Whisk....about tomato soup, also something nice to have on hand in the pantry during the winter. Have you by chance ever tried the canned Progresso Tomato Basil soup? It's pretty darned tasty. [/QUOTE]

Cheryl, thanks for the Progresso rec. Campbells tastes too sweet, Don't know if they changed the recipe or my tastes change over time.

If you have a La Madeline restaurant in your area, they sell their tomato-basil soup in jars at the restaurants. It is wonderful.

You're welcome, Whisk. For those grilled cheese sandwich nights when you're snowed in and want a quickie canned tomato soup, it puts Campbell's to shame.

I used the ham bone & scraps of ham from Christmas and made navy bean soup in the IP. I made corn bread in the IP, too.


Finishing up cookies & fudge for dessert/snack.

Anyway, it was still good eats.
Looks delish! I've been craving that as well.

I mixed together leftover spinach-artichoke dip and creamy salmon and peas, warmed it up and served it over spinach-ricotta ravioli. Roasted asparagus and toasted homemade bread finished the dish.

We took the kids out to their birthday dinner tonight to Michael Symon's "Mabel's BBQ" restaurant. It was good, but probably just a one time spot. It's very meat-centric - few side dish choices and not a lot of veggie things. That is so different than how Himself and I eat at home! As soon as I got back to Loverly's, I grabbed an apple!

I had a strange but good soup from a nearby deli last night at work. The cook said he didn't have enough ingredients to make enough to fill the terrine of any one soup, so he made tomato/basil, bean, clam, and vegetable chowder.

It was very filling, and very good.

We had prime rib, our mushroom bread pudding (sans the mushroom due to a severe allergy, with black garlic as a substitute), and a spinach/new potato salad with a walnut, onion, bacon, balsamic, walnut oil and bacon fat dressing topped with blue cheese, and Buche de Noel for dessert. It was our Christmas with DD and DGDs, plus a couple of guests. Didn't take a picture of dinner, they were already teasing me for taking pictures of my cake, but I wanted a picture of it even if I didn't post it anywhere. I'm proud of it darn it!
