Pretty proud of myself, who needs Olive Garden?

When my kiddo got home from school I asked her what she wanted for dinner. Her reply was Chicken Gnocchi soup from Olive Garden. Well, that was out - the closest Olive Garden is 45 minutes away. So I found a copy cat recipe and made it myself. My first ever attempt at making gnocchi and it was a success!

Morgan ate 2 bowls

There you go, spoiling that girl again!

Looks good, though. Looks a bit like Clam chowder. I make the best clam chowder. The secret? Put in some fire roasted green peppers. I grill them now and keep in freezer, all blackended from the flames. Yummy!

I got pie crust chilling so will make apple pie tonight. It's no wonder we are all fat here.

That sounds good too Caroline! I love clam chowder.

We're working on the fat front here too (well at least I am, Morgan has a furnace like metabolism) She's getting doubly spoiled tonight, she picked up enough pears in the yard (I peeled & sliced) that she made pear crisp that is almost ready to come out of the oven

I wish you would just adopt me and get it over with. It kills me to hear about the yummy things YOU make for folks. I want someone to cook for ME!

That would be fun! But the drought has put a real wrench in my canning :( The pear trees usually bear so much fruit that we get sick of them and I donate a truckload (literally) to the food pantry. This year, I might be lucky to get a couple canner loads for us :( Same with making jelly - didn't do any, raspberries & blackberries just didn't amount to much at all.

Most normal years, it's a rarity that I buy any fruit, veggies (except for peas - hate, hate, hate shelling peas) or jelly. This year I will have to give my money to kroger. Big bummer.

Looks delicious! Congrats! FYI, if you go to olive garden's website, they give many of their recipes for their dishes.

I'm jealous. My pears are still tiny (like golf ball size) and probably aren't even going to mature this year. Pear crisp sounds so-o-o-o-o good!

That's good to know, thanks! (you've likely just added a few lbs for me)

That stinks. Ours are small compared to normal, I'm used to having giant sized ones (our trees are Bartlett's) but they are still nicer than the ones I saw at the grocery store today. The horses are all a bit peeved because I am not sharing with them this year.

I am not the cook in my place, but I showed him that picture and said "you should make that" He shook his head in agreement
