Happy Halloween! I hope you have a fun and safe holiday today!
This week is soup week here at RMK, another week that I look forward to each year. I love how a bowl of soup can be paired with some bread and salad for a complete and satisfying meal! It’s also one of those comfort foods for when the weather gets cold outside. In fact, we will be enjoying soup tonight. We have a tradition of having chili on Halloween and I’m probably gonna pair it with peasant bread.
These soups that I will be sharing this week are a twist on some classic dishes that have been turned into a soup. First up is stroganoff. That classic beefy noodle dish has been soupified (my own new word).
It has everything you would expect from beef stroganoff – tender chunks of beef, twirly egg noodles, slices of mushrooms, a flavorful sauce or in this case broth, and that rich and creamy sour cream.
Also for you locals, I will be teaching a easy holiday appetizer class this Friday at the Utah Pinners Conference. Use the code REALMOM to receive a discount on your ticket. I would love to see you there!
