One Woman's Journey through Her Cookbooks
Hubby was working from home and I had quite a few jobs to do myself meaning that I had very little time to pull lunch together. So on the menu for lunch today was soup and a sandwich with the added treat of watching the last episode of Homeland Season 2 while the kids were at school. We’d taped Season 1 and 2 and grabbed moments over the past week or so to have a “marathon” viewing session. I don’t know how anyone can wait from one week to the next for the following episode. Drama, drama, DRAMA! But somehow the finale didn’t quite do it for me as the storyline got more and more bizarre – outrageously unbelievable! But lunch was lovely!
For soup, I raided the vegetable box and came up with a simple Farmer’s soup based on the one by Stéphane Reynaud in his cookbook, Ripalles. It’s a clean, light soup that’s fresh on the palette. Serve it with a chunky slice of sourdough to mop up the broth.
