Mid-August Lunch

It’s a mid-August lunch in hodge-podge mode.

What’s in your fridge?

Despite the weather.

We have a jam packed fridge with plastic containers of hmm-what-is-that?

Use what you got

Digging amongst the smoked fish, tofu, wilted parsley but still good kefir, I rallied enough ingredients to make my lunch: a hodge-podge with rice.  I dug up a serrano chile, some cremini, my kimchi,  red onion, and Korean zucchini (which I grew myself!)

Follow your palate

I recently admitted my Old Ladies into a nursing home so my mind went immediately to a film loosely based on old ladies.

Just add rice

According to the film, MID-AUGUST LUNCH, most of Italy takes mid-August off.  They are all at the beach and their cities are just a ghost town.   Families are gone and sometimes old people are left to fend for themselves.

These are the things I think about after visiting my Old Ladies at their new residence while making a mid-August lunch.
