Letter: Self-rescue and delicious soup

Published: 2/26/2021 12:02:05 AM

Risk-assessment pro and outdoors aficionado Ty Gagne now has two excellent books out, Where You’ll Find Me and, at 2020s end, The Last Traverse. I bought these in quantity at Gibson’s Bookstore, using them as gifts. In each teaching book, he writes about self-rescue. I like the idea.

Okay, tonight I am applying self-rescue to eating good food. I’m making Henry Homeyer’s kale, veggies, and black bean soup from the recipe recently in your pages (Monitor Close-Up, Feb. 20). I had a bag of frozen cherry tomatoes from my garden to use, too. As I make the soup for supper, I turn 76. I want to thank Ty for writing his books that made me happy to give them as presents and probably will save me from mistakes during adventures. And I thank Henry for the delicious recipe (I used potatoes in place of winter squash). And thank you to this paper for giving us Henry Homeyer as a gardener and sharer of recipes. On NPR I just listened to President Biden’s voice solemnly laying out that the half-million COVID-19 deaths are more than Americans lost in World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War. I need Henry’s nutritious soup. And self-rescue at this time must take form as rededication by me and all to wash hands, wear masks, social distance, and get vaccinated.
