Last night, I finally got my act together and made this cream of celery with bacon soup. Or is it soup with bacon? I dunno. But it was pretty damn good. The recipe is here, but my only issue is that 5 cups of chopped celery is way more than just a couple stalks like they suggested.
I don’t think I had enough celery to make it all celeryly so next time I’m chopping up a bunch and a half of celery goodness. Plus, I only had heavy cream so I just diluted that with extra chicken broth.
Don’t you hate it when you look for a tried-and-true-recipe and you find one (like this one) but then the person is like, here’s how I changed the recipe. And then proceed to describe how they substituted everything in the ingredient list for something else, so in the end, it’s like a completely different thing?
Yeah, don’t worry. I didn’t really do that. I was just stupid to buy cream instead of whole milk.
