Last night for supper my roommate and I realized that many grocery stores were closed because of Good Friday. Pooling together our pantry hoards, we put together this meal. It’s a reminder too that we often jump to thinking “there’s nothing to eat…” when there is really abundance.
Butternut Squash Soup (Baxter’s canned)
Grilled cheese sandwiches – cheddar cheese and grilled onion on whole wheat bread.
Salad – baby spinach greens with thinly sliced onion, mushroom, feta, and a fantastic caesar dressing (not the creamy kind, but a light parmesan caesar vinaegrette by a brand called Renée’s). We both really enjoyed this salad and would love to make it again!
Finally, a glass of Shiraz/Cabernet, from an Australian winemaker aptly called “Promised Land”. There is a seahorse on the bottle! If I didn’t mention this earlier, we collect wine bottles with animals on the labels. I should take a picture of our collection sometime…
It was a simple meal, one that I didn’t think we possessed, and so I felt very blessed. Very fitting for a meal to celebrate Good Friday when we first received a gift we don’t deserve.
