rambling about movies and soup
Yesterday we had a belly full of popcorn (post viewing of Slumdog Millionaire, which is the type of movie where popcorn doesn’t work. I started watching it and the depiction of the slums of Mumbai and thought: I cannot pig out on a buttery popcorn sitting in my comfortable North American theatre). This movie reminded me of our own excesses, and was humbling in a big way.
But eventually, we still had to eat. So I went the modest route.
We had leftover roasted vegetables from our pre-Christmas dinner, so I did what Ina told me to do and made Roasted Vegetable Soup for supper last night. I changed it only slightly by throwing in some left-over cooked baby potatoes and a touch of half and half cream. I like thick, creamy soup. I put slivers of manchega cheese on top. It was yummy end to our last day of holidays.
This would be a good time to pause and mention that the Menu for Hope has been extended until December 31st. Last year they raised over $90,000 for the School Lunch Program in Lesotho. This year the tally is only $46,000. There are three more days to get raffle tickets for some amazing prizes!
