One Potato, Two Potato


Onward and upward with my huge stash of bone broth. I’m using it everywhere, and THIS was unbelievably rich and delicious. Really a simple fix.

Saute onions and celery. Add the broth and thicken it with a slurry of milk and flour. Then add cubed leftover potato, a few tablespoons of roasted green chiles, and a splash of tomato salsa. Use whatever other seasonings float your boat. Shred up some sharp Chedder to sprinkle on top at serving time.

A fabulous accompaniment was the Parmesan toast crunchies. I sliced one of my herb buns very thinly, and covered the slices in butter and Italian herbs, then sprinkled on Parmesan, and toasted them in the toaster oven. If you like crunchy things, these are for YOU! The thin slices went fabulously with the creamy soup. We were sorry that I hadn’t made a larger volume of those beauties!

As you can see, I am still playing with the Berbere and dill as a useful combination. It sounds strange, but is surprisingly interesting to the palate.

Happily, there are about four cups of this potato soup left from yesterday, so I don’t need to think about lunch provisions today! So I’m off to Safeway to get their Friday specials and replenish our fresh produce larder, which is woefully lacking.

More soup and crunchies when I return!

    That is an interesting and delicious looking plate of food! I’ve never made bone broth, but every time you mention it I get a step closer to trying it.

  2. Comfort food at it’s best. πŸ™‚

      We are glad to have enough left for another round today! I have a huge hambone making broth overnight in my Crock-Pot, so I can see a split pea, lentil and barley soup in our future.

      • taphian says:

        I love German pea and lentil soups. Good idea, I must cook one sooner or later. Tomorrow we will have beef rolls filled with mustard, bacon and onions etc. I love the sauce.

      • judilyn says:

        Is there a German name for your dish?

      • taphian says:

        yes, it’s called Erbsensuppe (peasoup) and you put these wonderful German sausages inside, yum

      • judilyn says:

        I usually put Italian sausage in it. Gary likes sausage in just about anything! And everything. ;->

      • taphian says:

        Can’t you get some German sausages in the States? They are so good in pea- and lentil soups.

      • judilyn says:

        Yes, I suppose so, but probably not really authentic ones that have the right spices. Particularly not here in the desert!

      • taphian says:

        We say here “to send somebody into the desert” which means, where nothing is, no shops, no houses, nothing. Everything has good and bad sides, you have silence and beautiful desert flowers but shopping is really difficult, it seems. Of course it’s more easy for me to buy for instance peanut-butter etc. and things from Japan or Thailand etc. Maybe we are a bit spoilt here. πŸ™‚

        Oh, it isn’t THAT bad. I can get anything I want via UPS! We have three good grocery chains here, and want for very little, really. Our town is just over 40,000 people, so not really tiny, and Tucson is about 75 miles away. We don’t go there often, though, because we feel “crowded” with all those people. Tucson is where Gary went to college and we really like it up there, but as we age, it is harder to deal with the hustle bustle of the “big city”.

        I am formulating a food purchase blog post that combines locally-procured items I bought this week paired with things from a mail order that came on the same day as my shopping, so maybe you will find that interesting. It may take me a couple of days to pull it together.

      • taphian says:

        I can understand you. We live a bit outside at the border of Hamburg, amidst of woods and rather calm. But I have the underground very close and it takes 30 min. to go to the centre. But I nearly get claustrophobia and don’t feel good with all these people around me. Great that you can get everything via UPS. I never used it yet. Your new purchase blog sounds interesting. πŸ™‚

        I lived all of my life in two different really big cities until I came here almost 19 years ago. I never really thought about how oppressive it is to need to spend so much time (and fuel) going from one place to another in one’s daily life.

        I have been retired all the years I have lived here, so that makes a big difference, too.
