I’ve had several requests for C.J.’s Brother’s signature dish: Garden Island Soup, which he will one day serve at his restaurant, The Greasy Dream. We’ve fine-tuned the recipe over the months, as you can see from the original recipe he wrote. This soup is great, which means my kids will eat it…which I can’t say about a lot of the food I cook.
Here are the ingredients, the measurements vary to taste:
- Cooked orzo pasta (The kids love that it’s rice-shaped but really pasta. Blows their minds every time.
- Knorr Homestyle Chicken Stock (with the necessary amount of water to make a broth
- Fresh rosemary from our garden (and by “garden” I mean “planter”). Chop it super-fine.
- Garlic salt
- Chicken sometimes, if we have some leftover from another meal

Ask me anything. I know some of you have questions for me and, from time to time, I need a writing prompt. Leave your questions for me as a comment at the end of this post and I promise to get to some of them in the near future. I wanna see just what you’re wondering.
