Post Numero Uno

Once upon a time, there was a sadly neglected blog. So neglected, it's author decided it was time to stat fresh. So a new blog was started. It's name came from one of her favorite meals: Everything Soup. Take everything left in the fridge from the week, and make soup out of it, no matter the weather. Three different meats? Ginger Carrots? Limp celery? Parmesan Rind? Spaghetti Sauce? In it goes!! A few spices and herbs, a little stock (whatever's on hand) and Voila! Dinner is served with some crusty bread and a green salad. Her life is a little like that, everything gets tossed in together, and all of the ingredients fight to get to the top of the pot.

Tonight, however, the leftovers do not become soup. Leftover grilled chicken is baking in the oven with BBQ sauce, a little honey and some coriander along with some thin sliced potatoes layered with leftover cheese fondue, onions, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Served with a simple green salad, choice of dressing. Yum! The small one will be having chicken chunks, and veggies with cereal... Well, she'll think it's yum, even if you or I don't. There will probably be leftover chunks to make the dog happy. Dessert you ask? Homemade Spice Ice Cream, simple vanilla with the addition of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Maybe a little caramel sauce?
