Paint or not to paint… meatless Monday recipe

Monday, March 1st, 2010

Hey all,

Hope everyone is doing well…. so …. I need some opinions please…. I have these two lovely nightstands…. in major need of an overhaul… one I believe is solid Cherry wood … the other …. solid maple?  Anyhoo…  I have been contemplating whether to paint them once I strip off all the goo and damage and sand them down …or leave them in their natural state…

If I paint … any color suggestions? 

I was thinking…..  mmmm… perhaps a lovely grey?  white?  french bleu?    Or simply leave the wood sanded as is…???

SO …. whatya think? ….  Doooo tell …

Ok so… on to my meatless Monday recipe…. I will only do these on occassion so at not to bore anyone with just meatless Monday posts….  I am also looking for recipes …  If anyone has one they want to share I will do a link back to their blog…

LEEK CORN AND POTATO SOUP

Put cloves of garlic .. … and shallots in pan with olive oil… I am not going to measure this out because I love a ton of garlic.. others may want less…  and brown

Then add potatoes and corn …   MOL to carmalize …. I think this adds a nice flavor with the browned bits….  some people actually roast their potatoes first…. which is fab if you are not in a hurry …   for a quickie though this is a great way to do it…. season to taste….

Once done add chicken stock ….  leeks  …….   and touch of butter

Cook until potatoes  are tender and soft …. then take a potato masher and mash….  some… not all …….of the potatoes …. this gives it a nice consistency …. thickness….. to the stock ….  (some people blend their soup at this point )  just depends on whether you want a big pot of really thick soup or a nice base with lots of veggies in it…

Then serve with or without parmesean cheese… 

Yumm and yummmmmmm!!!

Thats it for me my friends….  Hope you enjoy…. cant wait to hear your opinions on the furniture…. I will do some photos once I have stripped the varnish and such and sanded down the furniture….  can wait to tackle this …

CIAO FOR NOW
