Here’s a couple of recipes I made the other day… I wasn’t to sure if Ray would like this soup, he like’s more chunky soup not smooth soups like I do.
Cream of Pumpkin Soup:
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves minced
4 tbsp. unsalted butter
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups orange juice
1 (15-oz.) can pure pumpkin puree
2 cups chicken broth
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 cup heavy cream
In a large saucepan, saute the onion in butter and oil until soft. Add garlic and cook a few minutes more. Add orange juice, pumpkin, broth and seasonings. Simmer 20 minutes. Puree mixture in a food processor or blender until smooth. Return to saucepan and stir in heavy cream; do not boil. Serve hot.
Rolled Herb Toast:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 package (1/2-oz.) herb salad dressing mix
1 tsp. dried dill weed
1/4 tsp. granulated garlic
20 slices standard size white or wheat bread
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine melted butter, dressing mix, dill weed, and garlic in a medium bowl. Trim crust from bread and save for a different use. Flatten each slice with a rolling-pin and roll tightly. Coat each roll with butter mixture. Place rolls on an ungreased baking sheet and bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned, turning several times. Serve hot. Toast may be frozen or stored in an airtight container. Reheat before serving.
Right now it’s 3:30am and I can’t sleep right now.. Uhhh!!! I did get the cake done for the NICU baby around 1am, so all I have to do is wrap it up later in the morning. I have night’s like this sometimes where I can’t sleep, I think it’s the medication they have me on for the Sarcoid..
Well I am off to bed now, I am getting very sleepy now.. YAWN!!!! 🙂
