Well after our Friday night spaghetti episode we have moved on~
We moved right on to bread bowls and Soup.
Do you make bread? Well that’s perfect because I don’t. Well, not in the traditional sense.
I have tried for years but it just never turns out as great as I want it to. So I have become dependant on a machine.
Yay for the invention of the bread maker!
While I am not a fan of bread baked in the machine I do love to use it on the “dough” setting.
I dump my ingredients in and in 1 1/2 hours the dough is ready to put on my pan. I let it rise on the stove top while the oven is warming up and then I pop it in the oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
So easy! You can do this ~ I know you can!
I use this yummy kind of sweet, white bread recipe. It is actually for dinner rolls. When I am making bread bowls I just make them a little bit larger. This particular recipe works perfect because it splits into 6 big rolls.
And this is the result….
The ingredients for this simple soup is as follows:
6-7 potatoes cooked,peeled and shredded
1 (16 oz) bag frozen broccoli
2 Cups chicken broth
1 1/2 Cup milk
1 can evaporated milk
2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
1/2 lb. cubed and diced melting cheese
Cook your frozen broccoli just until thawed. Drain and put in blender. (I leave a little water so it will blend better) Warm milk, broth and evaporated milk in large stockpot. Add potatoes, broccoli and seasoning.I also add a little cornstarch to thicken. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add cheese at end.
When I make this I have enough for 2 meals.
If your not a fan of broccoli it could be made as potato soup.But if I chop the broccoli fine enough the non-broccoli lovers in my family like it. At least that’s what they say. ha ha!
On a different note….
As you know I am a baby at blogging…well maybe pubescent by now… but I was wondering…Could you give me some feedback on what you like to read about? Is it is more stories, or inspiration, or recipes????
I started this blog primarily because it’s a great way to store memories, stories and pictures for future reference but I am also aware that it is a public blog and at least 3 people read it every day….so I want to hear from the 3 of you what you like best….maybe I can do more of that or less of this:)
Okay your turn….
