- real borscht cooked by a real Russian
- some of Friday's fish
- some celery sauteed with the onion for nice crunch
- the last swallow of chilled zucchini soup
- a few garbanzo beans from the chickpea chipotle salad
- some shriveled tomato slices
- some near-dead mushrooms
- a few slices of nectarine pieces too woody to eat the other day and which I would have thrown away but the Russian, of a Greatest Generation age, insisted they go in the frig for later and am I ever glad she did (never had soup with fruit before? luscious!)
- some chipotle glaze from Saturday's grilled chicken
- a few bites of hearts of palm from Friday's salad
- a hard-boiled egg
- even some leftover avocado.
See what I mean about getting rid of leftovers? And because everything's already cooked, it makes up ever so quickly. And despite all the weird contributions -- it's good, really good, almost without fail.
Since there's really no recipe, per se, here it is, posted in the Kitchen Parade archive.
