On a Salty Monday

Another weekend has passed, thus I hope you had a safe weekend. Ballroom dance events filled two of our evenings and we ate well each evening. Therefore, I made one of my favorite soups Sunday evening: Bok Choy and Navy Bean Soup, a variation of a escarole and navy bean soup from a long-standing vegetarian restaurant in New Haven, Connecticut – Claire’s Corner Copia. (We have one of her cookbooks).

For your Monday Morning Entertainment, I have to give Mags credit for finding this gem. I can’t recall if she used this exact video, but artist does a variety of portraits using only a salt shaker and a piece of paper. If you want to see more, click here. Enjoy and have a good week.

    • Lynn,
      Low sodium diet reminds me that I seldom pick up a salt shaker and watch it when cooking with it. Meanwhile, if seen the lady with the sand table. Heck, just finished watching 5-6 others videos she did. Thanks for visiting and sharing!


    • Alex,
      Especially on Sunday in the winter, we enjoy soups that spend several hours on the stove … ah the smell! Going off the top of my head, ingredients included bok choy, navy or great northern beans, basil, garlic, potatoes, parsley, cabbage, fennel seeds, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Yes – tasty! Glad you enjoyed the salt art and thanks for stopping by!


      • I love all kinds of soup….my favorite being gumbo, which takes me about 5 hours to cook. When traveling I always try the local soups which at times can be quite adventurous, and usually delicious!


    • Nancy,
      Just another example of human creativity striking again. Actually many more videos of the artist doing others in salt – and fun to watch. I showed one to my wife to see how long it took her to guess who it was … and she did well. Thanks for visiting.


  1. And not a pinch thrown over the shoulder for luck? For shame!
