buckytom, tried your recipe last nite and was great. Sure smelled the house up. The chorizo was really spicy is that the way it always is? I loved all the onions, carrots, and potatoes together. Made enough for all of them to get good helping. I will go through this list and try all of them. I love the kale and tastes very good. Thanks for sharing.

hi itk, i'm glad you liked it. it is a very hearty soup, for those cold and damp irish evenings on the northwest coast.
i've found that browning the chorizo intensifies it's flavors, so it must have been somewhat spicey to begin with.
did you follow the recipe exactly, or did you tweak anything? i love to hear about improvements.
sorry about the smell. i love stinky food. half the flavor of a dish comes from your nose...

You sure said a mouthful. I do love that recipe and I did it exactly the way you said. It is a keeper so we'll be thinking of you when we eat it. Having the kale in it really was surprise. Thanks buckytom.

I posted a recipe for Olive Gardens Tuscan soup which is a chicken stock base with Kale, sausage, bacon, potatoes and cream. It is wonderful.

I use kale in place of spring greens in soups and chicken casseroles.

I like to serve duck breasts or darne of salmon on a bed of kale.

1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic crushed garlic clove
7oz curly kale
Juice of half a lemon

Heat the oil in a large sauté pan.
Add the crushed garlic, and cook for one minute, then add the kale, and fry for 4-5 minutes, until softened (keep stirring whilst the kale softens). Add the lemon juice and toss, to combine just before serving.

Ishbel, keep on eating the way you do. Always sounds so healthy to me. I admire your incentive to do right. Now that is new one, duck breasts. and what in the world is darne of salmon? I never have seen duck breasts sold around here. Does it taste like chicken? I bet has own flavor.

A 'darne' of salmon is a sort of pillow shaped cut from the salmon fillet. That's what my fishmonger calls it, anyway!

Duck is a fairly common meat here in the UK. It's certainly 'game-ier' than a chicken and some find it a trifle fatty - but served with a cherry or l'orange sauce - it is really nice 8)

Sounds so good and know you enjoy fixing it. Is the salmon fresh. So many complain around here about fish being something to worry about. My brother has his own pond and eats the fish from there so no worry about chemicals. I used to enjoy eating fish until everyone said not the way it used to be. Do you have these worries where you are? Then this business about mad cow disease! But I would eat fish more than beef if not always precaution.

I only buy organic salmon, trout and meat. There was never a case of Mad Cow disease in any of the Scottish herds - and I only ever buy Aberdeen Angus - so I've never worried on that score! I have never bought really cheap cuts of meat or processed dishes using beef - because that's where the risk of CJD is based.... So, although beef went through the doldrums here in the UK for a number of years, I never stopped eating it because I was absolutely sure of the provenance of the beasts whose meat I was consuming! My butcher sources all his meat from local farmers.

Scotland has some of the finest salmon rivers in the world - and all our fish is fresh - A lot of our fish is landed at Aberdeen, a big fishing town and then shipped all over Scotland (and the rest of the UK) and the fish in my fishmonger's shop is absolutely fresh!

Ishbel, count your blessings! Sounds wonderful everything still so pure. That is the way life was meant to be. However, I bought some beef from some local people here that were starting to try to raise the cows themselves and when I tried it the meat was tough. My brother claims they did not give the cows the right grain to eat. There was no fat but oh how hard to chew and swallow it. Smelled very good but what a disaster. Keep on eating the fish it is supposed to be the best thing for you. My family is fearful of eating fish around here. AS I said people with their chemicals. My brother used to yell at me for buying colored toilet paper telling me it was going to affect the water system. He is not as strict now because he can see one individual doesn't make difference in this big country.
