I have thoroughly enjoyed the holidays and time off from my usual obligations! But, it is time to get back to work and putting up new recipes and ideas as you prepare to head back for the semester and off-campus living!
To counter 'the routine' of the upcoming months, I will be sifting thru the many cookbooks I received this Christmas, having friends over to try new flavors, and looking for recipes most compatible with college living, cooking skills and budgets!
Check out this awesome recipe of the classic Greek Chicken & Lemon Soup, or Avgolemono, that will warm your soul as you head into January 2015! Jon (my son) and I always ordered this at the Greek Restaurant in our neighborhood; and, when it recently closed...well, had to find another option!!
(Adapted from This Is A Cookbook by the Sussman brothers)
5 quart stock pot
10 cups Chicken broth
2 1/2 cups long grain white rice
1 rotisserie chicken, meat removed
4 egg yolks
Juice of 3 lemons
1. Wash your hands.
2. Bring broth to a boil and add rice. Reduce heat to a simmer.
5. Add the chicken meat to broth and rice. Stir to combine.
TIP: If you do not take this slow, you will have scrambled, curdled eggs.
