Tater taco with an egg

Kindle just helpfully suggested a book entitled, “A writer’s guide to emotional trauma.”  It seems especially well-suited; a blunt execration of excessive and impenitent  failing.

Not failing — under duress and late hour: Diced potatoes — sautéed and tossed with chipotle, cumin, garlic powder, salt and oregano. Splendidly arrayed on corn tortillas with a little of Jen’s famous salsa, scrambled egg and cilantro. Cheese…

A fine, quick-ish feast after an afternoon carousing down in Hollywood. Off Hollywood.  Actually, by a street called Hollywood.

At a doctor’s office upon the street called Hollywood — addressing vocal emanations akin an angry seal, expelling from a child’s chest: His new thing — that face.

A summary of everything…

Curry lentil soup

A nice soup to stead against the first flakes of fall:  Lentils with veggies, in a tomato-ey broth with curry powder, cumin and coriander.

Sweeter veggies stand out nicely in this soup — butternut squash, sweet potato (for those enabled), parsnip and carrot.

Being too lazy to make the curry powder, garam masala was a nice substitute — though, it also calls for nutmeg, so it wasn’t too far off from that to begin with.

Found at Feasting at Home.
