Yesterday we got our house lights on, our tree up, although not decorated, it is up, and as pretty as ever. I have the house pretty much decorated. And with the chillier weather, I am in a comfort food mood. I had a hankering for Beef Barley soup. And a CRAVING for my friend Armenia's Peruvian Arroz Con Leche. Yummy! This is a picture of the soup before the finishing touch which is to saute a pound of sliced mushrooms in a few T of butter, and then add a quarter cup or so of red wine. Reduce it a little and pour into soup and serve. Top with some fresh chopped parsley. This soup is our favorite!
A peek of the tree, but I will wait until there are decorations on it to post another photo.
This is the rice pudding. I called Armenia to see exactly how she does it. It was yummy, but Armenia, yours is still better!!! You have the touch!
