Soup on Tuesday is winding down, as winter is winding down.
After dinner tonight, I put away my snowflake plates and winter mugs and February hearts. My thoughts are turning toward spring. And even though we have had quite the mild winter here in the Mid-Atlantic, there is just something about spring breezes and buds and blooming things and green grass and singing birds.
However, the calendar says it's still winter, and I had a tempting soup recipe that I have been wanting to try. So this afternoon, the rich aroma of simmering chicken and root vegetables and herbs tantalized. Then Kati popped some Cheddar Dill Muffins (recipe below) into the oven (more delicious smells), and we were waiting impatiently for the dinner hour to arrive!
I must tell you that the soup got mixed reviews. Kati and I thought it was scrumptious! When asked, Ron confessed that chicken soups are not his favorite. (I knew that, but thought that he would like the turnip and parsnips, as well as the creamy broth in this recipe.) And Bekah? She said that the white things were "weird" and she couldn't find a piece of chicken that suited her and she didn't like the broth. (I guess she liked the carrots?)
Everyone raved about the muffins. Kati strikes again!
