After watching a Julia Child video on
making soups and salads, we got hungry.
We got hungry for soup. So we remembered
a beef vegetable stew in the freezer. Got out
a loaf of bread and voila. Dinner.
I learned a few tips :
~~cooked rice in a blender
with chicken stock blended to add to make
a chicken soup creamed
~~ when making potato salad , let the hot
potatoes rest in a covered pot for 15 mins.
This helps this stay firm.
~~ making beef stock: you put your bones
and onion and carrots in a pan in the oven
to brown them for 20 mins. or so. Then
put the juice in the stock water with seasoning.
~~ she measured in the palm of her hands at times.
I like that!
