I made potato soup and onion scones.

 

Onion Scones

Ingredients:

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup half and half
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • butter

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In small microwave-safe bowl, combine onion, garlic, and butter. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, then stir. Microwave for another 1-2 minutes or until onion is tender. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, pepper and salt in large bowl and stir to mix. Add sauteed onions with the butter remaining in the bowl, milk, and egg. Stir just until combined. Gently press the dough together with your hands to form a ball.

On ungreased cookie sheet, press dough into an 8" circle. Cut the circle into 8 wedges, like you were cutting a pie. Separate the wedges slightly. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Brush with more butter and serve immediately. 8 scones

 

Potato Soup ( I added some shredded cheddar, ham, and green onion)

Ingredients:

  • 5 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 (14-ounce) cans ready to serve chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (13-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 2 Tbsp. dried snipped chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt

Preparation:

Combine prepared potatoes with onions, garlic, broth, salt, and pepper in 4-5 quart crockpot. Cover and cook on low heat until potatoes are tender, 6-8 hours.

When potatoes are tender, coarsely mash with large spoon or potato masher.

Meanwhile, in medium bowl combine evaporated milk and 2 Tbsp. flour and mix well. Add to crockpot, stir well, and cook on high for 20-30 minutes to thicken.

Place sour cream in small bowl and mix with 1 Tbsp. flour; add some of the hot soup liquid; stir well with wire whisk to blend. Gently stir into crockpot along with remaining ingredients and cook on high for 20 minutes longer. Serves 8-10

Albondigas Catalanas - Catalan Meat-balls

1 lb. ground pork

1 lb. ground beef

1 VERY large, peeled carrot (or two normal sized ones)

1 sweet red pepper

1 med. onion

1 bunch flat leaf parsley

a couple of cloves of fresh garlic

8 oz. tomato paste

16 oz. plum tomatoes, chopped

1 1/2 cups panko crumbs

olive oil or pork fat

1 or 2 whole bay leaves

about 1 cup of very good red wine, I used a cabernet tonight.

salt and pepper

You'll need a heavy pot, a food processor and, if you have them, a couple of mini-muffin tins.

Roughly chop the carrots, peppers and onion into big chunks and process for a moment or two in the processor.  Mince the parsley separately.   Add about two thirds of the parsley (without the stems) and the garlic and process until it's all in fine bits. 

Very gently, because this is the secret to tender meat-balls, break up the meat into a bowl, layering it with the panko, the remaining parsley and four or five big tablespoons of the chopped veg mixture and some salt and pepper.  Blend it all together as lightly as you can.

Now crank the oven to 350 and get the muffin tins.  GENTLY take handfuls of the meat mixture and form them into balls that will sit in the muffin tins just barely - kinda off the bottom.  Once you've filled your tins, pop them in the oven for 25 minutes.

Heat the large, heavy pot on the stove.  When it's really hot, add in some olive oil or pork fat, about two tablespoons.  Add the rest of the veg mixture and cook slowly, stirring so it doesn't burn, until it starts to get translucent.  Add the tomato paste and the chopped tomatoes and the bay leaf/leaves.  Cook for a few minutes and pour in the wine.  Stir and lower the heat to simmering.  Salt to taste.

When your meat-balls are ready, gently move them to the pot of sauce and continue to cook for about 20 minutes, at least, turning them every so often. 

Serve any way you like and they taste even better the next day!
