Wednesday's Cornerview: 'Anything Goes'

I had wanted to do a six year's ago post (in response to Guusje's question) but low and behold I have no idea where that cd full of photos is!!??  Somehow in all our moves it seems as if most of the photographic proof of life before kids has vanished!?  

With time running up and the pasta water nearly boiling (the music playing)  I will have to settle with the only thing I could find the photo of a nice soup I made yesterday care of my all time favourite cookbook -

3 Tbs Olive oil
1/2 Large Spanish Onion(diced)
2 garlic cloves
1 rounded teaspoon black cumin seeds (I used normal green cumin seeds)
750 grams beetroot(peeled and diced)
1 large potato(finely diced)
1.25 liters cold water
3 Tbs good quality red wine vinegar
1 small bunch flat leafed parlsey
100 grams plain yogurt, (thinned with a little milk and seasoned with a clove garlic crushed salt and pepper).
Saute in olive oil the onion and pinch of salt, cook for 10 min, add teh garlic and cumin and cook for 2 min. Add the beetroot, potato. Add the water and let it all simmer for 15 min. Blend then place back in pot, add vinegar half the parsley and salt and pepper to taste, garnish with the yogurt and parsley. Serve warm/hot.

 The Moro
(Beetroot and cumin soup)
and it was tasty!
and with that
the recent favourite song
(for those times in the car) by Micah P. Hinson
(for some reason we tend to bend to the melancholy this time of year )
....so this is to those dear people I miss when I think back to our life in Brighton
(yes even now I long to return) don't you forget.... 
ok one more - (from dear old Seattle my home before married life)

  2. oh, you beauty!

    I'll better buy this book, Moro.

    Gosh, wouldn't that be great???

  3. i've seen that book in the store. you got me interested now!

  4. A beautiful way to illustrate anything goes ;)
    Thanks for the book too! Nice idea (for a present for Xmas?)

  5. I've read a lot about that book... perhaps time to look for it? that photo is beautiful... and the post too.
