Curry carrot soup

This is what I made for dinner.  It was delicious.  How can you make this?  Well, this version was the bare-bones version.  You are looking at:soup

I cut up some carrots and put them in boiling water with bouillon cubes.  I cook them until they are very soft. Then I purée the carrots, add curry (to taste).  Add cooked meal starters.  Serve with hot sauce and sour cream.

When I am feeling more ambitious I:

  • Sautée some onions — some go into the puré, some are saved and added to the mixture with the curry.
  • Include potatoes (white or sweet), zucchini, other veggies I think work with carrots.

What I am eating (or was) this year

As families across the globe sit down for meals that they have labored over, I am going to share what I have been eating.  You may want to write this down or print it to share with your loved ones, future generations even.  It’s just that good.

One of my favorite things to do is laugh at myself, not at the comedy I write but the dumb ass things I do.  With that idea in mind, I would like to share what was for a period of time, my absolute favorite thing to cook and eat.  This was not when I was five, this was earlier this year.

I call this “crap I have in the apartment,” here’s how you make it:



Take the Morningstar Farms meal starters and put as much as you want in a saucepan with some water.  Boil for a few minutes.  Reduce heat and add (to taste), corn, hot sauce, pasta sauce, salsa and brussel sprouts.  Heat until hot (d’uh).  Serve with the salad dressing.

Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.  Or do.  Now that I have bought some other food, I have stopped eating it.  I have to tell you, my other option was dry cat food mixed with wasabi and that sure sounds worse, right?
