Hitting the Spot
We had a little furnace situation over the holidays: it stopped working. Now we live in Los Angeles, so I'm not suggesting we were in a dire situation or anything, but it WAS in the 30's and 40's, and maybe my blood's gotten thinner, but it was c-o-l-d. We turned on the Aga oven, had a constant fire going and I drank copious cups of Earl Grey tea, but nothing seemed to do the trick until The Divine Italian whipped up lunch for me (pictured above). Nothing fancy, just some homemade tomato soup with grilled cheese soldiers, but it warmed me to the absolute core for the first time in three days. Molto grazie.
