Congratulations to cronelv for winning the last giveaway for the complete QATV Series 700!
Please email Lindsey Murray (firstname.lastname@example.org)
with your address and she’ll mail you the DVD set.
This next giveaway has to do with quilting and food. I don’t
know about you, but in the winter I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. My
favorite things to make are mini-calzones (made from scratch and I like to experiment with
different kinds of cheeses and ingredients), pasta dishes, and a variety
of soups. A staple in our house is a really thick chicken soup—so thick it’s
almost a stew, and I make a huge vat of it every few weeks and store in smaller
containers to freeze.
Of course every chef needs a sous chef, in my case Louie.
Pokey’s Chicken Soup
2 tablespoons of olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, minced
3 quarts of chicken broth (preferably low sodium)
2 cups of carrots, chopped
2 cups of celery, chopped
2 cups of onion, chopped
3 cups of mushrooms, sliced
2 teaspoons parsley flakes
1 tablespoon of thyme
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons celery salt
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
4 tablespoons of margarine
1 cup of dry white wine
4 cups of cooked wild rice
1 bag of baby spinach
3 cups of boiled chicken ***, chopped to bite-size
2 cups of grated Parmesan cheese
the olive oil in a large saucepan with the heat on high. Saute the garlic
for 30 seconds.
- Add the chicken broth and the next 9 ingredients. Once it comes to a boil,
put to medium heat for 30 minutes. Note: I like to add a whole lot of mushrooms!
in the wine, rice and chicken ***.
4. Add the Parmesan cheese, making sure to continually stir.
So my giveaway question to you… What is your own favorite
recipe for winter? Post your recipe and on Wednesday I'll choose to feature a few plus give away a copy of Malka Dubrawsky's new book, Fresh Quilting!
