rambling about movies and soup

December 29, 2008


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!

    Bet the soup was great–not unlike the veggies were on the 23rd! This coming from the female of this household–we all know about males and squash!
