Avgolemono; collards – 15 May 2019

The return of winter weather – another “atmospheric river” is upon us, and it’s grey and rainy – so I said maybe we should have soup. I also wanted to make my boudin blanc pasta, and suggested I could get … Continue reading

Defrosted Seven Bean Soup with sour cream – 7 April 2019

Leftover Common Grill Black Bean Soup – 25 March 2019

D still under the weather. We had planned to have the leftover soup for lunch, but he suggested saving it for dinner, by which time the rains would have returned, and also, he would feel more like getting up and … Continue reading

Common Grill Black Bean Soup; edible-pod peas – 22 March 2019

I wrote up the recipe for this soup here. This time, I made a half-recipe, which is enough for two dinner servings and looks like one lunch, or one more dinner. I used 3 strips of thick-cut Fra’Mani applewood-smoked bacon, … Continue reading

Kabocha and potato soup – 11 February 2019

Seven Bean Soup for a rainy, windy night – 16 January 2019

D suggested this a day or two in advance, after seeing the NOAA forecast for our area, which included a 100% chance of rain, and breezy weather with strong gusts of wind. Time for the official start of winter, I … Continue reading

Pepperoni, kale, and potato soup – 8 January 2019

A most excellent random soup; leftover Pintxos salad – 3 December 2018

Another freezer mystery turns out to be really great! I found one of the small square glass snap-seals in the freezer with something that looked a bit like tomato sauce in it, a cup or less, most likely, and moved … Continue reading

Punted Chili; zucchini with onions – 19 November 2018

Fresh tomato soup; Boucherin and crackers – 16 November 2018

Gazpacho; Kanaal cheese – 13 October 2018

I said, “It’s been so cold this tomato season we haven’t even made gazpacho!” D says, “Ok, let’s make it tonight.” We were trying to figure out how to use the Dirty Girl Produce dry-farmed early girls we still have … Continue reading

Hyacinth bean, potato, and kale soup; grilled, prosciutto-wrapped radicchio – 7 October 2018

We bought these cool-looking beans at the Saturday market 8 days ago, and have just gotten around to cooking them (they were in fine shape). They are called “Hyacinth beans” and are native to Africa, according to Wikipedia; but these … Continue reading

Sorrel soup with leeks and potatoes – 1 October (OMG) 2018

I had been noticing the unused sorrel and unused chives happily growing in the garden (the chives happier than the sorrel, actually – one plant looks a little fall-ish). Remembering that while at the Bowl, I bought a couple of … Continue reading

Reheated Common Grill black bean soup with salsa, avocados, and sour cream; Brussels sprouts – 2 February 2018

Well, if the groundhog had been out here, he sure would have seen his shadow. Taken off his fur coat to boot. A lovely spring day, sunny and warm. Probably in the low 70s (though the interior of the house … Continue reading

Common Grill Black Bean Soup; Brussels sprouts – 30 January 2018

To use up what was about 6.4 oz but should (per the recipe) have been 8 oz of remaining Niman Ranch ham – from a 3/4″ or so thick round slice that was a pound – well, I said I’ll … Continue reading

Posole Rojo – 12 January 2018

What do I call this – takeout? Dinner with friends? E texted us last night asking if we’d like some of the posole she had made – evidently a large recipe – and we of course said an enthusiastic yes! … Continue reading

Bean/veggie/penne soup from Christmas capon stock – 2 January 2018

Sorrel, leek, and potato soup – 16 November 2017

Wow, serious rain! D recorded something like 1.8 inches, close to 10% of our usual annual total, over the 24 hours ending at 8am. So, a cold and wet and grey day, which is perfect for soup. I noted upon … Continue reading

Fresh tomato soup; cole slaw; chicken sandwich – 22 October 2017

We’re still in the process of making sure we make all our tomato recipes before the season ends. I realized 1) we hadn’t made “M’s” tomato soup yet, and also the Dirty Girl Produce tomatoes were threatening to go soft … Continue reading

Another chance for gazpacho; bread & cheese; dinner on the deck – 26 September 2017

It was scheduled to be over 80, even here in the coldest part of the city, so I thought we should take the 3 cups of tomato juice we froze last time and make a second gazpacho from it. Notably, … Continue reading

Scotch Broth; semonlina-with-bay patties; chard stems – 16 May 2017

I used my lamb broth from last week’s leftover bits to make Scotch Broth. I defrosted some bits of lamb from 2012(!!) that were marked as being small chunks – they were too small for a good kebab, indeed, but … Continue reading

Common Grill Black Bean Soup; Brussels sprouts – 12 April 2017

Common Grill Black Bean Soup; kale – 7 April 2017

Rainy and cold, so I suggested we make a soup. We had planned on nachos soon, so buying salsa and sour cream worked for both that and this soup. I made the soup, changing only a couple things from the … Continue reading
