Local forecasters are seeing weather models as high as 60º in a week or so, and bulbs are currently pushing up through the frozen tundra. Spring cannot be far behind, can it? But with snow and ice still covering the ground and roof in wide swaths, we are still decidedly in the midst of soup weather.
My new food processor arrived just in time to test out a new-to-me recipe in my go-to soup book, The Daily Soup Cookbook. This time around I tested the Chicken Pot Pie, which is dressed in 3" homemade biscuits, courtesy of my new food processor and its dough blade. My old processor didn’t have a dough blade, so this is a perk to the old one giving out before I was monetarily ready for the “dream processor.”
This recipe is another award-winner, as far as I’m concerned. Can’t wait until it cycles back through as leftovers!
Overall I’m pleased with the food processor, though I’m underwhelmed with Target.com. Their shipping is not as transparent a process as I like. I received an email from Target stating that my order had been shipped a whopping five calendar days before it was transferred to UPS to ship on to my address. UPS didn’t even receive the billing information until two days after Target stated it had been shipped. Something is up. While I’m certain there’s a reasonable explanation (my guess is an actual origination point in Mexico as UPS ultimately received it in Mesquite, Texas), I find the slight of hand to be unsettling.
Worth a test, and the final outcome was positive.
BTW, during today’ stroll through the yard checking bulb and bloom progress, we found a large tuft of rabbit fur in one spot of the yard, and a big pile of scat from a meat eating predator in another. Seriously. Big and furry. My guess is bobcat. No well-fed domestic dog would eat an animal fur and all. At least none I ever care to meet.
