While making my menu for the week, I had no idea we would be experiencing a day full of rain. Yesterday was absolutely wonderful, and such a blessing for Southern California! I even went for a jog in the pouring rain early in the morning and had more energy than usual. It felt glorious! We rarely experience cooler temps in September, and certainly not rain!
Anyway, I had asked my daughter Natalie what I should put on the menu for dinner, and she requested broccoli and cheese soup bowls. I have always wanted to try to make soup bowls, but never got around to it. Since she said it and I was at a loss for ideas, I wrote it in. Done. Now I had to try!
I really wasn’t sure what I was doing. I just divided the dough into 6 rounds and let them rise on parchment individually in bowls. In the meantime, I worked on the soup…
As I suspected, the two little ones didn’t eat much of their bowls. But, I was ok with that. I used my new favorite simple bread recipe I keep talking about, so I only wasted a little flour… these were so much cheaper than buying 6 little bread bowls! I would rather waste a bit and let them have the full fun of eating out of a bread bowl than make them eat out of a regular bowl while watching their big sisters have all the fun. Not to mention, the chickens loved the leftovers!
I’m excited to try these again some time!
