Weather-Induced Culinary Self-Indulgence


It's miserably cold here in the Deep South right now; in response, I'm making one of the mostest perfect cold-weather foods ever devised by man or woman, Rachael Ray's Hungarian Hot Sausage and Lentil Soup, although I substitute Eckrich's Smoked Sausage for her Italian sausage (which I don't care for), and I omit the kale she adds at the last minute (although I have used spinach a couple of times quite successfully).  It's especially good with great chunks of paesano bread and butter, although I don't have that right now so am going to substitute rosemary-and-sea-salt bread in its place.  

If you don't hear from me again, it will be because I have burst.

Yum...sounds a lot better than the lintel dish I made today which didn't end up tasting that great.

Oh, and I'm using one of your prompts tomorrow--I'm linking to your profile so people can check out either or both of your blogs. Have a great night and thank you for being such an enthusiastic participant of TOMW!

Thanks, C. Beth; I appreciate your linking.

My soup turned out all right but not as good as in the past; I'm not sure exactly what's off with it yet.

And thanks for creating TOMW -- I'm really finding it useful for getting me thinking about putting things into words, something I'm often just too lazy to do.

Hedgie,

I've decided that your blog is getting decidedly more interesting since you met me.

Poetry is great but it's more fun learning about YOU and what you are cooking.

Thanks for the stink (corpse) flower. You really know how to impress a girl.

Oh and, in case you don't return to my blog to see my response to your remark, your comment was the most hilarious side-splittingly funny and then falling down as if drunk comment ever.

Just wait'll you see the unnecessary turkey parts bouquet; it's a real stunner.

"in case you don't return to my blog"

Already been there and thrown down the gauntlet. Heh.

And thanks for the compliment.

"falling down as if drunk"

Okay, I'll try to ease up so as not to cause any injuries.
