Oven damaged during June 12 storm may soon be repaired and I will be able to bake again. Meanwhile as we get ready for rain that may last for five days. The obvious meal for My Wife and I was a large pot of Vegetable Chicken noodle soup.
I created classic homemade Chicken noodle soup, with large dice Chicken, Onion, Celery, Carrots and large Egg noodles.
Looking at the pot I wanted more so out of the fridge came Eggplant that I peeled and diced large. From the back of the fridge came a mason jar of pureed Okra, Onion and Tomatoes. I used the puree to thicken a broth soup that needed more umph!. My Wife added crackers, I was satisfied making the soup thicker with the Okra puree.
We will continue to watch the flood waters rise and be happy are tummys are full and satisfied. As the week progresses I will add other veggies to keep the soup pot bottomless. I will likely even introduce Bologna or P-nut butter and jelly sandwiches as the flood waters rise.
Will Conroe's Farmers market be open ? I am sure it will be. Elvis from Pea's Farm and Chef Michael have been there during other torrential down pours. The rain is supposed to last for five straight days, till next week Tuesday. Stay dry readers, unless you are from the Southeastern states. Get your Pot of Soup started and share your best creation.
