Today I awoke to another cold, rainy, dreary day…the fourth on in a row, I do believe.
Anyway, I was glad that I had banked my coals last night so that I wouldn’t have to start a fire from scratch this morning. It wasn’t long before the fire was roaring again. About mid morning, I noticed that the fireplace was full of really nice coals. Not wanting them to waste, I decided to cook lunch over them.
I hung an iron pot to which I had added some olive oi,l that I had infused with herbs and garlic, and a couple of chicken breasts.
I chopped some onion, celery and peppers
and stirred that in. I had gotten some little carrots from the market at Inglewood,
so I sliced them
and slid them in as well. After adding some broth and seasoning, I left it alone
to cook for a while. Then, I threw in some noodles and called it soup.
While the noodles were getting tender I relaxed in front of the fire.
I gotta tell ya, it tasted pretty good. And that was my morning.
