Sunday morning amidst the remaining oysters and shrimpies the dear hubster all of a sudden remembered his mom's oyster artichoke soup and between the stories he was telling he managed to find the recipe in one of her binders! Yipppeee so off to the store he went. Let's do this and don't scoff...this was actually really good and believe me I had my doubts!!
Cast of characters
1 pint oysters...save the liquid
1 Tbsp corn or vegetable oil
1 1/2 sticks of butter
1 bunch green onions, , chopped
1 onion, chopped
8 Tbsp flour
2 cans chicken broth
1 lg can mushroom pieces w/ water
1 can of water
1 can artichoke hearts
1/4 tsp thyme
1 can evaporated milk
cook the oysters in the liquid until it comes to a boil. When oysters curl around the edges (this doesn't take long), drain reserving the liquid.
And there you have it!!! Easy peasy and you lived through chopping up those oysters and now you are ready for some good soup.....well, as soon as you grab a bowl and a spoon and some french bread of course! Enjoy the soup peeps as I was very skeptical but I ended up liking it alot especially after I tossed out the mushrooms! sorry...not a mushroom fan!
Well I am off to get the day started on the treadmill and get ready for our craft bonanza today. See you tomorrow with all kinds of non-cooking cause our faces hurt kind of fun!
Peace, Love and Yummies!
