I don’t know what the weather is like where you are,
but it’s A Cold, Wet and Dreary kind of day here.
Or maybe A Soup, Sandwich and Writing on Your Bread with Mustard kind of day?
Yeah, I like that kind of day much better.
So I guess that means we better make some soup. Soup that’s gonna start with cabbage and leeks.
Leeks that need their scary, hairy parts sliced off. Scary, hairy parts that need to find something fun to do.
Oh, I see. It’s a Give Your Coconut Oil a Leek ‘Fro kind of day.
Leeks sliced and sauteed in some coconut oil – red potatoes scrubbed,
diced and then added to the pan. Toss in a bunch of shredded cabbage, enough water to cover all the vegetables – then some salt, pepper, garlic powder –
bring to a boil, cover and then reduce to a simmer for about 40 minutes – or until your potatoes are soft.
And TA DA! It’s A Cabbage, Leek and Potato Soup kind of day!
Now about that sandwich…
Egg salad made with half an avocado (instead of mayo) and one hard boiled egg (plus a little salt and pepper). Mustard font (optional) on Ezekiel bread with some sliced pickle and a pile of crazy, spicy mixed greens from the CSA share –
Pile them on and then flatten like so:
Cause it’s a Squish Your Sandwich kind of day.
Slice and observe a totally normal height-ed looking avocado and egg salad sandwich:
Height-ed? I guess it’s a Make Up a New Word kind of day.
Now observe the blue skies that have come out in the time that it took me make soup, eat a sandwich and write a blog post.
Actually it’s a Make a Liar Out of Me kind of day, but whatever. Soup and sandwiches rule on just about any kind of day.
