I Lied… But it’s OK!

avgo soup

Yesterday I was featured on the mega-blog Hometown Pasadena (enough shameless self promotion… geeze Michelle!)  You may not have even realized my terrible deception about which I’m reluctant to speak… but I really must come clean.
My avgolemeno soup recipe has more than 10 ingredients.  There I said it.
On my profile page right here on this very blog I clearly state that I turn a blind eye to any recipe with more than ten ingredients… Sigh… obviously not the whole truth.
BUT–It’s OK!  Honestly.  There are two reasons why: The avgolemeno ingredients are so rudimentary (milk, egg yolks, rice–stuff like that!) that even though, technically, the list exceeds 10 items, it will not require a trip to the exotic spice store or even the grocery store for many folks.  You likely have most of the stuff on hand.  The second reason why my seemingly reprehensible behavior is OK is that this soup is so incredibly delicious that if you make it there’s no way you can’t forgive me.
I considered altering the information on my “about Michelle” page to reflect reality, but I just couldn’t do it.  I mean, I may be a liar, but I’m not dishonest!
I thought you’d like to know that I have been invited to be a regular contributor to Hometown Pasadena’s weekly Mangiamo feature.  You can look forward to a delicious little something from me the last Tuesday of every month!  (and might I add: Wooo-hooo!)

For the recipe for the fabulous bowl of soup you see above, please either click on the Hometown link in this post, along the side of my home page, or tucked into the recipe page under soups.
