May 9/365 Soup

My family was solidly working class, from a rare time in history when that meant we had enough. Enough food, enough room, enough money to put a little aside if my Mother economized. Her beef stew was a staple, a vegetable-rich, brothy wonder, scented with bay, parsley, and thyme. Today it simmers on my stove.

  1. That sounds good. And yes, we were the working class equivalent as farmers. Luxuries (which today I call essentials) were possible, but economising was necessary.


  2. I’ll bet it’s delicious. My dad was the soup maker in the family. I’d be using more of his recipes today if I hadn’t developed the potato allergy.
