    Curried Apple Soup
    Ingredients

    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    2 shallots, minced
    2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
    1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
    2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 small russet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 teaspoon coarse salt, plus more for seasoning
    3 3/4 cups homemade or low-sodium canned chicken stock
    1/2 cup heavy cream or milk
    Freshly ground pepper
    Sour cream, for garnish

    Directions

    Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots; cook until soft and translucent, about 2 minutes. Add ginger and curry powder; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add apples, potato, salt, and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, and cook until potato is tender when pierced with a paring knife, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat, and let cool slightly.
    Use an immersion blender, or transfer mixture to the jar of a blender, working in batches if necessary so as not to fill more than halfway; puree just until smooth (do not overprocess). Return soup to pan; stir in cream, and season with salt and pepper. Place over medium heat until soup is just heated through; do not let it boil. Divide soup among serving bowls, and garnish with sour cream.

    My mom taught me a neat trick when I was a kid. She was getting ready for a party and it was late, she wanted to make ham salad and realized she only had about a quarter lb of ham.
    She ground the ham with about a lb of bologna, made the salad and let it blend overnight. No one at the party realized it was only 1/3rd ham and it disappeared.

    For mine:
    1 7oz ham steak, diced
    1/2 a ring bologna or half a package of sliced bologna, diced

    Place in blender or food processor and grind til meat is finely ground

    1/4 small onion
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    1/4 cup shredded carrots
    1/4 cup shredded red cabbage

    Place all the above in blender or food processor til finely chopped

    Put all ingredients in a mixing bowl and add

    1/2 tsp dill weed
    1/4 tsp mustard powder
    Mayonnaise, to taste

    Mix all the ingredients til well blended, cover and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.

    One of my favorite desserts:

    Top and tail a pineapple and throw it in the oven for around an hour on low/medium.

    When it's soft, peel it and throw some cinnamon sugar on it. (I sometimes throw a splash of spiced rum on it too)

    Eat.

    Yum.
