the eric update - day 234: odin's epicurean adventures! bone soup.

after an edible epicurean adventure, we're returning to a recipe that's guaranteed to stimulate odin's sense of smell - bone soup. sure, most people might call it beef soup and the final product doesn't contain any bones ( one hopes ), but it is made with soup bones and i suspect odin will like my more evocative name over the boring one. so bone soup it is.

the broth for bone soup is prepared by adding a few pounds of meaty, fatty soup bones to a pot of water with an onion, whole celery stalks, bay leaves, black peppercorns and whatever other odds and ends you might have laying around. let simmer overnight and be prepared to have the house gradually become so filled with the smell of the ingredients mixing together that it's not unlikely that you'll awake in a pool of saliva. unless you're a vegitarian, in which case it might be a pool of something else entirely.

after simmering the broth for 12 or 16 or how ever many hours it might be until you can get around to finishing the job, you'll strain out most of the mushy remains of the bones, celery, onion and whatnot, keeping the fragrant bone soup broth.

then it's time to add whatever you want in the final concoction. today we added a pound or two of your favorite meat cut into appropriately sized pieces, peas, carrots, green beans and corn. after simmering for a few more hours and right before you want to eat, add a bag of your favorite brand of egg noodles.

whoila! bone soup!

Yum! Bone soup (despite the name) sounds great! Its snowing like crazy here in DC today, so anything soup-like sounds good. Just wanted to say that after being radio (well, computer) silent for the past couple of months, its great to check back in on little Odin and see that he's progressivley becoming not-so-little anymore! He is such a cutie - particularly the picture where he's pulling the heads off flowers. He looks so cute and fuzzy that even through the computer, I just want to give him a squeeze. Glad he got his postcard from "the ice" and glad all is well!

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
