This morning things started off fine.
Got the go to use my kitchen sink and washer.
I ate a hummus and feta wrap up.
And a Chobani yogurt with KERF Peanut Butter, blueberries and almonds.
I decided that since I was able to wash dishes again that I would go grocery shopping!!
I went to 4 stores. FOUR! Earthfare, TJ’s, Harris Teeter and Target. I’m nutzo.
I picked up some good buys though! Coconut oil, garbanzo bean flour, rice cereal, and much much more!
So I unload my groceries, and start doing the dishes from lunch.
I maybe had my water running for three minutes TOPS! I get a call from the landlord, I’m leaking again. No more dishes for me tonight. Did I mention I was halfway through cooking dinner??
So now I have dirty dishes in my sink I can’t use.
Anyways dinner was good for what it’s worth.
I’ve been feeling a little crummy as of lately, so I thought some soup would be a wise choice.
I had some potatoes in the fridge, so I chopped them up and threw them in a pan with some olive oil in it.
I added some onion and fennel in the mix too. To spice it up, I added some nutmeg, paprika and oregano.
I deglazed the pan with some white wine [because everything is better with a little vino] and let the alcohol cook off.
Then I added some chicken stock and let it simmer for a bit until everything got soft.
I took my immersion blender and blended the soup for a smoother consistency.
At this stage I usually give the soup a taste. I think I added some more nutmeg and salt and pepper.
I bought this delicious block of Colby Jack cheese at TJs’ today. I really wanted some with dinner, so i had to figure out something to have it on [because on it’s own, cheese is lethal].
Since I was having soup I decided a crunch factor was necessary!! So problem solved, I made cheesey croutons for on top of the soup.
Plopped on a dollop of pesto for a little something extra.
I love soup.
Since I was all kinds of “bahumbug” today, I needed some chocolate to cheer me up.
More chocolate chip cookies?
Um, yes please!
I used my Silpat for the first time!
I also set off my smoke alarm….again.
Here’s hoping tomorrow is a better day!!!
I have a prep day at work tomorrow. The plumber has a big workday at my apartment too tomorrow.
Fun times for everyone.
P.S. I’m addicted to Modern Family!!
