And you thought you were done!
Describe the soup please? From whence the bread? What kind of butter?
The soup was started with stock which my wife made
from 2 smoked pork hocks (from the fresh meat dept, not home-made) and water. She then made a 'mirepoix' in the cuisinart with 2 carrots, 2 celery stalks, 1 leek and 1 yellow onion. She sauteed the mirepoix, added the pound of red lentils, combined it all and then added the stock. She added a bay leaf, kosher salt, fresh-ground black pepper and let it simmer for a few hours. Near the end, she threw in some flat-leaf parsley and what little meat she could harvest from the hocks.
The bread was again, Labriola, via Garden Fresh Market. The butter, President-Unsalted. I also use any one of these other brands, depending on what's available: Plugra, Cabot, Lurpak or my favorite, Jana Valley. Always unsalted.
Trust, for dessert, that you have raided a treat bag from last night. My kids know that little Baby Ruth bars belong to mommy, as do any bit o honey's.
No, as I mentioned upthread, my son traded away all his chocolate
before he even came home last night and that's the only candy I really enjoy (other than some in-season candy corn), so I didn't have Halloween candy. My wife, very wisely, took all our leftover (outbound) candy to a donation spot today, so that's no longer available. I do have some variant of a Rittersport bar on hand, so I may break that out a little later.
