It is most definitely a soup day. Wet, chilly, dreary. Smells divine, however, I opened the front door and was hit in the face (nose) with the smell of spring, yummy. So I’m not making a heavy soup, but instead a recipe I think I made up last summer (or the summer before) and titled hearty summer soup, just the thing for a cold – but not wintry cold – day. Brothy, but with substance (hint of bacon, rice, chicken, ladled over chopped tomatoes and herbs). Very nice with a little pesto swirled into it. We’ll see what variation I feel like by tonight – because I won’t need to start it until then, it’s a quick one. (Recipe posted in comments, below.)
This afternoon Nathan and I went to see Nathan’s friend – and Suz’s daughter! – Vivian in Jesus Christ Super Star at Wooddale Lutheran in St. Louis Park. It was fantastic! I really enjoyed myself. Definitely community theater, but without question very well done. Vivian is in the chorus and did a terrific job. Go Vivian – woo hoo!
Came home and did some productive cleaning – readying our house for guests, you know. Nothing like a party to kick one’s ass into gear. My ass is officially kicked.
Then whipped up the soup, which we just ate. Hit the spot, it really did. It’s still early, only 6:30 (or 5:30 by my internal clock; I really hate daylight savings, argh), so plenty of time to keep on jammin’. Good sprung-forward evening to you.
