Bou diou

I can't find anything interesting to say tonight or maybe I just can't seem to be able to word anything right. So saturday we were supposed to meet some friends in North Park. After killing about 1 hour and half driving around hillcrest with two unhappy kids in the car we called them to find out they cancelled on the cell phone we left at home! So since we were there we tried this place and it was quite nice it is called Aperitivo in North Park. It is a Italian Tapas wine bar... Interesting combo. So the Tapas part is that the portion are small so you get to sample more. The food is good and the prices reasonnable. We had a nice family meal....

Since we are on the topic of food I will post my chicken noodle soup recipe as Jessica requested
Sophie's chicken noodle soup
Chicken tenders
  • 1 or 2 bacon strips or prociutto or prosciutto dice thingy
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery stalk
  • vermicelli
  • spinach
  • white wine
  • 1 tbs of soften butter mixed with 1 tbs of flour
  1. Heat a little olive oil in a pot
  2. Saute chopped garlic, onion, and the procuitto
  3. Saute the chopped carrot and celery
  4. Saute the diced chicken
  5. "Mouille" with white wine (which means get the chicken wet with a little wine)
  6. Add a lot of water, the fresh rosemary, fresh sage and bay leaf
  7. Let cook for at least an hour or until the juice is tasteful....
  8. Add the spinach and the vermicelli
  9. Add a little more white wine and finally the butter and flour
  10. Let it thicken a little more. Salt and pepper to taste.

The longer the soup simmers the better it tastes. I can't never to make the same but it is always really good, my husband approves every time and you know guys and soup
