It has been quite awhile since I have posted the feature His & Her Dinner, but I am happy to be bringing it back now! For those who may not be familiar with His & Her Dinner let me explain. My husband is one of the pickiest eaters I have ever known. When we moved to California we decided to try to cook at home as much as possible in order to save money. However, with his very limited pallet it soon became very difficult to find meals that we could both enjoy together. So to solve this dilemma I began cooking 2 different meals, one for him and one for me, but used the same base ingredients to create both which still helped cut down on our food expenses. You can catch up on past episodes by clicking the links below.
And without further adieu, here is His & Her Dinner #7
The Soup Edition
Carl has always enjoyed a nice bowl of soup and has actually expanded the variety of soups he'll eat. By expanding I mean he went from eating 1 kind of soup to enjoying 3 kinds of soup now! I should also tell you that it took several attempts before he would try soup that I cooked-if it didn't come from a restaurant or from the grocery store's hot soup bar he didn't want to eat for some reason. Thankfully, one day the store was out of their Loaded Baked Potato Soup so I told him again that I could make him a soup just like it and he finally agreed to try it. He now asks me to make it regularly.
His: Cheesy Potato Soup with Bacon
If you hadn't noticed, Carl likes to eat almost an entire loaf of French bread with his soup!
Her: Fall Chowder
Look familiar? That's because I just posted the recipe, click here to get it. Remember it had 3 kinds of peppers, spices, corn, and potatoes! It was exploding with flavor. Speaking of exploding, I took some to work the next day and put it in the microwave to heat and when I came back to check on it I found that it had exploded all over the microwave! Not only did I spend my lunch break cleaning up the mess, I also went hungry! That is what happens hen you don't own a microwave for over a year-you forget how to use it and end up ruining your lunch!
The base ingredient this time is Campbell's Creamy Potato Soup. It's such a versatile ingredient. I also use it when I make myself Chicken Pot Pie, which Carl still refuses to eat.
If you enjoyed this episode of His & Her Dinner, you'll love the Thanksgiving episode coming soon!
