Meeeegraine!

Hello my friends - I wanted to write a post last night and catch up with you all but I left work early with a migraine. Yuck. When I got home I laid on the couch with my audio e-book and napped for a few hours. Got up feeling MUCH better but then had to get busy in the kitchen.

I had a number of ripening fruits and veggies that I needed to get creative with. So I popped a pepper squash in the oven to roast. Then I cut up a whole cauliflower that was starting to get a wee bit droopy and put it on the stove to steam. While that was cooking I started to sautee some onion, carrots, celery and peas to which I added some previously cooked brown rice and a couple of eggs. I also hardboiled some eggs to add to salads.

I pureed the cauliflower and added spices so now have lots of creamy yummy soup. I have a nice big container of veggie fried rice and 1/2 a squash left to eat as I couldn't resist last night and ate the first half.

Odds and Sods:
  • still trying to figure out how to heat my house in PEI
  • will post some juicing recipes soon, I promise LENA!
  • will update the March challenge soon CARLA!
  • and SAM - I will hold you to that visit this summer. I'm thrilled that you want to come!!!
  • and best of all..................(drum roll please.....)..............

  11. It is the easiest soup in the world to make Carla. I like pureeing soups as you can blend different vegetables into 1 soup.
