D wanted to cook tonight because he really wanted to make sorrel soup.
The soup is from Potager by Georgeanne Brennan, one of our absolutely best cookbooks. It has leeks and potatoes, cooked in oil and I think butter, and then in a chicken stock (D used Kirkland boxed stock) with cut strips of sorrel leaves stirred in at the end, and also served over the top along with chopped chives. D added some chive blossoms, a lovely touch.

D chose a Bruno Porro Dolcetto di Dogliani from the basement, which had some nice flavors, but was too old and had faded a bunch. We are betting this was from Trader Joe’s, but even if we’re right… who knows when? D disliked his and didn’t finish it (redirected for cooking), but I found enough to like that I drank mine. He was very disappointed.
