Food for a cold day

We had dueling soups on the stove today. Here is Gary’s deer burger soup . Brown some ground venison, add onions, then add a can of tomatoes, a carrot or 2, celery, salt and pepper, water, beef bouillon, and egg noodles.

Here’s my mushroom barley soup. I brown about a cup of raw barley in olive oil to toast them, then boil the barley in water with some veggie bouillon. Sautee sliced portabellos with onions, garlic, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, and a touch of butter (mushrooms are better in butter imo!). Add them to the barley, add a carrot or 2, celery. I also had some sour cream that had been mixed with horseradish in the fridge (left over from crabcakes earlier this week) so I added that too!

Making the rounds on the web lately is a recipe for a quick beer bread. Here’s the link. It’s an easy recipe! I had some frozen chives from last year’s garden in the fridge, so I added a handful of them plus some cheddar cheese. The beer is Saranac Pale Ale. Next time I make this bread I will knead it rather than mix and plop it in the pan.

And for dessert – eggnog bundt cake made with eggnog left over from the holidays. I am never patient when it comes to removing a bundt cake from its pan. I am always so eager to see how it looks, I remove it before it cools completely and end up leaving parts of the cake in the pan. That’s one way to sneak a taste early!
