Last night for Meatless Monday we made Vegetarian chili and creamy cornbread muffins. It was perfect for the dreary day. I can honestly say, I liked it better than a meaty, heavy chili. The bulgar in the stew gave it texture without heaviness. Don't let the long list of ingredients intimidate you; it was easy!

Saute in olive oil until soft

On cold, wet, winter days Michelle, Maddy, Roxy, Apple and I enjoy this soup made with leftover Christmas turkey and don't trouble ourselves with the lack of a missing turkey sandwich!

It is the soup I send to people to mend and heal. It is the soup that not only says, “Feel Better Soon, but also I Love You!” and really, it is a lovely, cozy simple chicken soup.

The next three ingredients are optional. If I am making this soup for Tom, they are omitted.
Above and beyond the healthy benefits (which you can see here,) homemade stock is one of the simple little details in life that add pleasure, give peace and warm the body. Make time, make stock and share the love.
Homemade Chicken Stock:
Place the chickens, onions, carrots, celery, parsnips, parsley, thyme, dill, garlic, salt and peppercorns in a large stockpot. Add 7 quarts of water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer uncovered for 4 – 5 hours. Skim off any foam that comes to the top. Let cool. Strain the entire pot through a colander and discard the solid. You may refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for 6 months.
