The Garden: Week 6

Posted by Hallee on Jun 16, 2011 in Gardening, Hallee's Galley

I no longer have a smaller garden, a corn garden, and a main garden – everything has been merged into one big “L” shaped garden.

Amazing Butternut Squash Bisque

Posted by Hallee on Mar 13, 2010 in Daniel Fast, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Soups

I watched a Top Chef one season, and late in the season toward the finals or maybe in the finals, one of the contestants made a butternut squash soup that had the judges wanting to lick their bowls. It seemed odd to me that something that should be as simple as a butternut squash soup, could illicit such a response from a group of people who taste amazing food all the time. It sent me on a quest to find a recipe that good, something that would make me sad the bowl was empty when I was finished. I’ve found that recipe, and I’ve found that secret ingredient that makes it all the better. I hope this bisque is as amazing for you as it was for me.

Mirepoix [mir-pwah]

In bear bones basic, a mirepoix is onions, carrots, and celery. It is typically used as a base for French soups. Bisque is a French soup, so it stands to reason that the base is going to be a mirepoix.
