Just a casual summer evening around here. I ventured to the bakery for the afternoon for a marketing meeting (we have an intern this summer!) and a call with our mentor. For some reason I was just not hungry today – I only felt called to have 1 bite of Praline Cookie and 2 water bottles of water.
We’re winding down in preparation for going to Baltimore tomorrow and made a soup full of bits and pieces from the fridge. I have been avoiding soups since about 6 weeks pregnant but for some reason a tomato-y soup sounded good tonight.
This simple soup involved combining in a pot:
- 1 cup chopped leftover beef steak
- 2 summer squash
- 2 carrots
- 1/2 a bell pepper
- 1/2 cup frozen corn
- 1/2 cup frozen lima beans
- 1 can diced tomatoes in juice
- 1 cup broth
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- Black pepper
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 2 glugs liquid smoke
Mix together and let bubble for about 30 minutes, or until hungry and veggies are cooked!
Served on the side: one big Spinach Feta Scuffin!
I ate my half with gusto – it was sort of like having a biscuit with dinner!
We try to eat “family dinner” most days of the week, but tonight Matt decided he wanted to watch TV and I G-chatted with Caitlin! Can’t wait till she shares her birth story : )
Feeling pretty sleepy tonight. I have SYTYCD and reading to do!
