31 Day Blog Challenge: Day 26

Mmmmm, this question comes at just the right time.

Today it was raining off and on over the already frozen ground that is Idaho in the winter. Freezing rain, y’all.

But you know what’s best during freezing rain? Soup.

Today’s prompt asks, “What is your favorite food?”

And today I’ll tell you my favorite food is the meal I make for my husband and I while we curl up on the couch and watch A Young Doctor’s Notebook and wait out this dreadful weather.

The only thing on tonight’s menu was soup, but it was a delicious one.

Tomato Basil Soup with Three Cheese Tortellini.

I forgot to take a picture of it before my husband so kindly put it all away for our lunches tomorrow. But the original recipe I started using is from Rachel Schultz on A Household Almanac.

I, of course, have modified it. Not to make it any better, but to satisfy my laziness. I didn’t measure anything. I made a giant pot of this to make sure we’d have lots of leftovers.

Here’s how I did it:

2 packages of Bertolli Tortellini cooked al dente.

2 16oz cans of tomato sauce
About 4 cups of vegetable broth
Heavy Cream – a splash? Just enough to make it the color I wanted.
A BUNCH of pepper and Basil
Approximately 1 TSP of Garlic Salt

Hubby approved and so did my tummy. I’m in love with this meal almost as I am in love with him ❀

What’s your favorite food?
What’s your favorite thing to cook on a cold day?

  1. Omg! As soon as I saw the food my stomach shouted ‘give it to me!!’
    I am also all about the unspecified measurements… No sticking to a recipe for me!
    Make it how you like it πŸ˜€ I am so trying this.

  2. Sounds oh so yum! The girls and I wanted lasagna AND chicken soup last night, and as it is nearly time to shop again, I wanted left overs for lunches we made both! Now we will be eating it til Thursday πŸ™‚

    Oh, and way to stick to the blog challenge! ❀

  3. Ahh this looks so goooood!

    My husband and I are soup fanatics. The easiest soup in the world to make is an orzo vegetable soup (if I remember correctly though…you’re not a fan of vegetables?), but I also love to make Italian Wedding Soup.

    Andd…now I want soup and it’s 9:30 in the morning.

    1. I want to like vegetables so badd!!! I am less picky about veggies when they are in soups because the textures are a lot milder.
