Weather and Food

Yesterday was cold and rainy. There was a chill in the air. I had to go to the store for some ingredients for a dish I'm making on Sunday. Walking through the parking lot, I got the idea that it's a perfect day for soup.

So, the trip to the store for 4 ingredients wound up costing much more. I was wandering back and forth between aisles. First, I had to see if they had chicken wings. Once I got the wings, I had to go back to produce for celery. Then, in the frozen section, I saw mixed vegetables, then back to the meat section for some beef for soup.

With all this back and forth, I met a woman doing the same thing. She'd pick up something, then realize she needed something back on the other side of the store where she started, back and forth, back and forth.

Anyway, when I got home, I froze the beef, but made a huge pot of chicken soup. And, it was delicious. Now, all I have to do is warm up some for the next four or five nights since there's no room in the freezer.

And, yes, I did remember the items I needed.

Tony Danza has a website where he posts videos of himself just talking, or doing something like cooking. He made some chicken soup and started by boiling one of those rotisserie chickens (he said the benefit was that it was already cooked and seasoned). When it fell apart he strained the broth, threw all his chopped vegetables and seasonings in there. While that was cooking he picked apart the chicken meat - tossed that back in the pot and there ya go. Soup. And no dealing with raw meat. I'm not fond of raw meat. :)
