Looking out now, you'd never know. The sun is shining and it warmed up quite a bit - which I wasn't totally expecting. Since it was cooler and rainy earlier, I thought it would be a good idea to make some soup. By the time it was done, it was warm and kind of humid and not exactly soup weather, but it was good regardless. :) And it felt good to make some real food because when I was cooking for one for a couple of weeks, I didn't make a whole lot. And now that I think about it, the only other thing I really made-made was soup, too - the zesty tomato soup I made one other time. This time, I made a tortellini soup - and used a recipe from allrecipes.com called Mushroom, Leek, Chicken Sausage Tortellini soup. It was delicious! I'm not going to repost the recipe here, because I pretty much followed it. Here are the only notes I have from it:
- I had some leftover beef broth, so I used up the last of that (2 c.) and did 4 c. of chicken broth
- The chicken sausage I had was some kind of spicy - and it added a lot of flavor to the soup. Really nice.
- The recipe says to add salt and pepper to taste -- I didn't add any, and it didn't need it. So don't add any until you taste your soup. You may not need it.
- For the hot sauce, we didn't have Tabasco, but I used Frank's Red Hot.
Give it a try. You can thank me later.
