2 dishes, not an animal in sight
Well, as you may have noticed from my previous posts, it is a rare night when we don't eat some sort of meat. We are meat lovers and cutting all meat out of our diet is just not something that will happen anytime soon. That being said, I have been trying to work at least one night of meat-free meals into our menu. Tonight was the night. We had Beer Cheese Soup
and Spaghetti squash.
As you may be able to tell from the picture, the soup is looking a little bit thin. And it sure was. I looked all over for recipes and decided that the fundraising cookbook from 1986 had as good a recipe as any of them. Well if you happen to know any members of the Kansas City chapter of Pilot Club in the mid-80's you might let them know that their beer cheese soup is too thin. We tried letting it cool, nothing. We tried letting it cook down at a rolling boil, nothing. The flavor was great, but I will have to play with the amount of liquid next time.
Oh well. I work 3 nights this week, so dinner will not be made too often, but I plan to throw together some other treats and maybe a few freezable servings of dinners for other late night shifts.
