Chicken Korma

I was given this recipe by a really good friend of mine.  I love getting handwritten  recipes from people.  It feels so authentic and personal to me.  These are recipes that people share with their loved ones.  And then they took the time to sit down and write it.  I adore handwriting.  Mine is not the best, but if I write very slowly I can produce something I am proud to share.  Also, since people so rarely give handwritten recipes anymore, it feel extra special to me!

#SundaySupper: Spanish Garlic Soup

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back super around the family table in every home.  This week Susan at The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen is hosting and the theme is dishes that keep you warm.

I have a wonderful book called The Soup Bible.  When sunday supper decided on this theme I went straight for that book.  There is a section called winter warming soup!  Perfect!  I want to try all of them, but this one really stuck out to me.  It has a rather interesting process.  It is very simple.  However, it gets unique at the end.  You ladle the soup into single serving bowls and then crack an egg into it and put bread on top of that and bake it for a few minutes to poach the egg.  It’s brilliant and makes for a full meal.

#SundaySupper: Chicken Chowder

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week the theme is comfort food.

Whenever I think of comfort food I always think of soup.  Soup always makes things better.  If I have a cold or if I am homesick I want soup.  Soup always makes me feel better; always warms my soul.  I use to have to go out for soup.  But I am working on it.  I have been collecting soup recipes and slowly but surely attempting to make them.  Some times they are horrible, but lately I have been making some really delicious soup!!!

I did not know what to make this week.  I wanted something easy, fast and new.  I just did not know what to do.  I was uninspired.  AND THEN #sundaysupper happened and the theme was 5 ingredients or less and I thought that round up would have something I could make.

Sweet and Spicy Mushroom Stir Fry

 

I love this so much!  It has so much flavor.  I have never made mushrooms that taste so good. And you have to have rice or something to soak up all of the wonderful sauce.  It takes a little while to make.  But it isn’t hard, just a little time consuming.

Asian-Marinated Baked Chicken

Apparently I send very business like texts.  I get to the point.  Texting takes too much work to be frilly.  Who, what, where, when and why was it funny?  Those are normally the questions answered by my texts.
