Zucchini Boat

Thursday, September 30th, 2010


My coworker’s neighbor grew this giant zucchinizilla in their garden and then gave it to my coworker who gave it to me. Then I got 2 more giant (but not as huge) zucchinis and I thought, “That’s a lot of shreds. A lot.” So we devised an alternate plan for the zucchini that ate Milwaukee.

Hot and Sour Soup

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010


A while back we made a hot honey orange turkey and I saved the bones for stock.

This weekend I souped me some spicy orange turkey bones and then made the stock into Hot and Sour Soup.

French Onion Soup

Sadly, I do not have the proper French Onion Soup bowls to put my French Onion Soup in so it looks like a shopping trip is in order.
