Yup. Grey, dark and stormy. It was one of those days where you just want to curl up on the couch and watch a bunch of terrible movies. Sadly for me, I don’t own a couch. It just wouldn’t fit in my palatial, 325 square foot apartment. It was either a bed or a couch and I decided I could probably use a place to sleep.
The second problem I faced was the work I had to do in the lab. Why did I set up chemistry that needed attention Sunday morning? Because I’m a crazy person, apparently. So, I had to trek into work and pay some attention to my chemicals. Now, I only live a mile away from work and I had driven into work the past two days. These two factors combined led me to decide that it was a good day to walk to work. Oh boy, what a mistake.
The walk into work wasn’t particularly bad, just windy. It got to be a problem when I wanted to leave work. Bands of rain came and went over the hours I was in the lab. From calm to downpour and back again in just minutes. How was I supposed to get home? Like I said, bad day to walk to work. Finally, during a break in the weather, I decided to head out.
Chorizo and Vegetable soupOlive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 bay leaf
1 tsp dried parsley
¼ tsp dried oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup corn kernels
Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add chorizo and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove chorizo from pot to a plate with paper towels. Allow the towels to soak up some of the grease.
Remove bay leaf and add corn. Simmer until corn is heated through. Dish out a big bowl and serve with some crusty bread!
