She has created a wonderful logo for me which will soon be turned into business cards & stickers!  In the process I have purchased my domain name.  It is now  No more having to enter all the extra WordPress stuff!  I can also be found on Facebook and very soon Twitter as well.

NOW for the soups!!

Mexican Chicken Pozole Verde…a variation of the traditional hominy-based Mexican stew that derives much of its flavor from tomatillos, cilantro & green chiles.  This soup has a kick but a mild one!  Ingredients: chicken stock, water, hormone & antibiotic free chicken breasts, tomatillos, spanish onions, poblano chiles, jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, oregano, celery, hominy, cumin & corn.  Garnished w. tortilla chips, sliced radishes, fresh cilantro, lime, sour cream & scallions.

13. quart gluten-free (minus the tortilla chips for garnish)

Roasted Beet Borsht…Ingredients: Local beets, thyme, olive oil, onions, carrots, garlic, veggie broth, red wine vinegar,honey, granny smith apples.  Garnished with sour cream, fresh dill & diced cucumber.  Maybe eaten cold or warm.  This is a smooth borscht with the diced cucumber adding some crunch.

13. per quart  gluten-free, vegetarian & vegan (minus the sour cream garnish)

Sweet Treat: The much raved about Chewy Chocolate Cookies!  If you are a chocolate fan and have not tried these now is the time.   Addictive!!

1. per cookie

Have a great weekend!
