I said I was going to make it and I did but not tonight (Sunday). I made it last night because we weren’t all that hungry for a big meal as we had taken a trip to the local turkey farm to check out what we might want to order for Thanksgiving. The Hincks Turkey Farm, established in 1938 has a quaint little outlet shop/restaurant in Mannasquan, NJ. We treated ourselves to turkey sandwiches. I had the Russian Turkey and Peter had the Flaming Turkey. Mine, you can probably guess the ingredients but his? His had hot cherry peppers in it! This late lunch took place close to 3:00 so as dinner time approached, we weren’t very hungry.
I switched menus and made this hearty soup. The problem with posting about it is that I didn’t make if from scratch so I don’t have a recipe to blog about. When we were at the Orchard a few weeks ago, I spotted the soup mixes and remembered that I had made one last year and it was beyond “souper”. The brand is Cherchies, and they make several different kinds of hearty soup mixes. I think I paid $6.99 for the package; You add cooked chicken to it and dumplings if you want to really make a meal of it. And we did! I trimmed all of the meat off of the roast chicken we had on Friday night and used it in the soup (love getting two meals out of something) and I made dumplings with Bisquick. What a delightful meal!
I also purchased their Mushroom Chowder Mix so as soon as we have another nippy evening, I might make that one.
I like to think of myself as a good cook and love posting recipes of dishes I’ve made so I hope I haven’t disillusioned my followers tonight.
