Step: Two

Wait Begets Want
A Seat soothing the need.
Ah, NPR my trusted friend. You have been - will always be - the teacher to my tracks.

  • Your favorite lengthy pasta, perhaps Spinach Fettuccine?
  • 1 Cup Roasted vegetables like Rutabega, Beets, Squash, or Kohlrabi
  • 1 breast of Chicken, dredged in Salt, Pepper, Garlic, and spice. Everything nice.
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable stock (or chicken)
  • 1 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 1 Cup Kale, chopped

A dash of Parmesan, a touch more salt. Canned tomatoes: petite diced? Filling and fresh, satisfying on a day in need of some direction.

Just right, still, for a hurried winter night.
