New ideas? or Repackaged?



Someone once told me there are no new ideas...only repackaged ones.
Really?
Doesn't that seem hard to believe?
But the more I think about it, it's probably true.

It certainly is in how we (and by that I mean I) cook.
One recipe morphs into another and yet another until the original is a mere memory of its kin.
but it all started somewhere
and I love that.
{although this particular recipe is more like a fraternal twin, than a distant cousin}



I also love getting back to the basics and rediscovering old recipes made from basic ingredients.
Except ones with Crisco.
I just can't jump on that bandwagon.
no matter how light and crispy it makes your pie crust, or how perfectly it fries your chicken.
or fixes that creaky door hinge...
...or smooths your rough elbows...
Enough about Crisco.

I posted a Tuscan Bean Soup recently that was so tasty that I have made it several more times.
each time with slight variations.
Like here...with leftover chicken.
See?
Repackaged.
no Crisco.


It's all good.
