Corn and Octopus Soup // Zuppa di mais e polpo

Friday, July 21, 2017

I think it was around January when I became obsessed with making a corn and octopus soup. I don't know what's the reason behind my obsession, but I do know that I really wanted to make it. And I did make it, but it was terrible.

Happy Bastille Day! Or as French would say, Bonne Fête Nationale! Or is it Joyeux 14 Juillet? I should probably know since I'm half French.

And it looked way prettier than mine.

This is that time of the year my grandfather brings me crates full of apricots. Now, I've never been an apricot person. I always liked peaches better. But nothing tastes as good as homegrown fruit and vegetables, so if I have to pick between store-bought peaches and homegrown apricots, I'll always pick the latter. Which is why I've been eating apricots like crazy lately. Mostly as a snack.
