On my way back from Jefferson Vineyards (I was picking up an assignment – not drinking!) I got stuck in a TERRIBLE storm!!!
It was very scary, and lightening nearly struck my car. I didn’t know where to go, so I went to the bakery!
Matt gave me comfort
And comfort food in the form of a cookie piece!
Back at home, I was still hungry. Perhaps my longer-than-normal run!? I had a taste of the granola bar Diana brought to HLS – delicious! It held together really well! And a small spoonful of SFB!
My snack had to power me through a 7pm dinner because I had a play date with Levi!
My favorite little friend lives just a few houses away so Jenn and I made a walking date. It was a little spoiled with the weather, but we had a good time anyways. Levi even fell asleep!
Back at home, I was one starvin’ marvin! Must be that time of the month. I couldn’t keep my paws out of the bacon, cheese and beer while I cooked.
And the crouttttonnnns!!!!
Tonight I made a simple 10 minute meal out of a boxed soup, fresh greens and simple add ons
Make Your Own Sweet Potato Soup
1 box Trader Joe’s Sweet Potato Bisque (or Pacific/Imagine brand) 3 slices loganic bacon 1 massive salad spinner full of kale Grated or cubed cheese Homemade croutons 1 tbsp coconut oil Garlic gold nuggets to taste Kosher salt to taste Yogurt for garnish
Cook bacon in pan and remove when brown on edges. Add kale to bacon grease and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Add soup and stir to combine. Heat till hot and then simmer for 10 minutes. Preheat broiler and toss cubes of bread with coconut oil, salt and garlic gold nuggets. Broil croutons for 5 minutes until brown at edges. Pour soup into bowl. Garnish with croutons, bacon, cheese and a dollop of yogurt.
Too full for dessert!
