Mellow Monday

You should know by now that we love soup.  I mean really, is there anything better than soup? Especially on long stretches of Minnesota days with much snow and cold and little sunshine?

The answer to my question is no.  On Monday, when one of my favorite blogs: Gina's Skinny Recipes, popped up with a Chicken Pot Pie Soup, my mind was made up.

I followed the recipe pretty exactly, but used vegetable stock instead of bouillon cubes, used broccoli instead of mushrooms, and used the George Foreman to cook the chicken (duh).

Peeling the potatoes is the most labor intensive part of this soup.

Also, for your information, this soup requires you to make a "slurry", which is basically mixing flour or cornstarch with a little bit of water and setting it aside before you add it into your soup/sauce.

It doesn't look very interesting.

But, the soup does!  It tastes just like pot pie filling!  Thanks to for this one.
