Mushroom Chicken Curry Soup and Becca's Bday
This soup is my go to. It impresses, comforts, fills, warms and is damn irresistible. I owed Becca a wonderful birthday dinner because I was unable to go to her celebration so I had to knock her socks off with this dinner. I began the birthday dinner search by trying to find an amazing new recipe that didn't include pork or big slabs of beef. I knew I could make chicken, fish, tofu, or full on vegetarian. After looking at countless recipes I settled on this panko crusted tofu chunks but as I thought about it I realized I needed to create a meal that I know well, something that isn't new, something that will impress and Becca is a fellow cook so impressing pays off. So I decided on the chicken curry mushroom soup full of onions some butter and mounds upon mounds of varying mushrooms! I accompanied this meal with roasted broccoli and a large bottle of wine and much laughter. Birthday dinner success! And now she is going to make me an amazing birthday dinner, um yes please!
