- Create. Snap. Eat.
- WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Cabbage and Bacon and Broth, Oh My!
While trying to figure this out, there was something deep within me -- some memory, one that was largely unshaped -- calling to me. It also called for cabbage and bacon.
I am not sure the source of this memory, but it told me that the two would meld wonderfully together. The memory coaxed: "Don't you remember eating this as a child?"
To which I responded: "No, I don't remember at all. But, oooh! That does sound good."
I even consulted my mother, asking her if she'd ever produced a soup with cabbage and bacon.
No, she said.
What about granddad? This seems like something he would do.
Alas, I still do not know from where this memory springs. But I decided to make a soup, first sauteing onions when, upon the cusp of caramelizing, I added the bacon and the potatoes that I did not bother to shave. I was being lazy. *tee hee*
I cooked this in a sampling of butter before adding the sliced cabbage, letting it steam for a few minutes before adding broth. I let this cook for about 15 minutes and served it as is. No accompaniments; no adornments. Near perfection! I had three bowls. Envious Topee -- she wanted to share some with me.
