I planned on having soup for dinner tonight.  What I didn’t plan on, though, was not having to make it!

My thought was to add last night’s leftover risotto to some chicken broth, add some chicken, a few more veggies, and call it done.  Except there wasn’t any leftover risotto.  I started thinking about  Plan B when Victor said he would make a soup for dinner.  I quickly accepted before he could change his mind!

Into a pot of chicken broth went celery, carrots, peas, corn – and langostino.  He was going to thaw and chop up a chicken breast when he saw the langostinos.

It all came to a nice boil and he stirred in a raw egg that had been scrambled.

And shredded parmesan on top.


We didn’t have a dessert planned, so he asked if I would make my Everything But The Kitchen Sink Cookies.

I did.  They’re cooling as I type.
