In August it will be so hot
I will become a cooking pot
Cooking soup of course-why not?
Cooking once, cooking twice
Cooking chicken soup with rice
August – ah, just one more month of hot weather – I hope! The humidity has
been unusually high here this year. I usually take a walk each morning
before the sun rises and it gets a wee bit too hot for me, but not lately.
I open up that front door and it feels like I’m heading into a sauna.
Then I nicely close the door and say “Not today Geraldine”, Geraldine being one of my mother’s flippant nicknames for me when she was about to say “No”.
To ‘celebrate’ the first of August, I believe I will make chicken soup tonight.
No rice – we like fine noodles. (Sorry Mr. Sendak!) By this time of year we’ve gone through the stockpile of frozen soups, so it’s time to start stockpiling again. I can’t think of a better way to start.
