A New Soup

squash soup

There was one slice of pizza left from the luncheon the other day, so I heated that for DH to eat while I made a real lunch.

I didn’t have any leftover meat, so I made tiny little meatballs from some organic ground meat and browned them up. While that was happening, I raided the refrigerator for whatever was available. That happened to be some stir fried vegetables, about three cups of very thick chicken broth, the rest of the Israeli cous cous, brown rice and wild rice dish, and – at the suggestion of DH – I tossed in a generous amount of cubed butternut squash.

Not sure why I’ve never done that before – it was totally delicious. Will do that again as often as possible. We sprinkled some grated Parmesan (from the deli, not the green can from the grocery aisle) on it. Lemon juice would have really made it sing, but I didn’t have any lemons.

soup bread

Oh, yeah. There was also some bread involved here. After making the two pizzas yesterday, there was a bit o’ dough leftover, so I had dragged out a tiny bread pan that is meant to be used in a toaster oven to accommodate this pint-sized morsel. Lightly toasted and buttered, it provided a satisfying crunch with the soup. Fresh red peppers and tomatoes rounded out the meal.

    Dang, girl. You’re getting too far ahead of me. I still have the ingredients on hand to make split pea soup but so far haven’t started on it.

    That looks delightful! Even DH said so, and that was AFTER he knew it had rice in it!

      Eeewwwww, rice! And brown rice at that! There is about three quarters of a cup of the finished soup still in the refrigerator !!! The broth was really special, too. Nice and gelatinous. I left the bones from four chicken legs and about four cups of water in my tiny Crock-ette overnight, et voilá – broth!

    Yes great idea, looks delicious! I like this idea for when I have a little of this, a little of that, etc. I’m going to try this, I always have little baggies of leftovers in the fridge. Usually I throw them all in a green salad – I love that, too. 🙂

      My New Orleans boy will eat anything that is contained in a bowl and looks like “soup”. Although recently, he has become a salad fan, too. Don’t be afraid to try almost anything that appeals to you. The worst that can happen is that you won’t like it.

    That bread looks so fresh and tasty, I wish I could slice it and slather some butter on it. I love fresh bread…hope the pizza party was a hit. Enjoy your evening!
