So anyway.. back to last night. As you may have read yesterday, I just wasn't feeling 100% health-wise. You know that feeling you get when you're body is telling you that if you don't play your cards right, a nasty cold or even flu could be in your future? When I get that feeling I pay attention, got to listen to your body, right? So enter lots of orange juice, hot tea and "rest" (you can still work, just take it easy) and extra sleep. I haven't had the flu since October of 2005 so I'm trying to keep up my streak. I've had the bad colds but not an all out flu since then. And, in 3rd grade, I was the only kid in class with perfect attendance. So I'm generally pretty healthy. The Mr. was insistent that I "rest" while he play head chef while I rest.. out of the kitchen! He came home with bags of shitake and cremini mushrooms, white wine and heavy cream - mushroom soup, anyone? Find his recipe here.
Needless to say it was excellent soup and just what I needed. The only thing we would do differently next time is serve with crusty bread and maybe a salad (or other vegetable side). The Mr. says that he got so into the soup that he neglected to plan any other sides for the meal. Cuteness. Not to worry darling, the soup was good enough we didn't need anything else :) (Plus, I had been snacking on more baked kale before dinner).
