Somehow, when they pop out of the oven all golden and steaming, they’re delicious. Absolutely delightfully wonderful. The leftovers even inspired multiple comments from others, with whom I did not share.
What exactly underlies that process (the cooking, not the bad poetry)?
The rest of a jar of salsa verde, half a turnip,
a few semi-withered cloves of garlic,
the remnants of a package of brown rice grits, and some pinto beans.
Saute some spices, the bedragled remnents of a couple of packages of frozen vegetables,
an onion or two,
a little vegetable broth;
stuff it into red peppers and crown it with cheese.
