After admiring the work the landscapers did today, I took a couple of chicken breasts out of the freezer.  No concrete plan had emerged, but dinner was going to be chicken-something.  I started them a’thawin’ and headed to the office to see what work was awaiting me…

Victor came in a few minutes later and asked what plans I had.  Bein’ that it’s cold and damp outside, I was thinking something spicy and creamy served over rice.

Victor had other ideas.

Victor’s Won Ton Soup Italian Style

  • 2 qts Chicken broth
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 bag frozen won tons
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 cup carrots, diced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, diced
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1 cup romaine lettuce, shredded
  • grated parmesan cheese

Saute mushrooms ina  bit of butter or oil.  Add chicken and cook about half-way.  Add celery and carrots and cook just a bit.  Add broth and remaining ingredients.

Bring to a boil and cook until veggies are tender.

Top with parmesan cheese.

It was great.  And it really shows the difference in our cooking styles.  I love thin-broth soups, yet rarely make them.  I want thick and creamy when I’m making.  Victor loves thick and creamy, but usually makes thin.  It’s a win-win.

I had two bowls and could have gone back for a third, but I’m saving room for more Lemonade Pie later on…..
