The scene of future soup making. Notice the David Lynch "Earnestine & Hazel's" print on the wall.
1 pound endive, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2-3 medium sized potatoes
1 chicken bouillon (language note: my language exchange friend always mixes the words "kitchen" and "chicken". It is most amusing. Please also note that earlier today I asked her if her cat liked to work in the car when I really meant to ask if her cat liked to travel in the car. Laughs all 'round.)
2 cloves, as in clove, the spice; that thing you put in oranges at Christmas time. They are called Clous de girofle in French or "Clove Nails". Side note: my language exchange friend says she often uses cloves in cooking. I have to further investigate because I have never used them in anything except hot wine/mulled wine.
2 cloves garlic, minced
Part II tomorrow: the making of the Endive Chorizo soup and the grade it gets from Chez Memphistanista.
