Everyone I know is a bit out of sorts today, and this morning's snowfall did not help. We are tired of cold and gray and wind and wet. It is hard to believe that a year ago we were just a few days away from 62-degree weather.
Knowing I had another serving of last night's soup to eat cheered me today. But tonight, I wanted more, a sandwich perhaps.
What to eat? Leaving my husband on his own, I toasted buttered whole-grain bread while I roasted a small red pepper (my love for roasted red peppers has been well documented here). When the toast was done, I smeared it with Boursin cheese and topped it with my deep red peppers. Awfully tasty for a thrown-together meal. I garnished it with some sweet pickles made by my friend Denise.
My soup was even better the second time around, but I think it needs more salt.
Tell me, if you are coping with a protracted and miserable winter, what are you doing to cheer yourself? I have been keeping potted tulips on my desk at work and wearing summery colognes.
