Swiss Chard and Lentil Soup - april 9, 2014
While visiting my French friend Laure in London, who is author of the Frog Mom blog, I was reminded of this book because she has it on her shelf, too. In fact, she is the one who first showed it to me many years ago in San Francisco. Packed with nearly 200 recipes for soup, I can always find something quick and tasty to make for dinner here. It is especially perfect for days when I've been swimming in the icy cold river at Hyde Park with Laure and need to warm up fast.
--- After dinner follow up:
Both parents enjoyed it, one kid gobbled it up and the other ate most of his soup when bribed with leftover peach crisp for dessert. The cheese was a one-sided hit as well. Raving about how I could taste the flavor of what the cows had been eating generated excitement for its grassy flavor.
