I found these darling cream soup bowls and liners while visiting
a favorite antique shop last week. I think that they are so
precious with the fluting and the sweet floral pattern with
pink roses ~ my favorite!
Cream soup bowls, or as they are sometimes called, cups,
provide the diner with a pleasant way to sip soup after any
floating contents are first consumed with a spoon. The liner
provides a place to rest the spoon. These are often used at a
luncheon tablescape and are also perfect for serving bouillon.
I don't serve cream soups very often since we try to be
heart healthy at our cottage, but I do love Roasted Red Pepper Soup
and am including my recipe at the end of this post.
For those of you who are interested, this is the Roanoke pattern
from Royal Worcester.
Roasted Red Pepper Soup
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 clove minced garlic
1 can chicken stock
1 can diced tomatoes
1 large roasted red pepper (either freshly roasted
or one from a jar)
2 tablespoons half and half
S & P to taste
Saute onion in small amount of olive oil until
translucent. Add garlic and saute briefly.
Add chicken stock, tomatoes and roasted red pepper cut into chunks.
Bring to boil in small stock pot, and turn down to simmer for
Working in small batches, place in blender and blend until smooth.
Return to stock pot and heat up a bit and add the half and half.

Bentley loves soup, but I don't think he needs a bowl
with handles ~ do you?
