It's been a while since I posted from my "Gem of a Cookbook."
Since it's in the teens here and we've had PLENTY of snow, I'm in the mood for some soup. My GH cookbook assures me that I can make the soup from scratch (following their recipes, of course), or just open up a can.
What's fresh and different is that there is a nice list of garnishes!
"For that finishing touch, top soup with one of these:"
- Slivered almonds
- Crisp ready-to-eat cereal
- Whipped cream plus horse-radish
- Browned onion rings
- Cut-up olives
- Thin lemon slices
- Salted whipped cream
- Paper-thin carrot or radish slices
- Thin celery rings
"If you prefer to serve at-table style, don't forget those attractive pottery bowls and individual casseroles, which can make a meal-in-a-dish soup and occasion."
I'm eyeing up a nice potato soup, myself. Or perhaps something full of beans and vegetables. Slow cooked, of course...
