I must be getting my groove back, because last night I tried a new recipe for the first time in a LONG time. Daphne and I chose a soup from the latest issue of Southern Living and made it for dinner to celebrate Fall.
This is a lemon, meatball, and orzo soup, and the recipe is here. Daphne helped by peeling the carrots, zesting and squeezing the lemons, and adding things to the pot. She had a blast, and LOVED the soup. She loved it so much that she wanted to take it to lunch today and finally try out her new Star Wars thermos. I hope she doesn't spill it because it's picture day. Probably not the best day to take soup to lunch.
Anyway, I liked it a lot, too, and it was really easy. Next time, I may cut back on the lemon juice a little. It was pretty lemony, which is a little weird in soup. I really liked the chicken meatballs! I used fresh bread crumbs that I made in my food processor, and had to use a lot more than the recipe called for. I think I used 3 slices of bread with the crusts cut off.
I love soup! Fall is awesome!
