So I was told yesterday morning that I needed to get going and make mushroom soup, so I did. I looked up some recipes, thought about what I had on hand and made my own like always. I had two packages of the large button mushrooms that I bought marked down yesterday plus a few dried oyster mushrooms.
I then thought about that nice pot of kale that is growing on the porch.
I really need to use those for something so I went out and picked some fresh kale leaves. The mushrooms and kale went into the crock pot with a quart of homemade stock, a nice sweet green onion, about a half tsp of thyme and minced garlic, some salt and pepper and some milk (I really don't know how much just enough to bring the liquid to the top of the mushrooms and kale.)
Here are my little heads of broccoli. I picked them yesterday. They look pretty big in this picture but they really aren't-- still dipped in some ranch dressing, they should make a nice snack.
