Thanks to B.J. who told me the other day that she was having soup for supper. This inspired me to make some soup of my own! I also baked a loaf of bread. I haven't done this in a long time, so I kind of forgot how to bake bread. Fortunately, I had the old breadmaker, complete with its handy-dandy guide to help me along the way! I tweaked a recipe than I had been using--it worked out pretty well anyway. I made a loaf with half bread flour and half whole wheat flour. I also substituted honey for the sugar, and I put a half cup of oats in it.
As far as the soup went, I tried to do a low-sodium vegetable soup. I started out with some water (I don't tend to measure when I make soup). I then added one large potato, cubed. I cooked this for a while, and then I added one can of dark red kidney beans, one can of corn, and one can of peas. Side note: being a vegetarian, I have soy meat substitutes, most of which need to be refrigerated or frozen. Anyhow, I dumped some frozen Tender Rounds (these are a veggie's equivalent of meatballs) into the mix to thaw out and gather some of the soup's flavor. I did mess up by not adding seasoning earlier to let it all cook together, but eh, it was good anyway. After the Tender Rounds had cooked, I added a half can of tomato paste and shook in a hearty amount of Montreal steak seasoning. Voila!
Now I'm curious to know what kind of soup Calista Blu had.
