Went to Twenty Tap for a late lunch yesterday: their Pork Bahn Mi sandwich (a personal favorite) and a soup du jour: "Silken Turnip with Potato." Oh, my, was that soup ever good! I guess you've got to like turnips (which I do), which are a member of the madly versatile brassica family -- it had a lovely, complex flavor and was just as smooth as the name promised, enlivened by small chunks of potato. I recommend it,
Then for dinner last night, I made oxtail stew, and gave it a good long simmer. I went a bit light (see above) but Tam had two bowls -- and there was plenty left, now frozen and waiting to simmer again this evening, this time with crushed tomato and some more veggies. If you're passing up the sections of oxtail at the meat counter, and you like soups and stews, you're missing out.
