My go to soup when I have cold is of course matzoh ball soup, but I was in the mood to create something from scratch instead of using a boxed mix.
I found a new recipe that is simple but will sweep you off your feet.
Add some onion, celery and green onions to a pot and stir with a dash of olive oil for a few minutes.
Add 3 cups of broth (veggie or chicken) and 4 cups of peas.
Bring to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes.
Then blend in a blender, or with a hand blender, to your desired consistency.
I topped mine with some pepper, garlic and chives.
Perfect served hot or cold!
And just like that it’s time to go back…
I arrived in Newark bright and early this morning with this lovely friend to greet me…
I don’t know about you but I am not adjusting well to the cold. This weekend I kept very busy to avoid sitting in my freezing apartment. I ran lots of errands, went for a hike, exercised at the gym and I even bought sweaters!
I also got my haircut – where I knew there would be lovely heat from the blow dryer.
I also made a hot meal of ground turkey and tomato sauce over half of an acorn squash.
And I made sure to get plenty of cuddles from this little one.
Now time to get warm with my space heater at work!
Here’s hoping I make it into work today…
Somehow it is Monday again so instead of accepting reality, put off the beginning of the work week a few minutes longer by clicking these great links:
Great ideas and products for the home and everyday life
New cooking ideas and grocery finds
and for when you just want to look at something cute
I wish I was here:
