Audrey made dinner for us all last night. She received The Redwall Cookbook for her birthday, and 'Hotroot Soup' was the first thing that caught her attention. She wanted to make it a few days ago, but we didn't have everything that was needed... then an opportunity arose and she declined, and finally all the stars aligned and she voluntarily came to the kitchen at dinner time tonight and dove right in.
She did everything herself except cut the onions, and I have to say, it turned out pretty good!
It turned out like a take on potato soup, except a little spicy... and with shrimp. Little Brother wasn't a big fan, but he ate it anyway without complaining, and then we all had a cake ball and watched It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
This Mama would love for this to become a regular thing... I hope she finds some more inspiration and finds herself in the kitchen again soon!
