    Update Post

    Phew !

    Mum's at the footy today with AB, so i'm taking a lazy day around the home.

    Tonight i'm making Karen Martini's "Chicken and Vegetable Brodo", because I saw it in a weekend mag and the pic looked yummy. I like Karen's recipes, they are always simple yet delicious:

    Chicken & Vegetable Brodo ~ Serves 10

    1kg chicken wings
    80ml olive oil
    sea salt & freshly cracked pepper
    8 cups chicken stock
    2 onions, peeled & chopped
    4 cloves garlic, peeled & chopped
    4 sprigs oregano
    4 sprigs thyme
    1 bay leaf
    1 bulb fennel, trimmed & chopped
    2 carrots, peeled & sliced
    1/2 bunch celery, chopped
    4 cups water
    1/2 cup aborio rice
    1/2 cup corn kernels
    50g spaghetti, broken into 6cm pieces
    2 zucchini, chopped
    1/2 cup fresh or frozen green peas
    1/2 bunch flat-leaf parsley, chopped
    crusty bread and grated parmesan to serve ( optional )

    Preheat oven to 200c. Toss chicken wings in 1tbs olive oil and season w/ S&P
    Place on a baking tray and bake for 25-30mins or until golden brown.

    Place wings in a large stockpot and cover w/ stock. Bring to the boil over medium heat, then simmer for 15-20mins or until very tender. Strain liquid and set aside. Allow wings to cool slightly, then remove meat and about half the skin.

    Heat 2tbs oil in the stockpot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, oregano, thyme & bay leaf and cook for 2-3mins, then add fennel, carrots and celery and cook 10mins. Add chicken meat, reserved stock, water, rice, corn & spaghetti and bring to the boil over hight heat. Reduce to medium and simmer for 5-8mins. Add zucchini, peas and parsley and season well. Simmer a further 5mins or until rice & pasta are cooked.

    Add remaining olive oil and serve with bruschetta and grated parmesan, if desired.

    This will be nice to come home to after a day at the footy.

    Michele sent me, MC.

    Sounds like a hearty soup. I don't usually start with wings, but rather the mostly stripped bird after I eat what I want from it. Either way it sounds good. Reminds me a little of something we make here in the Southeast USA called Brunswick Stew as well.

    That sounds very complex; good luck in making it.

    Michele sent me this way.

    Mmm that sounds good...but what is "brodo"?

    Michele sent me - and I'm still having nightmares about the disembodied hands ;)

    Hope the brodo went down well. Hopefully they didn't eat too many pies at the footy!
