I made myself some soup today.  Not Campbell's, instead I made a pot of soup from scratch.  I used the fennel bulb from last week's Door to Door Organics box, and carrots and an onion from this week's box.  I followed this recipe, mostly, but I doubled the wine and cream (surprise!).  I roasted the carrots, fennel bulb, and onion in the oven using EVOO, sea salt, and sugar:

Then I used my immersion stick and blended up the veggies with chicken stock (didn't have the vegetable stock the recipe called for), added butter, wine and cream.  It was delicious!

Looks yummy! There's nothing better than homemade soup:)

I agree! I'd never used fennel before -- I loved it. I'll have to use it more often!

Wow, that looks good. I may just have to try it myself. Glad to see you're enjoying your "vacation."
