Cauliflower Soup

****Update: Added cooked egg noodles to the leftover soup for lunch today and everyone thought it was better than it was the first time*****

"Wow Mommy, it is five minus outside!" This is what I heard from the back seat as I was driving my girlies to school this morning. Not only that, my coffee did not even make it from our house to the middle school without turning cold. We're talking a few blocks, baby it's cold outside!



PERFECT soup weather. I mean perfect. Nothing is more comforting than a big bowl of soup on a "five minus" day! The Cauliflower Soup was very good. It is somewhat of a potato soup type, but without the potatoes. So I have to think it's gotta be healthier for all you health conscious, starch monitoring people. Loaded with cauliflower, carrots, and celery, you are getting a bang for your buck with the veggies. Never mind the butter and cream...it's all good. We need the calcium, right? We ate this soup with french bread and orange wedges tonight. The kids pretty much loved it. Half of them had seconds and Steve said to add it to the recipe file.


PW strikes again!!

I want to know if you can taste the fact that it is cauliflower. I don't like cauliflower, but if it is disguised enough it would be a way for me to eat this healthy veggie. What do you think? Do your kids all like cauliflower?

My kids are out or the ordinary in MAnY ways, :)...but especially in the fact that they like most veggies. The soup really does taste almost more like potato. And if you would chop your cauliflower really small, I think you would be amazed. But then again, you could NEVER disquise an egg for me!

I made the Cauliflower Soup tonight and I was quite disappointed. Perhaps I was so excited about the Sherried Tomato Soup that this was a let down. I hate cutting up vegetables, but I did it while the Jayhawks were getting beat by Tennessee so that may have contributed to the pain. I also thought that it would be creamier--anything with half and half should be creamy, right? It made a very large batch so it will be interesting to see if Terry eats it or throws it out when I return to Lawrence tomorrow. Will stick with the 'tater soup!

It does make a huge portion, doesn't it? The Hawks loss I'm sure did not help in this case, but nonetheless it's annoying to have that much leftover when it's not something you care for. Here's an idea...have Dad get it cooking in the crockpot all day and walk it on over to the landlord. Who knows? Maybe he'd get a discount for this month! :)

Made this tonight. Everyone liked it except for Bethany so it was a hit here. I'd say it is definitely a good thing that it makes so much because within an hour I was starving. It definitely does NOT stick to your ribs.

Isn't it funny how we think something is a "hit" even when one of our kids doesn't like it!! I love it!! Gotta be a "4 kiddo" thing...ya think?

And Sara...inquiring minds would like to know---does ANYTHING stick to your ribs?? Or any other part of your body, for that matter. We're just all jealous! ;)
