SOBRE LA ALIMENTACION DEL BEBE

En mis años de amistad con tantas mamás a lo largo y ancho de todo el mundo, he aprendido que lo que en un país está totalmente prohibido a una determinada edad es lo más común en otro.

Es el caso, por ejemplo del bróccoli, que en muchos libros y páginas web [serias] con recetas para chicos lo usan a partir de los 6 meses y acá no se recomienda hasta después del año, por lo tanto, las recetas que tengo en este blog son para ser usadas de acuerdo con lo que el pediatra indique como posible alimento para cada chico en una determinada edad.

I don’t know about you, but the second the weather turns cold and signs of winter are all around, all I want to do is curl up and have a nice bowl of hot soup.

I love this soup, because it’s a nice chicken and vegetable soup that warms the soul and brings comfort on the coldest winter days!

I also love how you make the roux for this soup in the oven! So easy, and it makes it a nice creamy texture with no lumps!


Chicken and Vegetable Chowder

{serves 12}

Ingredients:

1 cup potatoes, diced ½ inch
1 cup celery, diced ½ inch
1 cup onion, diced ½ inch
1 cup green pepper, diced ½ inch
1 cup leeks, diced ½ inch
1 cup carrots, diced ½ inch
2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 14 oz can of corn, drained
¾ tablespoon coarse ground black pepper
1 ½ tablespoon salt
¾ tablespoon whole thyme, or ½ tablespoon dried
6 bay leaves
1 teaspoon Tabasco
¾ cup sherry wine (optional)
2 cups water
1 14 oz can chicken broth

¾ cup butter, melted
1 cup flour

1-1/2 to 2 quarts half-and-half milk (depending on how thick you like it)

Directions:
Combine melted butter and flour in oven-proof container and bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. In large saucepan, combine remaining ingredients except half-and-half. Simmer with lid on until potatoes and carrots are thoroughly cooked, about 25 minutes. Stir butter-flour mixture into chowder and stir until thick. Mixture will be slightly less thick than cookie dough. Remove chowder from heat. Stir in half-and-half until blended. Heat to serving temperature, stirring occasionally.

Serve immediately.

*Tastes even better the next day!!

Enjoy!
