turnip stem potato cod soup . . .
Let's say you've bought a mess of turnip greens to cook and freeze for your fairly normal diet of greens, beans and fish . . . sometimes greens, rice with beans and fish evening meals . . . and you realize that you have a couple of potatoes starting to go to seed (but still firm enough) in the pantry, one red and white . . . what to do? Easy, delicious answer: turnip stem potato and cod soup (assuming you have some frozen cod waiting for a menu to flower around it) . . . a bit of veggie stock, kosher salt, black pepper, garlic, and cayenne pepper and you have a swell mid-day Saturday meal . . . some whole grain crackers and butter is even more swell . . . no leftovers . . .
