Happy Tuesday, internet addicts! Another beautiful day on the internet, on planet Earth. Just kidding. It’s a dreary day here in Brooklyn, and everything kinda feels shitty. Maybe it’s the descent into the gross part of fall weather (Scorpio season, anyone?), or maybe it’s the seasonal depression setting in. Whatever the case, I’m not feelin’ it. This weather just makes me want to curl up with some nice soup, cuddle with my cat, and make hot toddies. Speaking of soup, I made a great one last night. Sautee some alliums (onion and garlic for me), add 2 bunches of asparagus chopped into 1 inch pieces, and one diced potato. Cover with a broth of choice, and cook for 15 minutes. Add a couple of large fistfuls of baby spinach and cook for 1 minute. Then blend the soup in a regular or immersion blender until smooth. You can add some half and a half (after tempering it) if desired, but the potato makes the soup creamy without dairy. A fun trick!
Anyway. I digress.
Things aren’t feeling amazing right now, but we’ve got a few tools on our hands. Soup, obviously, and the internet. Our specific tool of choice, when it comes to internet mood-boosters is definitely Twitter. And while it is certainly the proverbial mother of much humor, it’s also got its fair share of trash. So we’re here to bring you the cream of the crop, the latest and greatest. Hopefully, they make your dreary fall (or spring?) days feel a little brighter.
