Friday Food and Favorites: Orange Soup (aka Leftovers Soup) and other Original Ideas For Orange

Friday, March 29, 2013

I'm usually not a fan of the color orange, but I came up with this genius idea for a "leftovers soup" that I just had to share with you all, and with the soup being this rich golden orange color, the idea for this post was born.

Now I know I am probably not the first one who came up with the idea of a leftovers soup, but I was pretty tickled with how fabulous the results were, and even more thrilled that I didn't have to throw out pans of perfectly good food.

Here are the leftovers that I had: Roasted butternut squash, zucchini in tomato sauce, couscous, and chicken soup with matzo balls. I sauteed some onions and dumped all the leftover ingredients into the pot besides for the matzo balls. I then added more water and some more salt, pepper and garlic powder and simmered for 1/2 hour. Then I immersion blended the whole thing and dropped in the matzo balls. YUM! My family polished off the entire soup right away!

Here are some more inspiring ways to include the color orange in your life:

 Accessorize your outfit with a bold orange clutch...
Accessorize a room with this vibrant hue...make it modern!
 Or make it rustic by tying a burnt orange ribbon around your cutlery for your next dinner party.
 Cool off warm orange tones by pairing it with cool blue, like this...
...or this.
Try it on your lips...
 Pair it with hot pink for a popping party theme:
Bring a dull corner of your home to life by creating a fun orange inspired home office:
Choose orange for your next fabulous gown:
Until next time... have a wonderful Shabbos, a fabulous weekend and for those who celebrate Passover...Moadim B'Simcha...have a joyous holiday!
