Each month is gay,
each season nice,
– Maurice Sendak
Actually it was turkey, but Maurice didn’t write about turkey soup with rice in A Book of Months.
Once my chunky turkey stock was bubbling on the stove I discovered I had already used all the carrots and celery over the weekend, and so I added a chopped sweet potato instead, then threw in a bag of cooked brown and wild rice from the freezer. (Cooking noodles or rice separately keeps all the starch from coming out into your soup.) It was good, but left sufficient room for chocolate fondue at The Mercury later on at my Artemis Foundation meeting.
