Such is spring, I suppose!
Anyway, we didn't feel like doing much on Saturday other than snuggling, watching tv, playing games and doing housework. And of course, we had to eat something that would warm the bones a bit!
The Boy had brought home a colleague's recipe after a soup luncheon at the office. Today seemed a perfect day to try it out.
- 1 T. oil
- Boneless cooked turkey breast (I used about 3/4 lb)
- 1/4 c. chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
- 4 c. chicken broth
- 1 can white cream style corn
- 1 can white shoepeg corn
- 1/2 c. chopped cilantro
- 1/4 t. salt
Doesn't this look yummy?
It's the kind of soup that calls for fresh, hot cornbread.
But horror upon horrors! I discovered I was all out of Corn Kits!
Thankfully I maintain a well stocked pantry. I just tossed together some corn meal, flour, buttermilk, egg and whatnot, plus the Pioneer Woman's recipe for cornbread. (Hey...I'm from the north, married to a man from the south. Not just any homemade recipe for cornbread would do. All of my other recipes called for sugar! Say it ain't so...!!)
Cornbread crisis averted.
Cut a slab of cornbread, pour a ladle (or two...or three) over top and sit back to enjoy the spice!
