  This recipe was borne from necessity: I have a fridge full of bits
 and pieces o f experimental breads, and a dinner-group tomorrow night
 on a Portugese theme.  I researched, modified and tested this
 recipe. It should keep the birds from tos sing things back at
 me. Test-audience gave the soup mega-kudos.  I'm collecting recipes
 for leftover B/M bits. Add them to this note, please?  >>>>>>>
  This hearty, creamy soup is native to south-coastal Portugal where it
 is common ly served with cod steaks or a cod casserole often called
 “Bacalhau a Gomes de s a”. Serve hot topped with freshly baked melba
 toasts [also made from your old br eads, 1/4-in slices in
 convection/micro oven, 60 min at 275f].
