Featured Recipe: Cream Of Vegetable Soup for Two
Several years ago I read a report that more people cook between Thanksgiving day and New Years day than any other season of the year. It’s not surprising, really. Planning a special menu this time of year is fun and festive.
But it’s not the special menu that stresses me out. It’s dinner tonight! It seems I get even more desperate around those big “cooking” days than I do on the big day itself. I feel as if I spend so much time planning what that special meal will be, dinner rolling up to the big night suffers.
Today’s recipe for a super-quick Cream of Vegetable Soup is just the ticket we need for a stress-free mid-week dinner. It’s sized for two, although easily doubled or tripled if need be. It flies together start to finish in just 15 minutes and it will soothe the soul and feed hungriest.

What you're saying..
My husband grew up in Michigan and his mother was originally from the hills of Kentucky. I first had Chocolate Gravy one winter when she was visiting. Growing up in the South, too, I was surprised that I had never had it nor even heard about it. Anyway it was rich and delicious and she served it over hot, flaky biscuits.
My husband told me that when he and his cousin were running cross country in high school, before each Saturday race, his mother would make them biscuits and chocolate gravy. Now thanks to Cheap. Fast. Good! I am preparing your version of biscuits and chocolate gravy. Except now instead of heading to a cross country race we will be headed to our son's swim meet. Thanks for helping me carry on a family tradition.
