Like last night, it was unseasonably cold and rainy tonight – a good night for a simple but filling soup and for sitting on the couch. While Shane ran a few errands, I sauteed onions, garlic, and a leftover sausage in a bit of butter, then added chicken stock and simmered the whole thing with a couple of handfuls of white rice. Just before serving, I tossed in some fresh spinach and let it wilt while warming up leftover dinner rolls from this weekend.
I imagine we won’t have many more nights like this for a few months, so it was good to enjoy a last cold weather meal – and then some (kind of miraculous) PRETZEL M&Ms later during LOST. That’s right: pretzel. m&m’s. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me.
