June Gloom? Yeah, we got it bad. Showers, gray skies, fricky wind.
The mood suffers.
There is a cure for that, and it comes in many flavors. Soup.
This is sunny avgolemono soup. I saw no need to art up the photo with utensils, herbs, crockery. What you want is exactly what you're looking at: A bowl of glaringly yellow soup, tingling with lemon and substantial with rice. Eggs, chicken stock... that's food. After we finished our lunch, we couldn't get up from the table. The soup was so nourishing (and there was a little Greek salad, too).
In the old days (we're talking Pleistocene, okay?), I made up my very own recipe for avgolemono soup. How hard could it be? Whatever I came up with tasted good and was definitely satisfying.
I haven't cooked this soup in years. We have lemons to use, and it just seemed so right today. To make sure, I looked up recipes.
Turns out I was making it properly all along.
