Fall Soup Log #'s 2 & 3

A second installment of souply goodness was had last week as I made a corn chowder with my leftover cabbage, potatoes, fresh rosemary from Dingo's garden, organic corn niblets, fresh ginger, assorted spices and coconut milk for milkiness. This is the first time I've made a "cream of" type soup using coconut rather than dairy or soy milk. It was an astoundingly tasty substitution. Although it sacrifices protein and adds saturated fat, it's a nice solution to anyone looking to avoid dairy products.

Tonight I'm cooking up my third pot: a mess of earthy spices (sage, cumin, bay leaves, curry powders) with tons of fresh garlic and some lentils I've had in my closet for at least three years! So far it smells incredible. I think I'll add some carrots and pearl onions before I serve.

Stave It Off Competition Committee Member Clay Smith has proposed an Iron Chef style cook-off. I suppose I could do that, but I'd rather have an all-soup potluck party at someone's house and let everyone enjoy a variety of tasty creations. If some people feel the need to solicit compliments or compete against other chefs, that's fine too.

I'm in for an all-soup potluck at someone's house (which could be mine if ya'll don't mind cozy quarters).

Yesterday pigs flew over my house. Then the tree in the backyard sprouted $50 bills. And what's this now... someone suggested a competition and Johnbai shyed away?! These omens can only foreshadow one thing - the End Of All Internets.

Or The End Of All Things To Come depending on how muddy your veins are.

Then again, it could be that someone else just beat John to the punch and John was forced into the REactive position, yielding an automatic naysay. Which reminds me, we should have a punch contest! (No, not that kind of punch or Clay would clean up again. And Courtney would be the official cheerleader with her Highland punch-dancing.) A punchbowl-punch contest! My secret ingredient will be a dash of Myoplex for a gelatinous texture. This will allow my punch to double as jello, garnering me extra points for the final round.
Prizes would include mint and lavender soaps from Diane!

Oh...I have some coconut milk in my cupboards...I get excited about new cooking ideas so I am glad that you posted this. Does the coconut milk make the soup taste sweet though???

Coconut milk makes everything all right. Yummmmm, saturated fat! Yum, luscious coconut flavor.

If you hold another tureenluck around Christmas time I'll make a nice marmitako.
