Like many in our area and our part of the country the schools remained closed today. In fact the students have only went to school one day this week. With roads that are snow covered and slick it become hard to see the road and dangerous to head to school.
Having to stay inside and out of the snow and cold weather may eventually start to feel like a forced arrangement. Are you starting to run out of things to do inside? Creativity need a boost? Well never fear we have a few that you may just love. Have no idea what to cook to please appetites? We are here to help you with that as well.
Get in the kitchen as a family. Even the young ones can help out. Kids can help with tasks like measuring , shredding cheese, stirring and many other things. Here is an easy guide to what children can do at different ages. Together make up a batch of Roasted Vegetable Soup.
3 to 4 cups chicken broth
1 quart roasted winter vegetables
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
In a large saucepan, heat 3 cups of chicken stock. Mash or puree the Roasted Winter Vegetables and the chicken stock using a masher, food processor, or handheld blender. Pour the soup back into the pot and season to taste. Thin with more chicken stock and reheat. The soup should be thick but not like a vegetable puree, so add more chicken stock and/or water until it’s the consistency you like.
Serve with whole wheat bread or tortillas for a great lunch or snack to warm you up when you come in from the cold!
