So, as tasty as that Thai rabbit- coconut soup was two days ago, it didn’t seem appetizing today. I pureed about four cups in the blender to disguise the evil mushrooms from the daughter.
I cooked cubed sweet potatoes in olive oil, then chopped up leftover cooked rabbit and added that, the pureed soup mixture, a couple handfuls of frozen peas, about a cup of frozen shredded zucchini (again, a disguise), some ‘peeled onion’, and a pinch of thyme… Salt… Still needed something.. yet tasted familiar..
It tasted NOTHING like the soup that I’d pureed, more like the filling to a south American tamale I had eaten several years ago at a barber shop I worked at. Barbers love treats, that customer was an awesome cook. The tamale’s filling was made out of a chicken stew with peas and a green olive in the middle as the “toy surprise inside” for the palate…
Alas, nothing but boring black olives in this house at the moment. I rummaged in the fridge and found a jar of sevillano olive juice I’d been saving to try pickling eggs with. Perfect!
I’m looking forward to dinner!
[Update: was good, very filling, probably had too much fat. Really needed those olives!]
