A Pantry Meal...
flourless chocolate cake, because now that I wasn't schlepping to the grocery store I had more time to bake. I loved that I was able to make this all happen with what I had on hand, and more over that it was likely just as pleasing to my friends as my more "formal" planned meal. Because really, no matter what I cook, the enjoyment of any gathering is really about the company more than what is served.
**over the summer I had cases of tomatoes that I processed in a variety of different ways, the soup came from a batch that I had simply cut in half and roasted with red peppers coated in extra virgin olive oil then pureed and froze. I simply reheated the puree adding some cashew cream, salt, pepper and fresh basil leaves.
