|Pull, Sarah, PULL!!!|
And here's Tim Minchin's "White Wine in the Sun." You might want to grab a box of tissues...
Anyway, tonight's meal consisted of:
Cream of asparagus soup
Tuna stir fry
*Recipes and/or sites that we used will be at the end of the meal's post.*
It has been raining all day, and a hot soup was just perfect. This recipe had been sitting in our stockpile for a few weeks, and we decided that it was time to try it out as an appetizer. We almost made a tuna noodle casserole to go with it, but we're holding off on that until after Passover (starts Monday!). Instead, we're using up some more of our rice by doing an old favorite - tuna stir fry!
We started by chopping veggies and trimming our mountain of asparagus. And I do mean mountain.
So we go through the directions, one step at a time, and then we got to the step about blending the ingredients until it was smooth... Oops. We don't have a blender! No matter, we just skipped that step and continued to the end, and we had a cream soup base with chopped asparagus in it. It was still delicious!
|I swear it tastes amazing.|
Before we could eat it though, we got the stir fry done. Then while the rice was cooking we enjoyed our soup - two cups each! We had to go back for seconds. And since we had used the white wine in the soup, it obviously went with the meal. Yum!
PS... We got our wine glasses at the dollar store today. Rebecca chose a fine CocaCola green-tinted glace and Sarah was taken with a cactus glass. The wine was René Barbier, Mediterranean White - a Spanish table wine. It was sweet and delicious and worked really well in the soup too.
After we finished our appetizer, our rice was ready, so we served up some tuna stir fry on hot rice! Mm mm good. Best meal ever? We had seconds again.
|We agreed that this may quite possibly be our favorite|
meal of the semester.
We both had food coma. Rebecca even took a short nap before cleaning began. Sarah is excited for kosher-for-Passover leftovers!
Also, we realized how much we're going to miss the mess we make in our common room every weekend.
|We shall miss you, dear Kitchen.|
We'll make messes in other kitchens!
Next weekend will be a Passover friendly meal. We're looking forward to it!

Cream of Asparagus Soup
We used vegetable oil. Also, the recipe says 800 grams (4-5 bunches) of asparagus. We thought that was a ridiculous amount, so we bought two bunches. We also skipped the blending, so we have no idea how 4-5 bunches would turn out. The unblended soup was still really freaking fantastic! Sarah may try it blended at home next year and blog about it.
Tuna Stir Fry
See previous post:
We doubled it, but forgot to double the tuna. Still tasted great. We also skipped the lemon again.
