Sara, it is a soup flavored with curried chicken, apples and rice. There are pictures you can see on Pinterest.

Here is the recipe I use:

Mulligatawny


1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
1 cup each: chopped celery, chopped carrots, and chopped onions
1 clove garlic, minced
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
3 whole cloves (or about an 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves)
6 cups chicken broth
1 can (14 ½ oz.) diced tomatoes, drained
½ cup uncooked long grain white rice
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
2 cups peeled, cored and diced Granny Smith apples
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
¾ cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon lemon juice

Melt butter in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add celery, carrots, onions, and garlic. Cook and stir for 3-4 minutes, until vegetables begin to soften.

Add chicken. Cook until chicken is no longer pink. Add curry powder, chili powder, cumin, and cloves. Cook and stir for 2 more minutes. Add broth, tomatoes, rice, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add apples and parsley. Simmer for 10 more minutes. Remove from heat.Stir in sour cream and lemon juice. Serve hot. Makes 8 servings.

*I like to make a double batch and freeze some to have on hand when down with a cold or the flu.

We've had snow days, sick days, and blizzards. I lost track of the days and missed a few here.

Sharon, here's my pork stew recipe. Take boneless pork loin, cubed. I use a pound and a half. Flour cubes and brown in cast iron skillet with one chopped onion. Add one carton (about two cups) organic chicken broth, 1/2 tsp salt, one TBSP whole grain or brown prepared mustard, 1/2 cup dried cranberries, one large peeled, cubed sweet potato, one or two cubed apples and a TBSP butter. Cover and simmer on medium low for twenty minutes. Add a hand full of kale and simmer until kale is tender.
Last night was chicken with corn on the cob I froze this summer. Tonight is chicken burgers with homemade pickles.

Farmgirl hugs,
Nicole

Sharon, I just went back and edited it! Sorry...I had forgotten the apples...makes a HUGE difference in the recipe! Simmer it all until it gets thicker. It is heavenly!

Sharon, Looking at the recipe you posted...I am going to have to try that!

Tonight is a roast I will season with herbs and garlic, and on the side a raw broccoli/apple salad recipe I got from my friend and farmsister Ali. It is so good. It has dried cranberries and maple syrup in it, and some comfort food: my grandmother's greek mac and cheese.

What's on your table?

Nicole

Oh my GOSH, Sharon! I cannot WAIT to try that Mulligatawney! I haven't had that since I was a little girl! Thank you for sharing!

And Nicole - your pork stew sounds so good! I'm definitely going to try that one, too!

Tonight we're having spinach pies (calzones). The whole house smells soooo good - waiting for them to cool enough to handle is so hard! I sent a couple of them from the first batch over to my elderly neighbor, and my husband said his eyes opened wide when he lifted the foil. He was so excited, he tore into one and downed it right there with my husband looking on! LOL! 'Guess they're a hit! YAY!

Nini, what time do I show up for dinner??? Sounds good!

It's been a tough week...dd has been sick and there's been so many snow days I have lost count. I made a big pot of Magic Elixir Chicken soup (what I call my chicken soup) and dd felt well enough to go to school today, which was good as they only had a half day anyway. SO tonight I have a big pot of chili on the stove a'simmerin'.

WHat's on your table?

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Tomorrow night's dinner is our traditional dinner... I make Chicken Parmesan over spaghetti, with heart shaped pepperonis on top :) Then for dessert we will have Chocolate Italian Love Cake

My DH loves alfredo sauce. Has anyone else tried a "faux alfredo"? I used two cans of organic Cannellini beans, in the blender until smooth, mixed with onion and garlic powder, milk, salt, and about an ounce of grated parmesan cheese. I made some grilled chicken, peas, and poured everything over hot whole wheat organic spaghetti. I didn't tell DH that it was "faux" chicken alfredo until he was eating it. He loved it and couldn't tell the difference!

Farmgirl Hugs,
Nicole

Last night my eleven year old decided she wanted to cook dinner again, since she had gotten all of her school done early and I was feeling so poorly. I had been planning on making Olive Garden's Stuufed Chicken Marsala, which I use to order whenever we went there, and fit in our Italy theme. I was truly worried about her being able to make it, so I suggested we find something else to make, but she was determined she was going to do it! So she made us Stuffed Chicken Marsala over garlic mashed potatoes, with green beans. It was a late dinner, but it was delicious! She always amazes me!

Oh, Shannon! That sounds excellent! And I am DEFINITELY going to try your "faux Alfredo," Nicole - that sounds soooo good! Thanks for sharing!

Tonight we're having what my foster son has dubbed my "Kitchen Sink Sandwiches." He called them this because, he says, they have everything BUT the kitchen sink: Tons of thinly sliced leftover tip roast, cheddar cheese, oven fries, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, homemade sweet hot pickled peppers, a little bit of mayo, a little bit of horseradish sauce, and ketchup, all generously piled onto multigrain bread or large kaiser rolls, hot or cold at your request! I wrap them halfway up with parchment or waxed paper just to hold them together. My foster son says they're so full, you don't need anything else on the side! Definitely NOT for the faint of heart! LOL!

Happy dinner, girls!

Hugs -

Nini

Tonight was Carrabba's Chicken Bryan (though cooked here at home) over pasta, served with corn (I know - a grain! and no veggie!!!) along with homemade gluten free french bread with Carrabba's dipping sauce. Yummy! But I'm not sure wee one in the belly cared for it too much:/

Well, I started out very early this morning making a big slow-cooker full of Grandma's pot roast - the perfect dish for this bitter cold weather! BUT, half-way through the day I realized it's Lent! NO!!! We don't do meat on Lenten Fridays! Ugh! Oh well, not all is lost: The pot roast is now in the fridge ready to reheat for dinner tomorrow night! ;)

So, suddenly faced with having to re-think dinner, and since our son is not a big fan of fish (Don't even ask me how THAT happened! The New England girl in me is absolutely appalled!), I had to get a little more creative with our evening's menu. I decided to make a pasta dish. I made it similar to fried rice, only with spaghetti cut down to 3" lengths. I used rehydrated mixed vegetables, then made a light sauce using garlic, onion, ginger, red chili peppers, soy sauce, lemon, vinegar, honey, a little bit of yellow mustard, some fresh black pepper, and a little brown sugar (but not much). The sauce was akin to a light, runny General Tso's sauce, only not quite as sweet. I tossed in a scrambled egg, just like the "real" stuff, and served it piping hot. Oh my goodness... so good! :)

Next week, I think I'm going to make potato corn chowder and mock clam cakes (using tuna instead of clams - there is just NO good clam to be found here in the 'Burgh - I'm sorry!).

Does anyone happen to have a good recipe for Hawaiian bread?

Hugs -

Nini

Last night was an "Olive Garden at home" feast. I made Tuscan Chicken over fettuccine, stuffed mushrooms, and salad with their dressing. Yummy!

Tonight we are doing a roast with roasted potatoes and roasted veggies. We have to eat our cherry pie from last night as well!
