|My two ears of corn.|
I tried Googling a recipe for it, but have you noticed lately how difficult it is to actually get to a recipe when you do a search? Multiple screen loads, requests for my Facebook log in or to create an account, sifting through yet more articles, and I gave up. I really don't need a recipe-I've been whipping up batches of soup for decades, so will do what I always do, improvise with what I have on hand.
|My veggies are sauteing in butter.|
Once the veggies are soft, I added two cups of chicken broth, triple strong made with a three to one ration of chicken bouillon, simmer another 10 minutes, then stirred in three potatoes, diced up, and simmered until soft, but not mushy. By now, my soup is getting quite thick, so I'm adding four cups of whole milk, more salt and pepper to taste, and the kernels from my two large ears of corn, cooked earlier in the week when our eyes for sweet corn were bigger than our stomachs. I'll simmer it all, taste testing to see if it needs anything more of anything. Delish.
Here is the finished product. While too hot for soup, I still had to taste test it and I proclaim it tasty. DD#1 had a couple bites as well. This was just a small sauce bowl, but you can imagine a nice big bowl with some crusty bread. I hope it thaws well-I've never frozen milk or cream based soups, but if t gets to thick, I can add a bit more milk or makeshift broth. What about you? How are you starting the seasonal transitions with your menu?
