With Bill in the process of changing jobs, our budget has been quite tight. Today, I stared at the cupboards trying to figure out what to prepare for supper. Do you remember the chicken I had left from the soup I made last week? I had it thawing, so I knew I would use it and and rice. When I absolutely could not decide what to make. I just shredded the chicken and threw it in the pot with the rice to cook. I then thought I might make chicken and rice soup with vegetables in it. I pulled out some frozen vegetables and threw them in too. I added in some salt, pepper, garlic salt, dried parsley flakes, and Worcestershire sauce. When I put back the frozen vegetables, the sour dough loaves were calling my name. I pulled them out and heated them up after preheating the oven. It was then I decided I would use the loaves as bowls and make the soup something similar to a chicken pot pie filling. Please understand, I have never made chicken pot pie and had no idea what I was doing other than experimenting. Luckily, I ended up being quite pleased in the end. To the soup that was already cooking, I added two heaping tablespoons of AP flour dissolved in water. Then I added a little more than a cup of milk and about three tablespoons of sour cream. I added a little more salt, white pepper, and garlic salt for flavor.
|I wish I could take credit for baking these, but I can't. :)|
My inexpensive meal felt quite rich in the end! I even have plenty of soup leftover! Everyone in the house liked it except Jacob.
Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
