  • I freestyled an awesome vegetable soup starting with onions, garlic and celery. Then I added chopped, fresh tomatoes and slowly cooked them down until they were thick and caramelized. I deglazed the pan with some white wine, then added chicken stock, carrots, squash, fresh corn and kale. We’ve been eating it all week with garlic bread. Yum!
  • Then with the rest of the chicken stock (I made a full batch of Slow Cooker Chicken Stock), I made a pureed soup with carrots, fennel and garlic.
  • I’m planning on steak fajitas this coming week to use up all of these green peppers. I’m not a big fan of green peppers, and fajitas are about the only thing I like to use them for!
