#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!!!

Squash Stuffed with Mushrooms, Brown Rice, Pecans, and Dried Figs

I had leftover figs from when I made cheese stuffed figs.  I did not know what to do with them, until I found this recipe that originally had dried cranberries in it.  But I think figs are much tasty than cranberries, so I changed it.

#SundaySupper: Grilled Chicken Pita Sandwich

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week everyone is cooking from The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman.

This is crazy!  I improvised!  Normally, I strictly follow recipes.  I am just not confident that I can alter something and it will still taste good.  But today I did not have a recipe and so I was spontaneous.

AND IT WORKED!!!!!  Ok, to start for #sundaysupper we are making something from Katie Workman’s cookbook.  I don’t have the cookbook so I had to use one of the recipes that is online already.  She has a parsley, lemon, rosemary roast chicken recipe that I thought might taste good grilled.  Not to mention there is no way I am going to turn on the oven in this heat.  (Also, I used parsley instead of rosemary.  I forgot to buy rosemary.)

Angel Hair Pasta with Egg and Toasted Parsley Bread Crumbs

This was interesting to make.  It was my first time boiling eggs, to eat.  So, that had a little trial and error.  The end result was ok.  It needed a lot of parmesan cheese and black pepper for my taste.  But all in all a nice dish.
