    Default Brussel sprout soup?

    I made the best soup a few days ago, but because my main intention was
    just to use up the leftovers of a dinner that itself was planned
    around using up misc. from the fridge, it will be a little work to
    recreate it on purpose.

    My sister wanted shredded, blanched, brussels, sauted with bacon,
    onioin, garlic, dusted with parm.

    I'd made some baked thing distantly related to chicken parm - slices
    of eggplant; de-boned, flattened chicken thighs; mozz and slices of
    some other cheese. A canned spaghetti sauce.

    (An aside - while I have to buy canned tomatoes, I never buy pre-made
    sauces. A relative dropped off a couple of cases. I was going to
    find a food bank to take them, but then read the ingredients - aside
    from corn syrup being listed second, not scary. Nothing
    unpronouncible. Turns out it's pretty handy for a lazy, quick meal.
    Doesn't taste too bad. A little sweet. DelMonte Traditional.)

    So, soup. Blanching water as base of the stock, with the chicken
    bones and attached meat scraps, the usual trinity and garlic.
    Probably a bay leaf. When that was cooked and strained and reduced a
    little, I added maybe a cup of the brussels/bacon stuff (about half
    and half) and the "drippings" from the chicken/eggplant/cheese/tomato
    thing. Pan roasted more of the 3+1. Did very little adjustment on
    seasonings. S&P, some lemon juice. There was rosemary in the chicken
    dish. Olive oil in there somewhere. I really wasn't paying
    attention. As an afterthought, nuked some potatoes into submission
    and diced 'em in.

    The results - the sister and I both think it tastes pretty good cold.
    The main target of the mission was hot lunch for 90yo alz-dad, who has
    never made any comment, good or bad, about my cooking, and has had
    three bowls. Every time: "Thank you. Good soup, Mike."

    More brussels and eggplant in the next shopping cart, and I'll try to
    do it again.

    Good luck to you coming back to the mix, not an easy thing to second
    time accomplish. Also, bless you for caring for your father, and for
    knowing that he cares right back with compliment as best he may be
    able to.
