I hope everyone is doing well and staying warm. :)
The weather has been so crazy; almost 60 degrees one day and then back down in the
Last night, I made some soup to take the chill off.
This is my version of Olive Garden's chicken gnocchi soup.
1/3 cup butter
1 clove of minced garlic
1 lb. chicken,cooked
1/3 cup flour
1/2 carrot shredded
1 stick of celery, chopped fine
1 small onion chopped fine
1/2 cup fresh chopped spinach
4 cups of chicken broth
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
Cracked pepper to taste
17.6 oz. of Gnocchi
On medium heat.
Melt butter in a soup pot, add in the garlic,carrots and celery, then sautee,
add your chicken and cook through out.Add flour and stir in flour and mix well until the flour is cooked into the chicken.Next add your chicken broth and heavy cream
Then add the Spinach. Add your Gnocchi last it takes 3-4 min. to cook throughout
Mix ingredients well until soup thickens and stirring occasionally.
Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
I served it with a loaf of french bread. :)
Everyone loved it and there were no leftovers!
These were the flowers I got from my mom on Valentine's Day. They were a total suprise, really, you would have to know my relationship lately with my mom.
On the back of the chair is B-Nelly , aka, "bertha".
This is where I do the majority of my blogging and she is my proof reader.
Of course, right there she isn't much help. I think sometimes she suffers from "tuna induced coma". :)
Before I go, if you have an Aldi's nearby, stop in.
I picked up milk for $1.89/gal. and bread for 39 cents a loaf last night..
