Got a late start, it is still simmering:
12 c chicken stock
Meat from 1 grilled split chicken breast, bone in, skin on
4 tomatoes, grilled
1-1/2 c corn (from the freezer, our sweet corn)
1 c celery
2 leeks, chopped (the celery, leeks, and carrots sauteed in butter until limp)
1/2 c carrot
4 c wild rice (3:1 wild rice to white, cooked with a mix of mushrooms, from the freezer)
splash of brandy
sprinkle of hot peppers
dash of liquid smoke
2 T of cream cheese
I'll probably add milk thickened with some flour when the flavors are married. Got the batteries charging so I can take a pic of the end product--eventually, either tonight or tomorrow.
PS--now that I've had my test cup, don't know if I will cream it or not...I like it like it is.
