i made this beef & stout pie from a recipe i found in the williams sonoma catalog:
http://www.williams-sonoma.com/recipe/recipedetail.cfm?objectid=A3F7E1 DB-E41C-E23E-FBA1EA0EE6A953B1

that catalog is like porn for me...

anyway --- its awesome. i took it a step further... made the stew part the night before serving. let it simmer for the 3 hours and tthen turned off the heat and let it come to room temp. then put in fridge. next day, about 5 hours before serving, took out of fridge, let it come to room temp on stove top, and then heated back up to a simmer.

that pastry crust - w/ the stilton in it... OH MY GAWD. i am never going to make pie crust without cheese in it ever. i think i'm gonna make an apple pie w/ cheddar in the crust.

I've got a pot of white bean soup on the stove right now: mirepoix, cannellini beans, spinach, broth, garlic, basil, oregano, thyme, bay, s & p. I pureed one of the cans of beans with my immersion blender before throwing it in for thickening.

Apple and cheddar is an amazing match up. I just made some mac and cheese using quality cheddar and gruyere- but I threw in some crispy bacon and chopped up granny smiths. That was the best decision I've made in quite a while...

easy one:

curried carrot/ginger soup
1.5 lbs carrots
curry (garden fresh, please)
fresh grated ginger
chopped vietnamese coriander leaves for garnish
5 cups stock (I used shrimp stock as my bro hooked me up w/ 5lbs fresh carolina skrimps!)

the usual deal-blend in batches in food processor

There used to be a Thai joint next to US Outdoor Store in Downtown Portland, OR that had $5.00 lunch that started with KILLER brothy chicken soup.

I've just about made a perfect facsimile of it with my leftover fried chicken. I always have two breasts leftover - who can eat that shit?

The secret to the soup is HEAVY celery.

I strip the breasts down to the bone, take those bones along with all the other bones that I already ate the meat offa, chop the bulb end ( make it big, like the size of your fist) off of a celery stalk, strip some leaves off and add them too - and throw it all in the stock pot with some sea salt and coarse cracked black pepper, mebbe some onion too. (My first attempt I sweated some garlic, onion, celery - but that TOTALLY blows it. Don't do it.)

Boil it 'til it tastes good, strain. Put the stock back on the fire and add some shredded breast meat. Add some thinly sliced celery, onions and carrot (julienne the carrots). Ladle into bowl and hit it with some ground black pepper.

Mmmmm, good.

split pea tonight!

I wanna make potato-leek soup but I am so cold, I don't wanna run up to the store!

There's a Cambodian joint in the mall now!!!! They have beef stew with french bread on the side on the menu, but were all sold out. Report forthcoming.

I had the roast quail with a side of papaya salad. Mmmmm, good! I was expecting the papaya salad to be sweet, but it was more like, ummm the mildest saurkraut ever, nah maybe like good cole slaw, you know, the non-creamy kind - quite good, with carrots, cucumbers and garlic in there too. I never, ever imagined I'd be eating quail in a mall food court after browsing Macy's.

I <3 America~!

I made the soup after all and discovered the amazingness of the immersion blender! Ryan got one at the yard sale across the street, never used for $5. How did I make soups without it?

i made beef stew on saturday and the only thing i did wrong was forget to go to the bakery for a crusty chewy baguette to go with it.
Posted: Nov 17, 2008 4:19 pm
I just made a killer Hungarian-ish mushroom soup. Onion, mushrooms, beef stock, fresh thyme, s + p, loads of paprika, and some milk, butter, and crema.

Mmmmmmmm. I love soup!

I had this a couple times when I was in Spain. It was some of the greatest comfort food to ever pass these lips. I am going to try and recreate it this weekend.

Let us know how it goes.
