Italian Meatball Sandwich And Bacon Cauliflower Soup.

This soup is made from the big cauliflower that I got on sale last week. It was really too big to eat and even though I got a few dishes out of it, it remained an ominous presence in the fridge.
This, again, was a very popular soup back in the day and it always went under the name of 'Crème Dubarry';King Louis XV's mistress. I don't think the name 'cauliflower' was elegant enough then and a lot of the ruling class had dishes named in their honor.
Soups used to be called by their culinary names before the cooking craze took over the universe.
These days we are more inclined to call a spade a spade and not worry about fancy names. However, this was the name of this soup in those days. It is still delicious. A rose by any other name.............
Meatball sandwich is pretty straightforward. This was really good and made with baby peppers I found in the shops the other day plus some Walla Walla sweet onions, tomatoes and lots of garlic and olive oil. I cooked the sausage from raw in the sauce.
