Here is a cooking post. At least, I’m going to call it a cooking post, but perhaps I am stepping up in class. No matter. It is Tired Tuesday, I fixed something for dinner that did NOT involve the telephone and a credit card, and I’m going to write about it.
First I poured myself a small glass of Chardonnay, because I wanted to cook with wine.
I had an open box of chicken broth in the refrigerator (I drank one mug of it recently when my stomach was bothering me) (you see, I DON’T write a blog post about every little ache and pain, although it sometimes feels that way). I also had some leftover brown rice. I put them both in a pot on the stove and turned on the burner. I went to the freezer and pulled out broccoli and spinach, which I also added to the pot.
Then I went out the the living room, sat on the couch and looked a Facebook. I feel that is an important part of the recipe. After a while I went back out the the kitchen and added garlic powder, parsley, basil and oregano to the pot. When it started boiling, I lowered the heat and let it simmer for a while.
Steven and I ate the soup with bread and butter. Steven said it was very good, not too heavy, just what his stomach needed. I hope this modest little post is just what my blog needed. As for me, I may have another small glass of Chardonnay. Happy Tuesday, everyone.
