What’s on the Menu ~ Thinking Ahead

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had lost my desire to cook; I mean real cooking. Well, gladly it returned, but as I started putting my menus together of things I wanted to make, I noticed that a certain and same ingredient was missing, which prevented me from making many of those meals. It was vegetable broth. So far, I have only found two soup recipes that we like that don’t require broth. One is white bean soup (my quick-go-to soup) and the other is minestrone and pesto soup, which taste great with cheese biscuits.

I eat soup year-around, but I feel fall coming and I want more soup. I finally took the time and made two batches of broth. Most of it is already gone after being used in a few soups that I made. The rest has been placed in the freezer ready for me to defrost whenever I need it for the next time I’m ready to make more soup.

    I still have not made your cinnamon rolls but, I am going to make them before this year is out. Happy to see you got your mojo back. My feezer meals routine got interupted before our summer break and we still are not back to it. (sigh) We will get there though.
