Thank you for visiting my blog!

For those of you new to my blog, I thought I should let you know what my mission is. I am working my way through Rachael Ray's 365: No Repeats cookbook. It is my goal over time to prepare all of the recipes in this book. At the pace I am going, it may take me 5 years, but I am practical enough to realize that there is no way that I can cook every single night of the week, as well as purchase all the ingredients for every recipe every night and still keep up the mortgage payments! I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes yourself. Your comments are always welcome and I appreciate you stopping by. May the Lord bless you all!

Night 18

Recipe 55
Halibut Soup
My rating ***1/2 (Matt's going to poker night so I spared him a fish dish!)

Ingredients used:

Andouille sausage (or chorizo)
Yellow onion
Poblano pepper (the store didn't had one so I did a green bell - a poblano is a mild sweet pepper)
Garlic cloves
Dry white wine
Chicken stock
Flat-leaf parsley
French bread or any crusty bread to mop up the juice

Wow I had no idea how expensive halibut is! I think I should have just halved this recipe since I made it for myself, but now at least I have leftovers...I wonder if this would freeze well? I guess I can try and see what happens. The bread was great for dipping in the broth/juices and for filling up that carb crave! This has to be a pretty healthy dish because of all the veggies and fish. There really wasn't much sausage and I would have doubled it because there was so much fish. This was a good soup but I have so many other soup recipes that this one is lower on my list to make again. Definitely worth trying though! My next installment will be on either Saturday or Sunday, so stay tuned!
