The day that my boys wait for after Christmas. The day that we take the leftover prime rib and turn it into Prime Rib Soup. Honestly, I think that they prefer the soup (actually it’s more of a stew) to the actual meal. My oldest kept asking me to make this well before the prime rib was ever even cooked or in our refrigerator for that matter.
Simply stated, take your leftovers, bones and all and saute them in a large pot with sliced onions. Deglaze the pan with red wine. Add water and beef broth to cover, salt and pepper to taste and let simmer for hours. About an hour before you want to eat, remove the meat, separate fat and bones, cut up meat into bite size pieces and put back into the broth. Add 2-3 cups of jasmine rice and let simmer until the rice is cooked. Simple, easy, delicious — at least the boys think so.
Today is my mom’s birthday. This year, we won’t be together for New Years as we usually when we celebrate her birthday. The celebration will have to wait for a week or two until I see her, but I wanted to post here to wish her a very happy birthday.
I miss her since we are so far apart and look forward to her visits and when I visit her. She is a kind, generous woman who I am proud to call my mother.
Happy Birthday Mommy! Love you!
