Anyway, I've been reading about this blogging group for a while now, and I always wanted to join, but was worried that I wouldn't have the discipline to cook along with the group. Finally, though, I decided that now was as good a time as any, and that this would actually help me to do a better job of updating my blog. It gives me a good reason to come back every week! The rule is that you only need to cook along with the group twice a month, so I shouldn't have any problem keeping up.
Now, on to the recipe! This week's recipe was selected by, and can be found at, Grandma's Kitchen Table, and it was Lemon Chicken Soup with Orzo. I'd made this recipe before, and we had really enjoyed it, so I knew it would be a crowd pleaser. It's kind of like a standard, basic chicken soup, but then to thicken it up at the end you add two eggs. The first time I made this the eggs scared me, but I tried it anyway and was glad I did. It's really good. It's a great way to add creaminess, without actual cream. Yummy. The recipe can be found on pages 86-87 of Ellie's book, The Food You Crave. I'm glad that my first CEIMB recipe was one I was familiar with, because it made it even easier to write about. I'm thrilled to be a part of the group and I hope to cook lots of new and exciting recipes with them in the future!
