Christian’s Posole Soup

We’ve been making Posole since our days in San Diego back in 2002-2005. For those not familiar with it Posole is a traditional Mexican stew that can be different family by family...different meats, broths and veggies based on what they have available (either in their area or as leftovers in the fridge). Two staples of this dish though, are hominy (hulled corn with the bran & germ removed...when ground it becomes grits) and cabbage for garnish.
Pork & Noodle Soup with Shrimp

Christian cooked the Pork Noodle Soup with Shrimp (recipe below) tonight since work ran a bit late for me.  That’s another fabulous thing about having a menu posted on the fridge...if I’m not around Christian can dive right in and at least start cooking for us!

Christian’s a good cook, but can get a bit flustered at times so the fact that he told me that this was an easy recipe means it really is easy which makes it perfect for weeknights.  And we both think that it turned out a restaurant quality soup...so much so that we had a hard time restraining ourselves and saving enough for our leftovers night!
