First, inspiration came when I saw Megan’s recipe, “The Monkey Bread Goes Wild For Garlic”, I sat up and took notice. Come on now, this looks sooo good!
And Sara Moulton’s recipe for Old-Fashioned Chicken Noodle Soup would be oh-so-good with the bread (I just omit the mushrooms).
So I headed off this morning to my local Trader Joes and picked up the necessary ingredients for this great make ahead soup.
There, I picked up this big bag of baby carrots. Hmmm…some for the soup, some for carrot puree, and some for cruidites before dinner tonight.
Then, take out the second 1/ 3 of carrots out of the bag and cut them up for the Old-Fashioned Chicken Noodle Soup. Finally, take the last 1/3 of carrots, microwave cook for about 4 minutes, puree, and then package them into 1/2 cup amounts in snack-size ziplock bags. Don’t forget to label the carrot puree bag with the date, contents and amount packaged.
