In the way of things sometimes consistent, this should be Free Range Friday. I would post photos of the first soup I've made using calabaza, or local pumpkin. It's definitely been soup weather around here!
Discarding recipes that said to roast it first, I just cut up that slice into chunks, added a cup of chicken broth (finally, a soup for one!), added lots of onion and garlic, salt and pepper and a dash of allspice. Next it was boiled down (that took only about 15 minutes to tenderize the calabaza; I was surprised) and pureed in a couple of batches in my little baby blender. It was incredibly pretty and really delicious. I wondered if not using milk or cream would lessen the taste but it didn't; it was rich and thick and I'm going to make it again very soon. Total cost was probably 2 bucks, a fabulous deal. But...no photos. Next time!
But! since the internet is actually allowing me to connect somewhat today, I'm going to try to do a bit of a round-up of photos from the very, very windy last days around here. Because I can. I think. We'll see.
|Last Friday night at Dinghy Dock.|
|A shiny afternoon at Punta Soldado|
|There are a couple of little ponds out that way. These birds were enjoying it.|
|Some gorgeous clouds during sunset overlooking Vieques|
|Mirror moment. That didn't last long.|
From the dock where he had launched, good old rock and roll was being played loudly. Luckily for me, it was music I liked. While I was shooting photos of him, Brown Eyed Girl played. I thanked my little and big Universe for giving me a sweet gift for my eyes, ears and soul.
|The wind has been crazy, the visuals sublime.|
|Of course I took a lot of moon photos last night as it played in the clouds.|
Have a frankly fortuitous Friday the 13th! Do something flighty.
