Soup; gnocchi

vegetable soup
Hill Court, Warranwood, VIC, July 8, 2015—
SOUP FOR LUNCH today, after a pleasant hour down in Warrandyte walking along the Yarra, then having a cappuccino and a very nice lemon meringue tart at a café I've come to like. I'm not sure how the soup was made: vegetable broth, probably, and lots of colors, textures, and flavors among the evenly diced cubes of carrot, celery, potato, and who knows what else — tomato and capsicum, as it's called here, surely involved as well.

Dinner at home too: on our part, delicious gnocchi with cheese melted atop in the broiler; on the part of the neighbors goat curry on rice. Green salad afterward.
Sauvignon blanc, Four Sisters (Central Victoria), 2014, grassy and assertie but nicely balanced; Cabernet sauvignon, Hazyblur, 2013, good varietal flavor
