For certain values of help.

Feeling big and powerful after shredding David Attenborough to bits, Olive takes on a herd of lions:
After an hour or so of Olive working herself up over Planet Earth, I imposed a mandatory time out and banished her downstairs.
She sat at the bottom of the stairs and pouted for a good FIVE WHOLE MINUTES OMG before tip-toeing back upstairs, flopping down on the couch and pointing her pout in my direction.
Do you think David Attenborough would act like this?
No. Drama queen.
I would very much like to eat this brie croque monsieur for lunch today.
Actually, make that everything from Framed Cooks.
Melt 2T butter in a pot over medium heat. Add the following diced vegetables: 1 small onion, 1 carrot, 1 stalk celery. Sauté 6 minutes or so, until soft.
Add 2 large (28oz) cans crushed tomatoes, 4 cups chicken stock, and a few sprigs of parsley. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer covered for about 25 minutes. Remove the parsley and puree the soup in a blender in batches.
Return to the pot and stir in 1/2c heavy cream and 1T butter. Add salt a pepper to taste - keep in mind that homemade stock has very little salt (if any), so definitely feel free to add extra salt.
Serve with grilled cheese, tater tots and homemade ketchup.
Hi, I'm Valette
