I don’t know why, but the Food Glorious Food song from Oliver keeps going through my mind…

Actually, I’ve been singing Soup, Glorious Soup… I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that I made a big pot of soup that was really good…

We are on a serious soup kick, right now. What I especially like is that it’s dinner and an instant lunch the following day – or two. Totally unattended cooking and we get numerous meals from it. Not bad, at all…

Tonight’s soup consisted of:

  • 2 chicken thighs
  • 2 links chorizo
  • 1/2 cup beluga lentils
  • 1/2 cup heirloom rice blend
  • 1/2 cup wheat berries
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 1 cup ditalini pasta
  • celery
  • carrots
  • onion
  • hot sauce
  • bay leaves
  • oregano
  • cajun seasoning
  • soy sauce
  • worcestershire sauce
  • salt & pepper

Put it in a pot and make it hot.

It’s the simplest cooking. I keep collecting soup recipes and not making them – instead, making something completely unrelated. One of these days I may break down and actually follow one.

In the meantime, though, I’m getting some great ideas. And we’re eating well.
