Long Island Harvest Veggie Soup

Driving home tonight, it was evident that Fall is upon us. It was getting pretty dark by 6 pm, leaves were scattering across the road like kids running off a school bus,  there was a chill in the air and that means only one thing.

Soup time!

I had about 45 minutes to day dream about what soup Cialis Online I would love to have tonight.

Creamy Clam Chowder? Nah, too much prep and not enough time.  Oh yeah, a nice hearty Seafood Chili, that sounds great. One problem…I had no seafood at home. Oh, wait, wait, wait……Lobster Bisque  with a hint of  sweet sherry with a dollop of Crème fraiche dusted with a sprinkle of Curry..shit, again No Crème fraiche, I ran out of sherry (ok, I drank the sherry) and my lobster guy is 12 miles west of me.

By the time I revved myself up, had day dreams of these wonderous soups amazing enough for The 4 Seasons I found myself pulling in the driveway bummed out.

In the fridge I found a bunch of veggies, more veggies, chicken stock, smoked salmon, veggie turkey slices, beer and too many little things of jelly..making me look like I knocked over a room service cart.

And then it hit me…..Tada!!! All of the veggies are from local farms, the chicken broth is organic and the caffeine from my Starbuck ‘s Grande Mocha rip off was wearing off so I better get cooking.

Sometimes through desperation comes our best culinary inventions. We’ll see. So here it goes.
