Soup Sampler

Potato Leek and Vegetable. Make the base stock from scratch. It makes all the difference.

Chicken Noodle. I ran out of noodles, so I just chopped up some lasagna noodles.

Egg On Toast

Egg on toast, for two. My wife is nuts for eggs. The problem is getting the egg not to stick to the pan. I think it is the difference in temperature between the egg and the pan. Most of the eggs that hit a pan come straight from the fridge. I try to let mine come up to room temp (few minutes) before they hit the hot pan (preferably cast-iron, to hold as much heat as possible). Less scrubbing in the clean up phase.
