Soups on with a side of cornbread!

I sat with my cookbook and made a grocery list of all the things I needed for a few recipes. I really needed to collect several things I was lacking in the spice cabinet and liquids like sherry, red and white wine vinegar. I started this morning with marinating a beef brisket, it has to marinate for 24 to 48 hours.

I decided to make Sherried Tomato Soup and a pan of Cornbread.
first the ingredients for the soup
white or yellow onion
diced tomatoes
tomato juice
chicken base
black pepper
heavy cream

Lets get to cooking. first start of with onions and butter in pan.

Then after you get the onions translucent add the tomato juice and diced tomatoes.

add the sugar and chicken base

then add the heavy cream.

then add the pepper, sherry and the herbs

Then just keep warm and serve.

The skillet cornbread she makes was very good and very easy to make

Ingredients are.
yellow cornmeal
all purpose flour
baking powder
baking soda

mix the dry ingredients together and the wet together

warm the skillet with 2 teaspoons of shortening

 once you pull it out add the mixture and bake for 25 min.

Enjoy and try a new recipe once in a while. I love to cook and it is a stress reliever. I really get a joy when someone likes my cooking and requests a dish I have made. Enjoy
