Today we swung by Haymarket, which is a huge, crowded, in-the-city produce market. I mistakenly thought it'd be 60 and sunny today. It was cloudy, 50 with intermittent rain and massive winds. Oh well. We got lots of fruit and vegetables (i.e. 8 limes/ dollar; 2 cartons of strawberries for $1.50 - awesome!). This is in addition to my food shopping from yesterday, so now I'm in cooking mode.
I got this huge beautiful spring of rosemary and am going to try making two different soups with it. I had already planned to make steak fajitas tonight so I picked up jalapenos (1.00/ pound and they're perfect!). Every time I cook with jalapenos I nearly end up in the hospital but I'm determined to be careful this time. So anyway, the whole point of this blog entry was to say that I looked up jalapeno soup to see if there was such a thing. Apparently there is, and I clicked on 'cream of jalapeno soup' - thinking it would be a good side for fajitas. Here it is:
OH MY GOD! Is that correct?? EIGHT cups of heavy cream? Reduced by a third? Ugh. That might send me to the hospital too, for bowel masochism. Needless to say, I'm not going to be making it.
