The only cure (at least for me) is something cooked in my Le Creuset pot. That, and wearing socks. I just put some on for the first time in 3 months. I'd forgotten how comfortable they are.
Back to the pot. It's where comfort food lives.
|Look at all that gorgeous paprika veining.|
Really, it had to be soup, didn't it?
On week nights I wouldn't bother with accompaniments for the soup, but it's a Sunday (a long weekend Sunday at that) and I felt like dinner deserved something extra, so I whipped up some Potato-Goat Cheese Biscuits (tragically without green onion).
|Not terrible looking from the top...|
|But from the side... well... hockey puckish.|
One of the things about cleaning out your crisper for food is, you (inevitably) are missing a key ingredient.
Onion - half of one in a baggy
Carrots - gigantic bag from Costco
garlic - 2 sad cloves
stock - bouillon cubes
Portuguese sausage - slick with paprika laced fat!
Swiss chard - ½ bunch left
Lentils - both green and French (mm! Two textures!)
Celery - ...
Damn, no celery. We'll just replace that with... erm... mushrooms! Yes, that'll totally replicate the flavours.
Okay, it won't. But, it'll still work.
|Throw it all in a pot.|
|You gotta throw in sherry.|
And voila! Sunday dinner.
Good bye cold!
