Still catching up – for day 19, let’s be thankful for soup. Homemade soup. Made from a homemade broth.
Like this lovely pot simmering on the stove about to become a vegetable broth.
And you don’t see the celery, bay leaves, garlic and onion lurking under the surface. You don’t smell the tasty goodness that is my house. I expect Hansel and Gretel to show up any second to start gnawing on the cornice boards. I’m sure they’ve given up sweets after that last house-eating expedition.
Why not just use a store-bought broth? First, because I can make my own, and every now and then I like to feel like a gr’up (bonus points if you can identify that reference by episode title and guest star without cheating).
Second, my broth will taste fantastic and I didn’t add any salt to it. Have you seen the sodium counts in packaged broth? Even the low-sodium ones have high numbers. My broth just has vegetables, a little olive oil and water.
All together now … YUM.
