Yesterday I was describing a dinner that I made to a friend of mine. It was a simple dinner, nothing fancy, but it's not something I make on a regular or even an infrequent basis. This meal was something I haven't made in a few years, but with the cold weather it fit the bill perfectly. It certainly isn't something totally unheard of, and for a while in the early 90's it was all the rage where I worked in Northern New Jersey. Versions of it had been hitting the blogs recently and they made me want to rediscover this old classic.
I told her what I made and her response was. "You always make such weird food." Weird food? C'mon. I do like to mix it up, but I don't think my food is weird.
So what was it? What was this weird concoction? Potato-Cheese soup accompanied by sour dough bread. This was a satisfying meal but so unremarkable that I didn't even consider taking pictures. To me, this dish is just plain ol' home cooking.
So you tell me - Do I always make such weird food?
