sunday is my favorite day of the week. there is something about this day…there’s equal potential for rest and play. it acts as the transitional handshake between a week’s end and another week’s beginning. most often, plans involve a walk without a time constraint, and cooking — food for the lil man and the big people. recently, while bananas and apples baked in the oven for kai’s week ahead, i made good use of a fresh pot of homemade stock lazing in the fridge. although my original plan involved more of a potato and leek soup, vidalia onions serenaded me towards a corn chowder. this sunday soup is of the kitchen sink variety (perfect to rid the cabinets and fridge of what remains of the previous week) and yields enough for both lunch and dinner noshes for days.
