Damn I'm a Good Cook!
First, maybe a half gallon of water in my giant steel soup kettle.....chopped yellow onions, sea salt, a bit of potassium chloride and diatomaceous earth, garlic powder and red pepper flakes, then from the freezer half a rooster breast and a small bit of frozen ham I noticed, all simmered until I had a nice broth. Next went in wheat berries, 4 big collard leaves chopped with my kitchen scissors, maybe a dozen Lesbos basil leaves and a pinch of fresh rosemary simmered about 45 minutes. Rare night that the TV is on.....watching 'Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern' while eating this lovely soup as Venus, Jupiter and the Moon create another new lovely triangulation in the sky. Life is good! Thank you Universe.
