I remembered to soak some mung beans when I came back from our walk, so they cooked pretty fast when it was time to make dinner. Into a pan of our divine mirepoix they went, with water and pepper, and simmered while I took the chicken mushrooms from calzone night and added them plus some maitake (confusingly referred to as hen-of-the-woods) to smoked chicken broth I made with all the carcasses from the party. Bean thread noodles completed the soup, and I tossed the beans with salt, oil, and cider vinegar. To finish, another perfect salad. Pretty clean, varied, and a good finish to the day; we had a major English brunch this morning with bacon, eggs, hash browns, and tomatoes.
