Time to put the chef's hat on.

Oh how I wish my Ji Yeon was here. We always had such fun creating recipes. So since I am missing her I dressed in my Korean Chef clothes. Tomorrow I will be making soups of all kinds. The recipes will be added next week(if the soup passes the taste test). I am shopping for all the ingredients tonight, I am making 4 base soups and then changing them up a bit.

Sunday was my husbands Birthday but we were so busy all week we decided to celebrate it this week-end. I ask him what kind of a Birthday cake he wanted and he asked for a White cake with white frosting, oh my how exciting. I think this will be one cake that won't tempt me.

What a fun week-end grilling steaks, making soups and eating cake!

I love me some Soup!

I love to cook when I have the time, when I have the energy to clean up afterword is a big factor as well, so when I came up with this cook and freeze plan it was perfect for me. An easy way to
Store homemade soup is to Fill up bags, then lay them flat in the freezer. When the bags of soup freeze flat, you’ll be able to pile them up like stacked books for easy, space-saving storage. You can then label them and add the points. This is my non-baking plan of action....Soup!
If you make a soup base, then you can make some variations.
I will start with:
A.Potato soup
1. Potato Corn Chowder
2. Broccoli and Cheese and Potato Soup
B. Chicken Soup
1.Chicken Noodle Soup
2. Chicken and Rice Soup
3.White Chicken Chili
4.Chicken Tortilla Soup
C. Vegetable Soup
1. Vegetable beef Stew
2.Vegetable Bean Soup
D. Chili
1. Stoup (Spaghetti and meat soup)
I will probably add to my soup list in the future, if you have a favorite waist friendly soup please share it with me in the comments. I will take a picture and share it with you when I start my Soup Kitchen.
