Soupapalooza  2012

It’s that time of year……..cold winter weather and soup.  They just go hand in hand.  Even if you’ve had a mild winter like many of us have, there’s still nothing better to warm the soul.  Soup, stew, chili, chowder…….have all been staples in our diets for centuries and  can be the perfect appetizer or a quick and easy meal.

Last year Kristen of Dine and Dish and I hosted Soupapalooza and it was such a huge success we promised to bring it back this year, even bigger and better!

So this year KitchenAid, Kristen and I, along with some other wonderful sponsors are inviting you to share your favorite soup recipes here at TidyMom.net and DineandDish.net starting February 28 thru March 5, 2012.

and like every great party……..there will be prizes from some fabulous sponsors!!

Big thanks to KitchenAid, Red Star Yeast and Le Creuset

        sorry, I forgot to put my reply to that here (I emailed Robyn the answer). I’m sorry to say, prizes will only be available for US residents only. Shipping to Canada was an issue with one sponsor and I have since found out, Canada has some very different laws for random drawing giveaways. I’m so sorry….I hope you’ll still join in and share your favorite recipe though!!

    I do not have a blog so here is my favorite kind of soup recipie…

    Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
    Ingredients
    4 cups chicken broth
    2 cups water
    2 cooked, boneless chicken breast halves, shredded
    1 (4.5 ounce) package quick cooking long grain and wild rice with seasoning packet
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup butter
    2 cups heavy cream

    Directions
    1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine broth, water and chicken. Bring just to boiling, then stir in rice, reserving seasoning packet. Cover and remove from heat.
    2. In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper and flour. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in contents of seasoning packet until mixture is bubbly. Reduce heat to low, then stir in flour mixture by tablespoons, to form a roux. Whisk in cream, a little at a time, until fully incorporated and smooth. Cook until thickened, 5 minutes.
    3. Stir cream mixture into broth and rice. Cook over medium heat until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes.

    I love Kitchenaid products and I hope I will win this contest, it would be a blessing to own one of these items, that I have heard are the best.
