“The love of our family soups, flows strong and deep, leaving us memories to treasure and keep.” by Campbell’s
Welcome to a delicious “Soupy Tuesday.” For those of you that are new to my blog…For the next few months I will be sharing a recipe for a delicious easy soup. As the days get cooler and eventually colder, everyone enjoys a hot bowl of soup. If you would like to see a special recipe for soup or have one that you want to share just email me at (angellite13 [at] optimum [dot] net) or post something in the comments below. I will be happy to give you a shout out. Hope this keeps you warm and cozy for the next few months…
We are in the second week of Advent already. Advent is the religious countdown to Christmas. It seems to be a magical time. During the Advent season, Christians all over the world start to prepare for the birth of Jesus. In celebration of His birth, there are many preparations, such as decorating your house, your tree, wrapping gifts, cards to write, meals to plan, and cook, plus baking cookies, gingerbread houses, and lastly who will be attending Midnight Mass.
|"San Nicola or St. Nick"|
|"Cooking With Nonna"|
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 pound of escarole, chopped and washed
A pinch of salt
4 cups low-salt chicken broth
Freshly ground pepper
Grated Pecorino-Romano cheese
Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a heavy large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add the escarole and sauté until wilted, about 3 minutes. Add a pinch of salt. Add the chicken broth, cover and simmer about 5 minutes. You can add a can of white kidney beans (washed and rinsed to get the salt off) plus/or cooked Tortellini. Serve with crusty Italian bread and top with grated Pecorino-Romano cheese.
*********There will be no blog post on Friday of this week as I am starting my 12 days of "Christmas Around The World" on Sunday December 13th through December 24th (Christmas Eve) So make sure you come back on Sunday to see what country I post first...I can't wait! I love Christmas anywhere!!!
*******Also I would like to wish our Jewish friends and readers a very “Happy Chanukah” The Festival of The Lights is when a traditional menorah or candelabra, is used to light each candle of the eight nights of the holiday! Enjoy!
Till Next Time……
