Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

2020 soup musings


I made soup yesterday, roasted tomato and basil.

The beginnings.

As I was opening a can of tomato paste I noticed the expiration date was in 2020.

March 2020 will probably be pretty interesting.

Given the political climate at the moment, I wonder what the world will look like in 2020.

Somehow I can’t quite imagine it.

The onions, pepper and potato work up a sweat while the tomatoes roast.

So I sighed and finished the soup.

Torn basil finishes it up.

It turned out really good.

I hope 2020 turns out really good too.

Yum. Soup and cheesy garlic bread.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. I hope 2018 turns out good. I hope 2020 turns out good. But with each passing day, I lose a little more hope. Our govrnment needs a complete fall cleaning – dump out, weed out, throw out. Start over. With a clean slate.

  2. What is with soup lately?? Lol

    I’m making cabbage-potato soup, my friend is busy making split pea— Just that time of year, I guess.

    Hi Dawn. Your soup looks quite good.


  3. I just want to win the lotto and go buy my own desert island…escape from the world


  4. Looks yummy! Like you, I wonder what the future holds. Things look pretty grim right now; let’s pray reason and kindness prevail!


  5. That looks delicious. I hope all the years, starting with this one, turn out good. 🙂


  6. It is the season for soups. The day temps are now in the 40-50’s. The mornings are in the 20-to-low-30’s. Soup-making has been my strategy for mowing through garden produce brought in ahead of last week’s killing frost. All told, we’ve frozen gallons (and gallons) of both chili and curried squash. Soup-making is also a good way to achieve mental balance in a crazy political and news climate. I plan to vote! They say snow is not too far off on the calendar…I’ll snowshoe to the voting booth if I must, but I will vote!

  7. I’m afraid your cooking is far superior to today’s politics. My money is on your culinary skills for 2020.
