It's recipe o'clock: Revoltillo con sardinas!

In some cases, things that you loved from when you were young can present themselves to you in your memory as a single scene. This is a scene that I remember from when I was younger, like early teenage years:

Waking up pretty early on a fall Saturday morning, with most of the windows and sliding glass doors already opened by my dad in the living room and kitchen. Relatively “cold” for Florida … we’re talking like 65 degrees here at the chilliest, though. The Gators will be on TV, probably that 3:30pm slot on CBS, but that’s hours away. The TV is off for now and my dad’s stereo is playing some weekend playlist via an early non-iPod MP3 player.

I know we’re going to have to do yard work before the Florida game, because in that state you have to mow your lawn every other week to keep up with the rate the grass grows. Right now, though, it’s time for breakfast and my dad is making something that was a fixture during these years. It involves canned fish and Cuban crackers.

Alright, anyway. The Sorry, Internet kitchen is back at it again with the good eats today, creating nachos for you to devour during The Big Game™. I made nachos for my own consumption during two recent weekends of the football season, after I realized that football would soon be over, and becoming dismayed and worried that I hadn't yet reached a respectable amount of nacho consumption during the course of the season to date.

I ventured forth and created two different types of nachos on these weekends, sampling two different recipes that I mostly at least kinda invented myself, knowing full well that one of them might end up on this blog. After the huge popularity of my pizza soup recipe blog, which drew one of the largest crowds in presidential inauguration history (real and unedited photo proof of this is to your immediate right, or below if you're on mobile), I knew I could not wait too long to post another recipe, lest my followers riot.

I now love pizza soup

I now love pizza soup

Yesterday I made pizza soup at home for dinner. This is the second time Katie and I have had it -- she made a version of it a couple weeks ago and I tried my own stab at it this time. I shared my love for this meal on social media and several folks on the website Twitter.com asked me for a recipe.

This is a good time to note that I did not invent pizza soup. I would never dare to claim this, as the person who invented pizza soup deserves their own spot in the Official Soup Hall of Fame (OSHOF), which is probably headquartered somewhere in the midwestern United States, if I had to guess. I did, however, combine a few different recipes that I found on the web to wind up at the concoction below.

If you're not a meat-eater, I would recommend replacing the ground beef, pepperoni and beef broth with whatever you might use as substitutes in those cases. Or, you can search the web (Google.com is my personal favorite search engine) and other smarter people / better cookers than me have probably done vegetarian and vegan versions of this.

Without further ado, here is the first and perhaps last recipe I will ever post on my blog.
