Week 26 Friday (7/11/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Easy Flatbread Pizza
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         For all of you health nuts, here is the pizza for you! This one was created with flatbread – very different than the puffed pastry pizza presented earlier in the week.  Ree put mushrooms, tomatoes, and a choice of either zucchini, squash, or eggplant. Need I say more?  As a person who rarely eats veggies, this one is a nightmare for this meat and potatoes girl.  I’m sticking with pizzas for the Marlboro Man, sorry Ree.

Chicken and Rice Soup
(This is something I made while living in Florida)

½ stick of butter
1 medium onion
1/8 cup celery, chopped very small
¼ cup flour
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup ½ and ½
1 – 1.5 cups chicken, cut into bite size pieces
¾ cup cooked rice
¾ cup sliced pitted black olives
salt and pepper

In a soup pot, melt the butter. Add the onion and celery and cook it until it is cooked. Stir in the flour. Cook this for about 3 – 3.5 minutes.  Add chicken broth, cream, and broth and cook on LOW for about 20 – 25 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve it with saltine crackers.
