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.
Our Cookbooks rock!
What you're saying..
Oh my goodness! How did I miss Kitchen Scoop until today? Have had Desperation Dinners for years -- we spend 6 weeks in Florida every winter and it is the only cookbook I take with me. Brunswick Stew is fabulous and tastes like it cooked for hours! Flake chicken is a favorite and I'm saving the black bean soup recipe forever!
Growing up in eastern NC, I know all about shelling butter beans and field peas and aren't they good in the winter?! Keep the good stuff going and I'll keep reading!
