Two Cents Tuesday Challenge: Lunch – Week 2

carrot soup

half way there

There is a huge snowbank in our front yard telling us that it is soup season again. Miss Z has gone to all the trouble of googling a healthy recipe for the 5 pounds of carrots in our fridge and so we set to work this afternoon. We are not really a fan of sweet soups but a large amount of ginger, garlic and onions seemed just the ticket to take the edge off what could otherwise be cloying and unpalatable. Some simple chopping, a little simmering in the dutch oven, a whir in the blender, a toasty baguette on the side and voila… tomorrow’s midday meal.

We much prefer when someone else does the cooking. No matter how tasty the creation we have concocted, it just doesn’t seem as appetizing to us as it does to everyone else. Perhaps because we have lingered too long over it, inhaled the aromas until we no longer have the need to actually eat it. No matter, there are plenty of hungry monsters in the house to devour the potful.

“What do you do for lunch?” – brownbag or five-star, sandwich or soup, miss it completely, go with a group, left-overs or made from scratch – We would love to see your vision…

    When my nephew was young and hadn’t yet mastered the “L” sound, he called it “Yunch”–which I sometimes find myself still saying… (he also would mimic our occasional “Lordy, Lordy”–“Yordy”).

    Nothing beats a good hearty stand-a-fork-up-in-it Stoup. The Lioness added chopped sweet potatoes to the last one and it was over the top in flavor and texture.

      That’s so funny – I had run out of russet potatoes for this recipe so called my neighbour for a “loaner”: all they had were sweet potatoes, so into the pot it went! Great minds think alike….
