Wild Rice Soup and a Greasy Tip
Ever since I had that Wild rice soup when Wayne's and I were on our Anniversary getaway...I just can't get it out of my mind.
So today Wayne and I made Wildrice, bacon and chicken soup.
It was so so good, there is none left, lol
The only thing I found was it a bit salty, but when I took a taste of the bacon...it was pretty salty in itself.
Wayne loves to alter recipes.
I had to convince him to leave the recipe as is...then if we liked it, we could alter it next time.
Good thing we left it as it was as he wanted to add double the bacon..so it would have been really salty.
Here is the recipe we used....Wildrice Soup.
Are you on Pinterest...I bet you are, most people love it.
I learned this tip from there as well.
When you cook bacon (or any other type of meat with a lot of grease). Line a bowl with tinfoil and pour the grease into the foil.
Then when it solidifies wrap it up and throw the tinfoil and grease in the garbage. No mess :) Link
Just make sure there isn't a tiny hole in the foil...just learn from my experience, lol.
Can you believe that all this grease is from only 8 pieces of bacon.
Another tip..when finding a tip or project from pinterest, please share the link. Most pins come from bloggers just like us and I like to give credit where credit is due.
