Soup* -- on the stove! Pantry -- decluttered and organized! Kitchen, floors and counters -- clean!

Nice couple evenings' work. And ooh, I got a cool new mop yesterday, hence the clean floors. It's one of those Rubbermaid Reveal spray mops. I'd seen ads on TV but had to poke around some to find one locally (result: Home Depot). It's got a machine washable microfiber pad, and a refillable spray bottle (you fill with the cleaner of your choice). Works quite nicely; the pad is nice and thick, and managed to scrub up some of my usual long-term dried spills.

*The soup is this one from Epicurious: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/White-Bean-Butternut-Squash-Kale-and-Olive-Stew-1195 But holy cow, with adjustments, because that thing has some really whacked amounts/proportions. 3 large onions, 3 red peppers, 3 1/2 pounds butternut squash, 1 1/2 bunches of kale, 5 15 oz cans (yes 5 cans) white beans, all in only 1 1/2 cups broth.... So I went with one onion, one pepper, 1 1/4 pounds squash (it's what I had, 3 cute little guys from the CSA), one bunch of kale, 2 cans of beans, and 3 cups of broth. Also turns out I have no kalamata olives (a rare thing), but I do have a jar of cocktail olives, so I halved and de-pimentoed them. I have this visceral idea that the green olives will be totally different than the black, but that's really not true, and especially probably not in a soup.

We shall see.  It's certainly looking pretty as it's cooking.

And that's the domestic blah blah blah for the day.  (unless I come back with food pictures.  you never know.)

produce shift at the co-op this morning, and I scored a beautiful spaghetti squash (one of the new kids dropped it and it cracked open) and a bunch of chard just wilty enough to deem it unsaleable next to the nicer stuff. I picked up a couple of shallots and a handful of sundried tomatoes, and made a winter version of one of my favorite summer dishes. the recipe, for future reference, or if anyone is hungry and happens to have these ingredients around )

(FYI the "summer" version has sungold cherry tomatoes, scallions, and garlic.)
