a soupcon of fall

it's a cool,cloudy and drizzly day. rushed home from the shop to make soup. accidentally took a nap,read the new york times home section,walked the dog, sauteed some bacon for the soup. fed the dog(who thought the bacon was for her). chopped onions and shallots, carrots and garlic, sauteed all, added crushed red peppers, salt and freshly ground pepper. found a chicken stock i had made from a chicken back, poured that in, added about 1/2 a pound of baby gold potatoes diced, brought to boil, turned to simmer. neighbors came by, smelled bacon, asked what was for dinner. one,opened the refrigerator and peered inside, as if he was at home. i love this 'hood. cut parsley from garden, sprinkled in soup added a dash of milk, topped with bits of bacon. ate.
