so that was a rather long blogging hiatus, eh? never fear, dear readers, as i have been cooking up a storm in the past month. which means i have a ton of recipes stored up and ready to share with you!
mike and i have two cardinal rules for grocery shopping: 1. make a list before going to the store, and 2. never shop hungry. since i’ve discussed my meal planning and grocery list methods recently, i thought i would focus on the latter rule. you see, when we shop hungry it’s astounding what makes it into the cart: lots of sugar-laden food (read: cookies and chocolate), tons of salty snacks (read: pretzels, chips, popcorn, etc), oh yeah, and someone always gets cranky (read: me). does this sound familiar to any of you?
i’ve been fighting a cold this weekend. unfortunately, this isn’t a new occurrence – since i started working in a medical clinic, i feel like i’ve been fighting off colds every other week.
you guys, we’re going through a cold weather spell up here in seattle. and it’s making me want to curl up under a blanket, read, and only leave the coziness of my sofa to eat a steaming bowl of soup.
a couple of weeks ago, we were searching for recipes that used corn and quinoa, as we had an abundance of both on hand. we stumbled across this recipe, and decided it was the perfect fall soup.
