Egg Noodle soup with Turkey meatballs

I know, I know. I am never here.

But I threw this soup together in 30 minutes and it came out excellent, so I thought I would share.

Egg Noodle Soup with turkey meatballs

12 cups of water

5 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced

3 packets of dry French Onion soup

2 beef bouillon

dry egg noodles (as much as desired)

12 frozen turkey meatballs

Salt and pepper to taste

Dried parsley to taste

Put everything in a large pot in high heat. Bring it to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

Josh said that with a little bit of green Louisiana Gold hot sauce it tasted like hot and sour soup. Maybe next time I will try with mushrooms and tofu.


why I like vegetable oil

Why was I removing floor tape? Well!  Continue reading

Some things I am interested in making

… when I am not lazy and just making enough spaghetti sauce and pasta to get us through until after Christmas.

Peter Berley’s Leek Soup with Peas and Sauerkraut

China Forbes Quinoa with Avocado

Swiss Chard, Tamarind and Chickpea Stew

Anything exciting you’ve bookmarked for later?

bringin’ soupy back (again)

Thing the first: my favourite thing about Italy was not the gelato (although it was delicious). It was also not the pasta (and I think I ate more fish than pasta anyway). It was not the pizza. It was the mozzarella di Bufala Campana, which has ruined most other cheese (and definitely any other mozzarella; you may as well be eating snot if you’re going to bother with something that substandard) for me.

Thankfully, we can acquire actual mozzarella here, so I am not feeling too terribly bereft.

Otherwise, it’s decidedly autumn here.  Continue reading

Trying to drag myself out of pregnancy induced nausea and lack of motivation hell… with soup!

So yeah, I disappeared, hopefully not taking this place down with me.  Minsies tried valiantly to carry on without me, and I salute her for her efforts!  I’ve not been thinking of food, or much of anything besides how soon can I craw into bed and die for a couple months now, because of the new addition to my body.  It’s been unpleasant.  However, we seem to be turning a bend, and with the help of apples (Baby loves some apples.  Feeling sick?  Give the baby an apple and much is better!  It’s obviously a weirdo, but the farmer’s market loves my new apple habit) I can think of food now.  However, I will not be posting apple recipes, baby insists I eat them as fast as they can go into my body, so no cooking there.
