So, I had some free time yesterday morning and did a little cooking to get Steve and me through the next couple of days. After having just a little too much fun during my weekend off, it seemed like a good idea to take a temporary leave of animal products and alcohol. Nothing major, just a couple of days of austerity to help me feel better. To that end, I whipped these two things together before lunch:
Summer vegetable soup:
SO glad we finally got some rain last night and Monday. It's been about six days, and I've got about five little sprouts so far of the spring mix seeds I planted last week. Not bad, considering the package said it would take 10-14 days for sprouting to occur. With any luck I'll be able to make salads with it before summer's out. Both boxes of radishes are coming along nicely as well.
Also, for those of you in Columbia who know and love the All-Local Farmer's Market: they've just announced that they're expanding and will also be open on Wednesday evenings from 4-8 p.m. starting August 24. If you haven't already, go check it out! For more info, click here:
I've still got three yellow squash and two bags of spinach to dispense with in the next few days. Check back to see what kind of ingeniousness I cook up next time to keep us fed and make good use of what's on hand!
