march snows

March went out like a lion this year, dumping 18 inches in less than a day on Boulder. My trailwork is going to have to wait until the ground rethaws but hopefully the snow will be clear by the end of this week. ~t

Soup: serves two or three (or one hungry dude)

stock --
microbrew pilsner (1 oskar blues)
water (1 glass)
half dozen oven dried tomatoes (prepped with oil $ salt)
olive oil (dash)
sesame oil (quick dash)
sea salt (pinch)
soy (dash)
rice vinegar (dash)
Siracha sauce (good squeeze)
Grizzle (from the brisket)

veggies --
thinly sliced cabbage (double handful)
carrot, diagonal slice (one)
celery, " (")
basil, sliced (sweet or cinnamon, good fistful)

protein --
Charcoal grilled Beef Brisket, sliced in very thin strips (about 8oz, almost shaved)

heat soup pot, combine stock in no order, ditto with veggies and followed by protein. cover, simmer 30 minutes or until carrots are to desired texture, remove grizzle hunk.

Due to the semi-asian nature of the seasoning, I ate it with choptsicks and a standard chinese soup spoon. delish.
