Today I wanted to share a sweet start to my boys journey with Kristen. It was of course included in the welcome basket.
As the story goes…Kristen had her tonsils out a
week after their first date. Curtis called her
to say he had made carrot soup for her and
was bringing some over. He ended up
delivering the soup in blizzard conditions that night
but didn’t stay as he had to drive his brother to
work who was waiting in the car. The funny
part is that she hates carrots but she ended up
liking the soup and apparently him too.
We’re glad she gave both a chance and so now
you too have a carrot soup recipe. Enjoy!
Tatsu’s Carrot Soup …revised by Curtis
1lb. carrots ( I use 1 ¼ lb)
I medium yellow onion
4 cups chicken stock
4 TLBS sugar
¼ white rice to thicken ( I don’t use)
½ stick of butter
Place carrots, stock, sugar, and rice in soup
pot and bring to medium heat but do not boil.
Cook until carrots are tender
Fill blender half full and blend and then return to
soup pot and bring to boil adding butter
and whisking well. Recipe says garnish
with cream but I just add it to the soup pot.
So as the wedding nears and I am working away being busy making guest baskets, I wanted to share the sweet story of one of the firsts in Curt and Kristen's relationship. I hope you will forgive the poor grammar and format in this post. I struggle with this blogger layout. It's very much it's own animal in placing and never goes into the correct paragraph line up.URRG! Have a great week my friends and thanks for checking in.
