Green Bean and Pancetta Soup

Pancetta is a tasty, tasty addition to anything. I say any fatty pork product is a delicious addition.
Green Beans, Pancetta, and Truflle Oil made into a creamy soup.

Fry Pancetta in pan.
Add garlic.
Add green beans,(about 2 1/2 pounds) butter, and truffle oil.
Sautee all ingredients together until beans are cooked through, but still crisp.
Pour all ingredients into blender/Cuisinart and blend thoroughly.
Pour into pot and add two bay leaves.
Pour in about a half cup of heavy cream.
Simmer about 20 minutes.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Remove bay leaves.
Drizzle with Truffle Oil and serve.

Blog Tagging...

Will from cruttenden.blogspot has tagged me in a new blog chain. I was happy to be tagged in one of these before, but found that some of the individuals I tagged did not respond, so that was a bit disheartening.
Regardless, I always love checking in on Will, and am more than pleased to pass this along in his are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Let's see 6 random things about we go.

1. I have never jumped out of an airplane, I used to think that I really wanted to, but now, not so sure.
2. Horror movies sometimes get too much in my head.
3. There is nothing like a perfectly flaky and buttery croissant in the morning.
4. I detested fresh tomatoes until I went to Italy, and coffee for that matter.
5. I started to teach myself the electric bass guitar six years ago, (still workin on it).
6. I love to dance.

Ok, that wasn't too hard, now my links:

Thanks again to Will.
