Yesterday was freezing. Bitter cold. I left an early morning meeting in midtown and stumbled into Sahki and his Soup on Wheels Stand at 51st & 7th. Tomato Bisque, Chicken Gumbo, Split Pea, Pasta Fagoili, Chilli con Carne all homemade and piping hot in industrial kettles.
What does this have to do with Home Organization? Everything. I ran out of the house at 7 a.m. with $5 in my pocket, no time for breakfast and my hat accidentally dropped on the floor.
Sahki saved me. For $4.50 I got a 12 oz. bowl of steaming hot lentil soup – the best I’ve ever had in NYC – which filled my tummy, warming me long enough to make it home and pick my hat up off the floor.
Sometimes haste pays off.
