Welcome to Foodie Friday.
I've got a lot cooking this week because my 84 year old mom is visiting. On tonight's menu: chicken and dumplings, salad, cornbread, and bread machine Cinnabons.
Earlier this week I made potato soup.
I don't have a recipe, just a procedure:
Potato Soup (the easy way)
Into a pot, add potatoes, peeled and cubed; chopped celery and onions (1 cup each--I always sautee the vegetables in butter before I add the potatoes), and a large box chicken stock. Salt and pepper to taste. Boil the potatoes over a medium flame until they are fork-tender. Remove pan from heat. Run a potato masher over the potatoes. Add heavy cream--whisk until the mixture becomes smooth and soup like.
Garnish with fresh parsley or thyme. (My mother uses a bacon garnish.)
Serve with crusty, homemade bread.
This is a delicious one-pot meal, perfect for a rainy March night.
The Cinnabon dough is ready! Time to make the filling. (Earlier, when I added the ingredients to the bowl of the bread machine, I failed to add the flour. Thankfully, the dough cycle hadn't gotten too far along, and I was able to remedy the oversight.
My family has been teasing me all afternoon about flourless bread! :-)
