Let's get cooking

Nothing makes you hungrier than watching episodes of Julia Child's The French Chef while you wait for the grocery order to be delivered.

Although Julia is making veal right now, and I've not been able to afford veal in years.

Has anyone?

The plan for lunch is home made minestrone of sorts. Cannelini beans, carrots, onion, celery. A whole tomato, blanched, peeled and chopped. Vegetable broth and a shot of tomato paste. Italian seasoning, salt & pepper. Chopped kale for just a minute at the end to wilt.

No pasta; the beans have enough starch in them. Besides, you have to have bread to sop up the very last of your bowl of soup.

Better start chopping.
