Mushroom soup is very hard to make photogenic..but it's beauty lies within:)
Well we are bracing ourselves for arctic air this weekend..so more wood will be brought in today..and I have a chicken carcass et al..simmering on the stove for stock and soup etc..
We had tulips and still do..they just make the sunroom pop..and kitchen..I love tulips and how they droop and look like graceful dancers taking a bow.
My trick to keep them..tricks..when you get them home..snip about an inch off the bottoms..remove all leaves that will be under water..replace water every day..I use a ladle..yes..because that bowl is huge..maybe leave a couple of inches and add fresh..yes that's worth it to me♥
I hate the plant food..and stopped using a copper penny yrs ago..made no difference..these tips are what work here..
We had a few other colder days..and I made that Roasted mushroom white bean soup.I love it..not rich like the others I make ,and I love the roasted flavor..You can find the recipe here..I have been making it for years..However I DO drain my beans..I hate that thick slimey liquid lol..and you season to taste..add a splash of heavy cream if you want..read her directions carefully and make sure your mushrooms are well roasted:)
I was in a mushroomy day..see the little crescent up there?Under the Eiffel tower:)?
I had a sweet sweet client 100 years ago..I had a few:)Her kids were adorable..they would put on their scout and brownie outfits to show me♥They were young..she moved back to England..I wonder if she is still there..
anyway one day I was there and she served me those little mushroom bites..the recipe is typed up..above..as she gave it to me..
I must must mush share my original mushroom roll recipe from Jehane Benoit one day..Caroline and I are nuts about them..
I have been baking bread..this one from a great book I received..Josey Baker...real name)..I am always loving new recipes..my starter is still being worked on LOL.:)
Nancy sent me Mary Oliver's book..lovely essays to read here and there♥
