Some are. Some aren’t. We obviously are. Considering the number of times I have blogged about soup.
Particularly, a good quick soup.
Like bean soup, without all the preparations I used for the one above.
This one was simple. Because. It is cold and rainy. I didn’t feel like roasting a chicken today as I was out of the house too much.
But, I have my trusty pantry.
You know. You can pull a couple of cans of beans. Today I used the cannellini beans. Two cans. I had chicken breasts cooked.
I always have chicken in the freezer, from my two sources. Every week I find a day to bake or poach chicken breasts. To have them ready for lunches or dinners. They get eaten quickly.
Then, a little flavor. Today it came from a box of Pacific condensed cream of mushroom soup. And, a couple of cubes of my latest pesto. Right out of the freezer.
Dump it all in a crockpot. With a little bit of water. Dinner in a few hours, with no stirring or pot watching. I did tonight’s batch on a high setting. It was perfect after two hours in the pot. Served with some naan. And a salad. And, of course, a glass of Linden chardonnay.
