When I see this many grins - that are this big - I usually wonder what my kiddos have been up to.
|It was their idea to match this day.|
But it was a good thing that everyone was smiling this time.
The reason for all the pearly whites? This new recipe that I tried for the first time - "Creamy Potato Soup with Sausage and Kale":
It is on page 85 in my new favorite cookbook. (But psssssst: the recipe is also on her blog, but there it's called "Italian Potato Soup")
This was the first time I'd made this soup and it got thumbs-up all around. All. the. way. around. Not many recipes can boast that. Thankfully I doubled the recipe, so it lasted us for two meals.
Elisabeth has already requested that I serve it again when we celebrate a special day for her next week.
Even Mr. G liked it...
...and all I had to do to make it "Mr. G acceptable" (since he's still dairy-free) was scoop his portion out of the pot before I added the dairy ingredients it calls for right at the end.
Here are some words of praise (that I do not want to forget) right out of the mouths of babes:
Daniel: "That is yummy, even if it has that salad stuff in it!"
LK: "That was yummy and you should make it infinity more."
