Olive oil
6 cloves garlic

Bay leaf
1/2 tsp paprika
4 cups water or stock(I used vegetable stock)
Fresh Parsley, Pepper and salt, to taste.

Saute garlic in olive oil for a few minutes, Add all of the other ingredients and simmer for about 20 minutes. Then process it with a hand blender or food processor to your desired consistency. Done. It is good stuff. Gonna eat it with some crusty bread that is almost out of the oven.
Sounds yummy. I may just make this. Oh phooey, it will have to wait for another day. I'm out of fresh parsley and DH and I both have the dreaded lurgy and won't be going outside, especially with a snow storm starting.

Fried Spanish rice. Between the durum sesame bread with cheese and salami for brunch and the cheese and chicken stock in the Spanish rice I think we had enough protein for today.

You're eating CANADIANS???? Um...maybe I won't be visiting anytime soon!

Dinner tonight will be a lovely sandwich on the bus. I'm off to visit my sister and since the weather is going to be crap I'm bussing it.

I'm thinking chicken nuggets and fries. I have some corn nuggets that I may fry up as well.

I'm making French onion soup. I'm following the recipe in Julia Child's The Way to Cook. I'm following it to the letter, except for the the gratiné part. I'm using store bought whole grain wheat baguette instead of homemade French bread and I don't have any Swiss cheese (which Swiss?) or Jack, so I will probably substitute some gouda.
