Well, not really. That phrase popped into my head a few minutes ago ... AND,
GOOD AFTERNOON, KITTENS!!!
I thought I would take a few moments to answer a few questions that have been asked in the comments (or on Facebook? or Twitter? Somewhere, I know someone asked me some of these questions at some point). And, I can't remember the exact questions either, but they had to do with one of two things: (1) the new rug and/or (B) the soup I made.
So, first, the new rug. It is fabulous. I bought it online from Hautelook (which is one of those daily bargain feeder things, like Gilt or Groupon or something). I do not know the maker/brand because I threw out the label. Sorry. But, the rug was totes cheap, only $240 (or so), marked down from over a $1000. Yayz.
As for the soup, it was also fabulous. I did not follow a recipe (who follows recipes for soup? I mean, really. Soup is so easy). I used, 1 butternut squash (peeled and cubed), 2 small apples (diced, not peeled), half an onion, a can of diced tomatoes, maybe 2 cups of homemade veggie broth, curry powder, garam masala, and salt.
First, I browned the onion, butternut squash, and apple in a pan with some oil and a very liberal shake of the curry powder.
As this was happening, I melted the frozen broth in a large stockpot and brought it to a boil.
Once the onion, et al. was nice and soft and browned and a little crispy, I dumped it into the simmering broth.
Then, I swished a little white wine around in the pan to scrape up all the tasty little browned bits stuck to it and dumped all that into the pot too.
Next, I added the can of diced tomatoes.
I let all that boil for awhile. Tasted it. Added the salt and garam masala.
Boiled some more.
Finally when it all seemed well boiled, I took out my immersion blender (a.k.a. the Fabulous Zhoozher) and zhoozhed the soup until it was smooth.
And it was delicious.
I guess that's about it. I ran 5 miles yesterday after work. Today is Laundry Day! Joy.
Have a great day!
