You all recognize this scenario by now.
And you've seen this look too.
Sometimes staying alert this early in the morning is tough.
The floor patrol sometimes takes mini naps.
Teddy looks a bit grumpy before her morning treat.
Once a year my dear sweet sister sends me wild rice from Minneapolis. She lives there and it costs much less than it does here since it is harvested in Minnesota. I love wild rice soup. First I melt some butter in a pot and I cook the wild rice according to directions.
I slice up a bunch of leeks.
And saute' them in the butter.
I add carrots and celery and mushrooms and saute' these until translucent. Then I sprinkle flour over the vegetables and cook this for a few minutes.
Then I add chicken stock to the vegetables.
I add the meat from a roasted chicken.
And then add the cooked wild rice. Add 1 cup of cream and salt and pepper to taste.
A perfect meal for a cold day.
