I’ve indulged my need to make myself busy in the kitchen today. I would traditionally be knee deep in Christmas cookies and casseroles and rolls. Life is a little bit simpler now. A little bit quieter. Jonathan had a friend over. Dylan : ) Nice young man. We had a sleepy morning with pancakes…then they spent their time playing video games…and football in the yard : )
So I puttered in the kitchen. Something a little bit bready sounded good. And something a little bit creamy???? Don’t mind if I do.
Homemade cream of mushroom soup. Chopping and dicing and then saute. Then a nice long simmer. Strangely enough…I don’t like mushrooms….but I love cream of mushroom soup. I’m so conflicted lol. For those of you worrying that we’ve fallen off the wagon….don’t panic…it’s vegan : )
A lovely foccacia to dunk in the soup. Isn’t bread baking in the oven the most divine aroma a house can have???
The recipe makes 2 foccacias. The little bread nugget on the top is what’s left of the first one 5 minutes after it came out of the oven. Did I mention we had 3 teenaged boys today ??? Happy children with full bellies is just the best blessing you could ask for.
So as you can tell…I’m having a wonderful day….hope you are too. Huggs G
