Dear friends and fellow bloggers:
Good morning. On our family table (especially on the Italian branch) a dish of soup was always present, usually for consumption at the end of the meal for digestion purposes. When our grandmother or mother laid it on the table, we judiciously picked up the spoon and started eating it in silence. No complaints. No controversies. No fuzz.
We all grew up healthily and are now very grateful for the healthy eating habits that they instilled in all of us. We just prepared this peasant’s soup of casarecce pasta ( a smaller version of the fucilli) potatoes, veggies and corn. As a permissive allowance to our decadent spirits, we dropped a dollop of Parmesan cheese on top of it to jazz it all up.
A nutritious soup is the best culinary defense against any of the foreign invaders that threaten our bodies. As a physician we know that , besides the critically important drugs and procedures that Modern Medicine has to offer, a good diet is still of paramount importance to help the convalescence of sick patients and to ward off infections.
Stay distant. Stay safe. Stay beautiful.
What do you think? Please tell us.
Don’t leave me alone.
