Sandwiches and brownies.

Tomorrow is a big pot of potato and kale soup with chorizo.

Might you be so kind as to share this soup recipe, pretty please? :)

Panera potato cheese soup.  Recipe is very easy and quite good.  Fruit salad

I will share it after I get home. It is very similar to the Zuppa Toscana soup at Olive Garden.

Tossed together a "whatever's in the kitchen" dinner that turned out great: roasted a big pan of layered goodness: sliced extra-firm tofu on the bottom, then onion, tomatoes and basil, eggplant slices, garlic and tomatoes and basil, more eggplant, more tomatoes and a simple jarred tomato-basil sauce. Topped with breadcrumbs after baking 30 minutes at 350, then baked 12 more minutes.

Served with garlic bread. Enough leftovers for 4 lunches from one big baking dish.

My local grocery store has a surprisingly good Chinese and Indian hot bar beside the salad bar. I topped a bed of spinach with stir fried veggies, peas and paneer, saag and channa masala.

Tonight I will make potato-leek soup.  I made 100% sure I bought all the ingredients when I went to the grocery store this weekend.

As requested.

Potato and Kale Soup
from the America's Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook
Serves 6

1 tsp Canola oil
4 oz Chorizo, cooked whole, then sliced in half and into 1/4" slices
1 onion, minced
4 garlic cloves, minced or passed through a press
1 tsp ground cumin
Pinch of red pepper flakes
6 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 lbs red potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 3/4" chucnks
1 16 oz chickpeas, rinsed
12 oz kale, stemmed and leaves sliced 1/4" thick
1 tsp fresh oregano or 1/4 tsp dried
Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat until shimmering. Add the chorizo and cook until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the chorizo to a plate.

Add the onion to the pot and cook over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, cumin and red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Stir in the broth, potatoes and chickpeas. Bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook until the potatoes are almost tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Stir in the chorizo, kale and oregano and simmer until the kale and potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Mash some of the potatoes against the side of the pot to thicken the broth slightly. Season and serve.

Per 1-1/2 cup serving: Cal 260, Fat 9g, Sat Fat 3g, Chol 15mg, Carbs 35g, Protein 12g, Fiber 6g, Sodium 750mg

Last night I made chicken and wild rice casserole. It was a risk with my very unadventurous eater husband, but it turned out really well.

I've got pot roast cooking in the crock pot for tonight. I'm going to add some potatoes and carrots when I get home. I can't wait.
