When we wrapped up our last food tour, The Twelve Weeks Of Chicken Wings, MBIP pal and Contributing Writer, Scott Turley had us over to his place for a post chicken wing dinner that he skillfully prepared. We’ve decided to make this an MBIP food tour tradition and so today we’re heading over to Scott’s place for a final round of soup! It’s a Souper Bowl Sunday at The Turley’s! And so it’s off we go!
Souper Bowl Sunday @ The Turley’s
Behind the wheel looking beautiful as always is my friend Nathalie, who Scott and I met on the first week of this soup tour at Kenny’s Westside Pub. Ever since I’ve met Nathalie it’s bugged me that she looks like someone, but I’ve never been able to figure out just who. Well that mystery gets solved tonight, keep on scrolling to find out!
Check out the view on our way to Scott’s! I love it when the sun goes down and always hope that it never comes up again, sadly it always does, but let’s just enjoy this moment for now!
And here we are at the Turley Mobile Manor in Morton!
I love their welcome Mat!
Let’s go in and begin the end of this soupy journey!
Last time we sat outside on the porch, but it’s too chilly for that today, so we sat here in the comfortable front room of the house.
From left to right: Scott’s pretty wife, Moonbaby, Scott and Nathalie.
And here’s the star of the show tonight, Scott’s homemade soup that’s been simmering all afternoon.
Scott said he’s been stirring it all afternoon, let’s take a look at this concoction...
Wow, it looks and smells fantastic. Scott worked up the recipe over the weekend and it’s his take on beanless chili, I can’t wait to try this!
Well, we won’t have to wait long, the table is all set...
And the beanless chili is served!
Here’s the view from my table-side seat...
And Scott took a picture from the other end of the table, okay, time to dig in!
Instead of crackers, Scott suggested that we top off the beanless chili with Fritos, an excellent idea!
This soup was so good! Instead of ground beef, Scott used chunks of steak for the meat portion of the chili and after simmering all day, the steak was really tender and melted in our mouths. The vegetables and tomato based broth was savory, hearty and a tasty treat. Great work, Scott!
Here’s a picture Scott took of Nathalie and I when we first met on the first week’s soupy outing at Kenny’s Westside Pub...
And six weeks later here we are, reunited and it feels so good! Thanks to Scott and Moonbaby for wonderful soup and a fun evening at The Turley household!
Four Soup Nazi’s—Scott really made up some award-winning beanless chili, great work, Scott!
Pit Stop @ The Office On Main
On our way home, Nathalie and I decided to make a pit stop at The Office On Main in Morton.
There’s plenty of seats since it’s a Sunday night, so we settled in at the end of the bar...
And Rachel, the super-cute bartender on duty served us up a couple of beers.
Here’s Nathalie with Trisha, the owner of The Office On Main! It turns out that Nathalie and Trisha work together! Time to cue this up!
And here’s Nathalie being hugged by Lisa Leathers, who we had dinner with the last time we were here! Great to see Lisa again and she solved the mystery of who Nathalie looks like...
Lisa took her guitar off the all and played us an acoustic version of her song, “Mother Under My Wheel.” The song was really great and it was a real treat to hear her play a private concert for us! Too cool!
Great to see Lisa again and hear her play her music! She's looking and sounding wonderful! Thanks to Scott and Moonbaby for a great evening of fun and soup and to Nathalie for driving and hanging out with me! And now, here’s the official Six Weeks of Soup wrap-up.
