Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Porcelain mug doubling as a beer stein. Wheel thrown with a pulled handle by Andy Boswell. Celedon and black glaze. Andy Boswell’s mugs are not only good for a hot cup of tea, coffee or cocoa…. they’re pretty great for a cold ale to toast a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day as well!

… or how about a green smoothie in one of Andy’s mugs?Green smoothie in a celedon green mug made on the potter's wheel by Andy BoswellI made this extra green smoothie as follows…

Throw all of the following into a blender, just make sure everything is cut into blender friendly sized pieces, and blend until smooth.

1 cucumber (about 1 – 1 1/2 cups)
3 kale leaves (about 1/2 cup)
1 apple
1 – 2 tsp. raw honey
1 tbl. chlorophyll (optional for extra nutrition and extra green!)
a handful of ice

Handmade Bowl for Homemade Soup

Warm up these late-winter days with a satisfying chicken soup beautifully presented in an eye catching handcrafted bowl made by my son Andrew Boswell! (Chicken soup made by me!)

Porcelain soup bowl by Andrew Boswell glazed celedon and black.

This is one of my son’s fantastic soup bowls filled with the chicken soup I made last night. The bowl is high fired grolleg porcelain glazed with Andrew’s celedon and black glaze. You may not be able to duplicate the bowl yourself, but perhaps the soup. If you would like to give it a try… I made it approximately as follows. I say approximately because I don’t always measure when I cook! 🙂

The soup  ingredients include (approximately)…
6 chicken legs
6 chicken thighs
The following vegetables cut into bite size pieces…
4 – 5 sweet onions
8 – 12 carrots
8 – 10 potatoes
3 – 4 tbls. Better Than Bouillion Organic Chicken Base
2 tbls. dulse flakes
2 tbls. parsley
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. tumeric
2 tbls. olive oil
salt and pepper

I boiled the chicken in water until the meat began to come off the bone and then set it aside to cool. Once cooled, I skimmed off the fat, picked the meat from the bones and set the meat aside. I returned the skimmed broth to an 8 quart pot, added the onions, added water and turned the burner to a medium flame.  Then I cut the carrots and added them. Next, I cut and added the potatoes and the Better Than Bouillion. I made sure I had more than enough water to cover everything but not quite filling the pot.  I added the meat back in when the potatoes were just about cooked, and a bit of salt and pepper. Once the potatoes were cooked, I added the olive oil and it was ready to serve!

That’s my “approximate” soup recipe. Tweak it as needed! You’ll have to visit the gallery or send me an email to purchase one of Andy’s gorgeous bowls.:-)

Blessings!
