Fall is here. All we want are comfort foods, even more so since we both got hit with a pretty nasty head cold/flu upon arrival back in the States. I blame compromised digestion from eating Mexican corn chips-yes we ate lots of corn chips because they were amazing, and gluten free. Then several plane rides, and travel stress. Plus of course, not the best food quality (no home cooked meals).
Bill and I were really craving tomato soup, and he was sick with lots of nose blowing so I wanted to avoid dairy. This was a good thing, and a bad thing. Good because we have gotten several questions regarding whether our Yorkshire Puddings from Gather would work with coconut milk instead of heavy cream. The unfortunate part was that I really wanted creamy tomato soup, and although the coconut milk was a good addition, heavy cream would have been really amazing. Coconut milk is a fine substitute, and I know many people who are allergic to dairy are very grateful to have coconut milk, but let’s face it… nothing compares to grass fed heavy cream.
This meal really hit the spot. The Yorkshire Puddings turned out fantastic, and the soup was very tasty!
