My Mom had gone for lunch with some friends and had Italian Wedding Soup
and really enjoyed it. She eats a lot of soup, so they bought the canned
variety and hated it (as I told them they would, but...), so I made some
for Sunday Dinner for her.
When we lived in Calgary we used to go to a restaurant that had very good
IWS, and also gave you free bread when you sat down. Neither of us can remember
the name of it, and so I googled IWS and Calgary in case maybe the restaurant
had been featured in a publication and it would jump out me, but no luck. But, one from
Toronto's Metro News showed up in the search, (?) so I went with it.
I never would have put carrots in IWS, but it worked, and it's extra veggies,
so there you go. The soup was easy to make and everyone liked it a lot.
The only thing I would change would be to make more meatballs. You need lots.
I made a batch (2 loaves) of Cheddar and Onion Soda Bread. Excellent.
We rounded out the above with some salad and sliced meat.
All 3 in the titles were new recipes - the bread was cheese and onion soda bread from
Paul Hollywood's very good book 100 Breads, and the chocolate peanut butter brownies
were from Ships of the Great Lakes.
