Ah, leftovers. Our kitchen is filled with foodstuffs in varying stages of decomposition. I'm only willing to eat the not-that-decomposed stuff, of course. Tonight, cream of celery soup sounded better than eating a bunch of celery and carrot sticks.
What to Do
- 1-1/2 cups chicken stock
- 6 ounces celery, sliced thin
- 2-3 medium carrots, sliced thin
- 1 medium shallot, chopped
- 1-1/2 cups heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1-1/2 cups hot milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
Garnish each bowl with a few gratings of fresh nutmeg.
