Soups & Sweet Treat 2.13.14

I enjoyed winter again this weekend!  My oldest daughter, along with almost 40 of her classmates from Champlain Elementary School, participated in the Penguin Plunge.  They raised $7500.00 for the Vermont Special Olympics.  Brave kids!  The sunshine and blue skies lured me outside on both Saturday and Sunday for my first cross country ski days of the season- beautiful! It sounds like there is a chance for more fresh snow Thursday into Friday.  I have yet (in three years) to have a snowstorm on Thursday.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that whatever precipitation comes our way will hold on until I am done delivering! 


Vegetarian Chili…a mix of beans, fresh ground chili powder & heartiness from bulgur.  Ingredients:  navy beans, black beans, ancho chiles, New Mexican Chilies, oregano, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, jalapenos, onions, garlic, cumin, soy sauce, bulgur, kosher salt & pepper.  Garnished w. fresh cilantro, lime, sour cream & cheese.  13. per quart served w. bread.  Vegetarian & Vegan (minus dairy garnishes).

Cheddar-Corn Chowder w. Bacon & Scallions…a favorite of many- a fully loaded chowder!  Ingredients:  bacon, onions, carrots, celery, yukon gold or red bliss potatoes, chicken stock, coriander, corn, cheddar cheese, whole milk, dash of worcestershire sauce, kosher salt & pepper.  Garnished w. scallions & bacon.  13. per quart served. bread.  Gluten-Free
