soup you may hate, and other good pictures.

well, i can’t say that you’ll come away from reading with a recipe to try, but i can promise that for another week. trying things means that you sometimes….

fail? have your family and friends making you promise never to try *that* again? swear off beets for the rest of your life?



the soup was spring country soup out of a cookbook by madeleine kamman called ‘the new making of a cook’ and i had memories of good vegetables, sour cream on top, and really, really, i was looking forward to cutting all the round veggies into nice slices. but the beets were too much, so you’ll notice there isn’t even a picture of the finished soup. we ate it, and i liked it, but so much was there a discrepancy between my likes and everyone else that i ate a LOT of spring country soup.

i have laundry to fold, but as a parting word (or 1,000), here is a happy backyard moment. the small people of the house wanted to have matching shoes, and i was happily reminded of alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day by judith viorst as they picked out the same shoes and were very excited that both sizes were available. no white with blue stripes here… velcro all the way baby.


shoes are like recipes….they always get you somewhere?
