This week’s taste adventure
Tonight we’re having Matzo ball soup. Specifically we’re having Adele’s Matzo Ball Soup. Foodie for two’s website has a wonderful step-by-step on how to make this soup.
Tonight’s dinner is a taste adventure for us because it’s new to us. We’ve never had Matzo balls before.
Cutting the chicken was interesting.
Note to self:buy a whole chicken that has already been cut up for you. Cutting a 5 pound chicken up into pieces isn’t fun.
Once the chicken was
cursed at (only a little)
and finally in pieces I had to cut the veggies.
Parsnips smell like spicy carrots. I like them.
Leeks are super dirty. Super dirty. Did I mention dirty?
I got my soup into my cast iron cooker and it bubbled away for 3 hours.
My house smelled WONDERFUL.
Most of the family loved the soup and the Matzo balls. The picky one (aka: my daughter) liked the soup, but not the Matzo balls. I think next time I make this soup I will make extra Matzo balls, because the teen loved them. This soup is flavorful, it’s just wonderful. I’m thankful that I found Foodiefortwo’s blog post (where you can find the soup recipe).
