1/8/11 Saturday What's Cooking Today?

I left that gorgeous confetti soup in the fridge overnight. I'm having some for breakfast. I'll have a taster cup and decide if it wants to be played with.

What are you cooking today?

Have a pot of beans on the stove with the hambone from earlier this week. Maybe some cornbread with it.

It really isn't confetti soup any more. You should make it yours by giving your wonderful creation a name of it's own.

I am going to be slicing flank steak thin on the bias then marinate in oil (probably a combo of EVOO & grapeseed or flaxseed Oil), fresh grated garlic & ginger, soy sauce, hot chili oil & ground peppercorns, then use it to make the beef and broccoli stir fry. Plain or fried rice on the side.

Well, surprisingly, when I tasted the soup, it said cream me. I did and you'll imagine my surprise when it looked just like your recipe! It is just a smidgeon darker, but a snapshot would look just like your picture.

So.. it is still Confetti Soup. Obviously it lends itself to different varieties like pork in addition to turkey or chicken but if it looks like Confetti Soup....

PS: Yum on the flank steak prep. (*getting drool rag ready*)

Well, obviously Confetti soup is on for lunch, but I'm thinking tonight about more of those nice scallops. The butter garlic poached scallops were so good, and I still have butter garlic left over....
