On Monday, March 10th at 7pm, Ami Greko and I will be joining forces with Housing Works Bookstore Cafe for Stock Tips: A Party About a Zine About Soup.
There will be soup-related storytelling by Dave Bry, Bex Schwartz, Kevin Nguyen, and Jaime Green, drinking, mingling, and zines for sale to benefit Housing Works.
To join our Soup Swap, bring a recipe on an index card — as scribbled or designed as you like. Drop it in my favorite turquoise stock pot and pull out someone else’s. (It’s like a free raffle, or a potluck without the mess!)
Hope to see you there!
Thanks Abbeville Press! I cannot imaaaagine why you thought this might be up my alley…
An awesome soup zine for only $5? That’s amazing! We should all pre-order one immediately!
The time has finally come! The brilliant Ami Greko and I are joining forces to bring you the greatest lo-fi, black-and-white, photocopied, old school, totally punk zine ABOUT SOUP ever made.
We’re using Kickstarter to raise funds and collect pre-orders. Our zine will have contributions from a bunch of great writers as well as original illustrations and some badass cross-stitch action. Please check it out and share it with your friends. We’re so excited!
It’s going to snow all day, and that means time to make stock. This includes chicken as well as duck bones from Christmas dinner. Result: incredibly rich, fragrant broth after cooking all night. Another 8 hours and then soup time. My husband is going to make homemade noodles.
I have also never made homemade noodles. Y’all are impressive tonight!
If, for whatever reason, your household is having a mushy-foods-you-eat-with-a-spoon-and-no-teeth kind of week, you are probably sick to death of yogurt, apple sauce, pudding, and other sweet not-quite-meals.
I have found the solution and I am overjoyed. Here’s what you do:
- Buy pastina shaped like stars. Regular grocery store dry pasta brands make it.
- While it boils, beat an egg in a clean bowl and add to it some milk, some chunks of butter, salt, pepper, and as much grated parmigiano as you can and still have basically a liquid.
- Strain the pastina, dump it back in the pot, dump in your bowl of dairy magic, stir, eat, live happily ever after.
Making turkey stock today & then some kind of soup.
This weekend people started directly sending me pictures of their friends’ turkey stock. I’m enjoying this new phase in my personal brand.
Yesterday I met with Abbeville Press, a really cool independent publisher of visual books. Today their marketing director submitted amazing-looking soup! Doing it right, folks!
Diana’s pumpkin miso soup topped with gomashio and chives. Yummy!
