And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for

From the Popster herself—

My Kickass, Want-It-Like-Crack NON-Diet Cabbage Soup

Have a BIG pot ready…

Chop and sauté in butter:
1 large sweet onion
4 celery stalks
1 red pepper

When these are soft and slightly golden, add:
½ to 1 lb baby carrots, halved
½ head cabbage, chopped
2 cloves fresh chopped garlic

Once slightly softened, add:
Medium to large can diced tomatoes (do not drain)
Box or large can of chicken stock
½ to ¾ of a large can/bottle V8 (46oz)
5 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into large cubes
2 lbs. smoked sausage, cut into coins
Lots of chopped fresh parsley
A little chopped fresh dark greens (arugula or spinach)
2 tbs hot sauce (to taste)
Salt and pepper

Simmer for a few hours, til potatoes are tender. Eat half the pot. Add more V8 to try to stretch it out so nobody realizes you ate half the pot by yourself.

It is the job of a good person to be honest. To be self-aware. To deliberately explore the fault lines of your character and try desperately to not inflict suffering in this strange, ghost-ridden world of worked and fabricated objects. Sometimes the jobs of writer and good person coincide. But more often they don’t. There are way more writers in the world than there are good people.
