Cooking soup in times of revolution

With a great deal of time on my hands, I’m making fresh vegetable soup today. This means that everything in the back of the refrigerator, that I had good intentions of cooking this week, goes into the pot.

It always seems to turn out good, if I remember to saute the onions, celery and celery tops in a little olive oil first, and then simmer the chopped vegetables in chicken stock, and add a bay leaf for flavor.

In my former life, before becoming a news reporter, I was a nutrition educator at Navajo Hopi WIC, then a food editor at Navajo Times,  when I was fresh out of graduate school.
