"She eats like a bird," an old boyfriend used to joke. "A huge, voracious, bird."
I have a lot of reading and writing to be doing these days (is EVERYTHING due March 1?). Yet all I can think about it...soup. Specifically, butternut squash soup--though Chinese Noodle soup from Teaism would also be acceptable.
Perhaps it's the grey weather in DC, or the many variations of stress, but I'm starving. And certain foods feel more "bookish" than others, pairing naturally with the turning of pages. Some favorites:
-Steel-cut oatmeal with almonds
-Hunan dumplings over a bed of arugula
-Butterhead lettuce, loosely chopped and drizzled in olive oil
-Chilled sweet potatoes in sesame-miso sauce (also from Teaism)
-Kale with stewed tomatoes and chickpeas
-Pork chili with red beans
What are your rainy-day-writing foods?
