Karl’s Ham and Barley Soup

I do not always look on-line for ideas for dinner. Sometimes, I simply say, “What do I have in my kitchen?” I had spent too much of today planning my birthday/Chinese New Year’s feast. When I pulled my head out of the computer, I noticed that it was time to start making dinner, before a hungry wife and daughter appeared on my door step.

Karl’s Ezo Gelin Soup

Ezo galin soup is a Turkish dish that comes with its own mythology. I was attracted to the recipe because of Jan’s dietary restrictions. Her oral surgery is healing, but she cannot eat solid food. Cooked bulgur, lentils, and rice seemed like just the ticket for a dish that was soft, but not blended into baby food.

Karl’s Curried Sweet Potato Soup with Apple Crème Fraîche

I went to the dentist today, so I have joined Jan’s soft food diet for the day. Despite last night’s yam fail, she sent me a Martha Stewart recipe she wanted me to try. It is not really in my nature “to do” Martha Stewart. I did not change everything about the recipe, but just about. This is more of a “inspired by” rather than an “adapted from” recipe.

Karl’s Calabrese and Cabbage Soup

My nephew, Braden, is staying at Myr’s place and is leaving today. For one last meal together we decided to have a Sunday lunch at her place before they ran him to the airport. Before Miriam and Chris went to his mother’s for Christmas, they gave us some Calabrese sausages. I thought it would be a good idea to uses these for this meal.

Karl’s Chickyssoise

This is Christmas Day and we went to Tai Pan in Palo Alto for dim sum. They do an excellent dim sum for Christmas (but make your reservation well in advance, we almost waited too long). With all of that rich food, we knew that we would want something simple for dinner.

Karl’s Georgian Butternut Squash Soup

Our friends Pat and Jim “squash bombed” us a few weeks ago. This was literally a baby sized squash 8 pounds and 20 inches long. I roasted it and used much of it in a mitzvah lasagna for a friend whose cancer has come back for the third time. I am using the rest in tonight’s soup.

Karl’s Italian Sausage, Beans and Barley Soup

Jan is still struggling with her cold, so she wants soup for the second day in a row. I did not want to make the same thing I did yesterday, so I was trolling through the WordPress reader for soups. I looked at several, before one finally caught my eye.

Karl’s Fishyssoise

Vichyssoise is a fancy name for a potato and leek soup that can be served either hot or cold. Not one to leave well enough alone, I started adding seafood to it a couple years ago. It soon became known as Fishyssoise in our household.

Karl’s Gazpacho

Traditional gazpacho always has bread in it, but modern variations frequently leave it out. Jan thinks of this dish as salsa soup. With Miriam’s soft food diet and Chris’ keto diet I can make all three of them happy by serving the bread as toasted croutons on the side.

Karl’s Cold Cauliflower and Arugula Soup

Miriam is having a house warming/birthday party this weekend. She asked me to bring a cold soup for the event. However, she does not want any red soups, like gazpacho, because she now has a white carpet. I could do vichyssoise, but that would be too common. I thought about a cold white bean soup, but Chris is on a low carb diet right now.  I looked on-line, and nothing I saw really spoke to me.
