Green Soup from Love Soup by Anna Thomas

As I said, Chris was in Boston for work this week, so I had a few days to myself.  Currently, I think he travels the perfect amount.  I love having a night or two to myself.  I think that’s healthy.  I also love trying to think of things to surprise him with when he gets back.  Sometimes it’s a clean closet, other times it’s a new shirt, and sometimes it’s just a meal I know he loves.  But there are also times when I get busy or lazy and the best I can manage is a sink with no dishes in it.

Either way, after a couple of nights of waking up to every bump in the night and listening out for nonexistent intruders, I’m ready for him to come home.  The house gets a little quiet, even with Meeks and NPR podcasts to help.

Anyway… this picture was my Monday night in a nutshell.  After I’d stood in my clean kitchen slicing kale, chard, onions and cilantro while sipping wine and listening to The Splendid Table.  The green soup comes from Love Soup by Anna Thomas.  It was good.  But not as good as one I made up just over a year ago.
