Dreary Night, Comforting Soup

by Meghann on May 26, 2009

On the drive home from work this evening the dark, dreary atmosphere of thunderstorms and rain really had me craving a nice, hearty bowl of soup.

The best thing about soup is that its incredibly easy to make and you can literally throw anything in it and have it come out amazing.

For this particular soup I dug in to my fridge and cabinets for these lovely ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Portobello Mushroom Pacific Soup
  • Onion
  • Broccoli
  • Yellow Squash
  • Edamame
  • Tomato
  • Nakd Quorn Cutlet
  • Chili Powder
  • S&P

I simply heated up all the veggies with the seasoning and the quorn cutlet until everything was soft. I then poured the mushroom soup broth over and was done.

On the side I had the last 1/4 of my 5 Grain Baguette.

It was the perfect comfort food.

You know what else makes perfect comfort food? Ice Cream!

I had a Coconut Milk Ice Cream Bar. Yum! Yum! Yum!

This afternoon I finally got around to sampling the Better Whey of Life Yogurt I was sent the other week to review for the blog.

I tried the French Vanilla with Quaker Oatmeal Squares mixed in.

Honestly…. it was ok. It was a little too thin for my taste. I prefer thick, creamy yogurt, it just was not for me. But to each their own.

Did anyone watch the series Life As We Know It a few years back? I Netflixed the series and its pretty addicting. Why is it all the better shows only lasted a season? Maybe its the fact I didn’t discover them until 5 years after they had been cancelled. lol

Why They Run

May 26, 2009

Last night I finally got around to watching a documentary that was highly recommended to me by my team’s mentor. Why They Run is a documentary about a Team in Training group in the Chicago area. The movie showcases the team training for the Chicago Marathon, but really the movie focuses beyond just the race more »
