In fact my very first notion of having a blog was to make it a soup blog and post the recipes. Never happened.
For a long time Allan made the soup and approached the making thereof with a scientific method - he read all about the balance of flavours and the needs for acid and salt etc etc and "we" learned a lot of neat tricks and tips- like squeezing the juice of a lemon into a veggie soup (aka an acid) really brightens the soup and brings forward the flavours.
Then Allan went back to University and I was handed the soup pot.
Houston....we have a problem.
For a while I was rescued by the Soup Fairy who wanted to make the soup for the group and faithfully did so every week for a few months.....long enough for me to not be so freaked out about running solo on Tuesdays.
My dear friend JB knew all my culinary skills were taxed enough producing soup that she provided dessert for months and as a champion baker we were all so blessed by her contribution.
Tonight I have a Board Meeting so I sat down to send a message to cancel soup group when Lindsay piped up that she would be happy to host the Group! Wow!
Another soup maker is born.
She and I got most of the prep for Broccoli Cheddar soup done last night and I am sure she will finish it off with flair tonight.
