There's a Nip in the Air

Outside it's cool - 53°F (11.5°C) - and raining lightly: not good weather for the Takoma Park Street Festival, but it's happening anyway. I can hear the music from the band playing on the Columbia Avenue Stage, which is set up right at the end of our street.

I made a big pot of oatmeal this morning, and in response to my question about whether he'd also like some eggs, the Mr. requested French toast, because I'd bought a loaf of challah when I was running errands with the Young Lady yesterday. We have real maple syrup for it, and we had fruit juice (mine orange, his grapefruit) and tea: a very satisfactory breakfast for an autumn day.

Oh hell, I can talk food! I just wasn't aware that it would be so much in demand!

I made some dynamite veg-beef soup last night. Started off by sauteeing and onion and some garlic (crushed) in olive oil, then added broth stuffs (a mixed bag: the last of a big box of chicken broth and the tailings of one of mushroom broth, a small box of chicken broth - different brand from the big one, and some "Better than Bouillon" concentrate and water), some dried shiitake mushrooms torn into small bits, and a half cup of lentils, and let that cook for about 25 minutes while I cut up a bunch of random veggies I happened to have in the fridge, and added them in this order: carrots, cabbage, green beans, baby kale, and zucchini, then a box of crushed Italian tomatoes and a half cup of small tube pasta (tubetti). When the lentils were tender, I added frozen peas, chopped fresh basil, a bit of finely minced leftover skirt steak, and salt and pepper, and let it all simmer for about 10 more minutes.

OM NOM NOM.
