Minestrone

May 2, 2007

When M and I first moved in together, I decided to make him some homely, lovingly crafted soup. The soup had a yummy ham hock in it, and some cannellini beans. I thought it quite hearty.

But when I presented it to M, he had a little taste, and said: “This isn’t as good as my mum’s minestrone.”

I have the flu at the moment, so M made me some minestrone. It wasn’t from his mum’s recipe, because he couldn’t find it.

I didn’t say, “this isn’t as good as my mum’s congee,” even though I really wanted to.
