Such great flavor, and a beautiful soup.
I made this one late in the evening. And by late, I mean 8 o'clock. I do have a one-year old people, and 9pm is about my bedtime these days.
Anyhow, I ate a big bowl - hot, chunky style, made with the milk & chicken broth, and topped with shredded gruyere as soon as the forty minute simmer time was up.
Mentally, I told myself, I'd put the leftovers in the fridge after the soup cooled just a bit.
Then, I feel asleep on the couch.
Then, I woke up, peeled the contacts out of my eyes, and crawled into bed.
Then, it was 6 am. Maaa ma... maaa ma....
I got my little love bug out of his crib, went to the kitchen to get his milk, and there was my soup. Still on the stove.
Oh, the disappoinment. I had big plans for that soup today. And high expectations of beautifully married next-day flavors. I was so mad, I dumped it. Right then.
Oh course, my plan was to take a photo that morning, in better light. Now, the only photo I could have taken was the soup in the garbage pail. Or the dirty pot. I will not subject you to either.
I can promise you, the soup was fab, though!!
Here - I'll direct you to a couple of other FFWD'ers who made the soup this week, too, with beautiful photos to boot!! If you guys mind the link, lemme know. I'll take it right down!
