With the exception of the step "process in food processor" this was easy to make, just as most soups are. To process, I had to make sure it cooled well enough (horrible memories from not doing this in the past) so I put portions of the liquid in bowls and set them in the freezer for about ten minutes. It worked pretty well (I'm still a little scarred from using a blender though... don't even blend hot fruit *not from this blog*).
My favorite part of the whole thing was shredding my own Gouda. First off, Gouda's my favorite *said in my best Amanda Bynes voice* and shredding it was just fun. I found a shredder on CLEARANCE at Shop N Save and was so stoked.
Topped the soup off with the cheese and some more red peppers and this was the perfect dinner on a cooler than normal night.
I just mixed all the ingredients and poured it over the beef. I let it bake for two hours and it actually came out perfect (well, maybe a little more done than it needed to be, but still tasted good). This was super simple, as long as you have the time to let it bake for a couple hours, you’re golden with this recipe.
It looked and smelled even more delicious after I baked it in the over. For the picnic though, I had to reheat it in a crock pot. Though it still tasted not bad, I’m sure it would have been heavenly right out of the oven. As for the recipe, it wasn’t difficult to make and I love that there were mushrooms. While I was sauteing the mushrooms and onions, it smelled to aromatic. Thank goodness I had already eaten dinner that night.
That’s it! I loved making it for this reason. And when I topped my salad with it, it was amazing. This is probably going to be my favorite recipe out there when it comes to dressings. You all should definitely try this one.
I think I literally whipped the cream for twenty minutes before it started to form peaks. Maybe I have a bad mixer, or perhaps this is just true in nature for meringue. Needless to say, I didn’t have fun making this one. I did however have fun eating it. It tasted so great and I’m just glad that the meringue on top turned out ok and caramelized perfectly in the oven. I don’t think I’ll make this again unless I can find pre-made meringue somewhere.
I'm going to try to go in order from now on, just to make it slightly easier to keep track of. Next up on my list is: Southern Buttermilk Biscuits, Southern BBQ Chicken, Down Home Hush Puppies, Catfish Spread, and Lemonade Icebox Pie. We will see how many I get done, but it's nice to dream right? Stick around!
Only one recipe this week! I've been slacking slightly. But it's a good one!
