Over a year ago I lost a recipe. This was a recipe given to me at a restaurant that is no longer in business in Lancaster County PA. I was preparing to make it as part of my bi-weekly menu planning. I had pulled the recipe out of my card file. And then...it was gone! I couldn't find it anywhere! Since then I have been searching for that recipe. I looked on-line to no avail. I called relatives. (I thought my mom and sister were with me when I got this recipe) They didn't remember this recipe at all.
Today, I tackled one of the items on my four-page to do list. I cleaned out the desk apprentice. We have a wonderful organizer for paper and school supplies called the "Desk Apprentice." It sits in an honored place in the corner of the kitchen right by the table where we do most of our work. But, as most things in our kitchen, it became a dumping ground. My organizer was in desperate need of organizing. So I completely emptied it onto the kitchen table. As I got to the bottom of the organizer guess what I found? MY RECIPE! Yippee! Praise God!
Now, in order that I never lose this recipe again. I am going to record it here for all posterity. Please try it. It is the most delicious soup. And now, if I lose my card again...I can find it in my blog!
