A Cup of Soup Will Make it All Better

At least that’s what Mami always told me. It’s funny but back then I hated soup, not that I was a picky eater because I wasn’t but there were certain things I didn’t like. Broth was okay, but not small veggies or noodles, (so when I was sick my mom strained her soups for me) I was the same way with beans too, I ate the beans, potatos and sauce but picked out any visible trace of anything else my mom added to them.

As an adult now, my tastes have changed as do most people’s, I actually love thick soups now but still have an aversion to veggies, yet if they happen to be in my soups or beans or any sauce, I will eat them… and even enjoy the flavor! LOL!

Anyway, this morning I woke up to a pounding headache so I ordered crab & asparagus bisque for lunch today. I was surprised to find it was green, so apropo for St. Patty’s Day tomorrow. It cheered me up a bit, especially now that it’s like basically an ice storm out.

And, I have a million things to do…my eyebrows, my hair, a mani & pedi…the list just goes on and on!

Anyway, on books:

A new book is out by Columbian writer, Laura Restrepo.

Delirium: A Novel by Laura Restrepo and Natasha Wimmer, it’s about the life of a struggling literature professor who must investigate what has caused his wife to go insane.

Check it out!
