I woke up this morning feeling deeply unrested and under the weather. Scott brought me my computer so I could send my co-workers an email, declaring myself on a sick day. I went back to sleep and spent the rest of the day drifting from couch to various little tasks around the apartment.
For dinner, I made my July/August/September soup. It’s onions, garlic, eggplant, summer squash and tomato, cooked together with a parmesan cheese rind and a bit of water. When the veggies are soft, it gets worked through a food mill, so that all the skins and seeds get left behind. It tastes good and uses up an enormous volume of veg. This time of year, those are my favorite qualities in a soup.
