Have you ever seen a more beautiful soup? I think it SCREAMS Fall. Whose ready to carve pumpkins and frolic in the leaves?

Sadly this soup was not of my own creation, but was in fact a re-creation of Erica’s Vegetarian Carrot Soup.

The recipe was simple with just a handful of ingredients. The recipe’s secret ingredient was the parsnips which added a wonderful peppery spice to the soup. The addition of the pecans and raisins on top also gave a nice crunch and touch of sweetness to each bite.

On the side I roasted some red potatoes that i seasoned with salt, pepper, and chili powder.

I believe that was my first soup of the season. This makes me happy. 🙂

Tonight’s dessert was brought to you by the colors GREEN and PINK.

This was my first trip to the Winter Park Menchies and I have to say I prefer it over the Sand Lake Road location. It was bigger and had way more flavors that caught my attention! They even had Dole Pineapple, Peanut Butter (!!), and Irish Mint!

My bowl contained a little of all of the above + Oreos and Strawberries on top.

A Tight Gluteus Maximus

September 16, 2010

I may have underestimated how many lunges and squats I did in my impromtu living room work out yesterday.
