So, since I've been feeling much better, I made my way back into the kitchen, hellbent on whipping something up that would make him feel the same.
I love to cook, but in no way am I a genius with food. I have to follow recipes to the tee or all is lost.
I go through phases when it comes to my cook-crushes.
I love the things that Rosie comes up with, and have gotten some good stuff from Nicole, but most of the dishes I make come from Pinterest. This is actually where I found THE BEST food blog as far as easy recipes and DELICIOUS food are concerned. The Pioneer Woman, (otherwise known as Ree Drummond) is a genius. I adore her BBQ Comfort Meatballs and if you're feeling really naughty, her super simple recipe for "The Bread" tastes like candy.
So, when I needed an awesome recipe for soup I went no further than Dee's site and she definitely did not disappoint.
I went with her Italian Chicken Soup. It was SO easy and SO scrumptious.
(I said before that I rarely deviate from a recipe, and this is true execpt when it comes to laziness. Instead of making my own chicken broth with a huge chicken and 30 minutes worth of boiling, I bought a rotisseire chicken and a box of chicken broth. Sue me.)
My relatively healthier version of Dee's bread. Whole grain loaf and about a 1/4 of the butter.
If only you could smell this pot of goodness!
I added some shaved parmesan cheese and a swirl of Sriracha at the end and voila!
I'm hoping it will last for several days as lunch and an easy left over dinner choice this week!
