This week’s lunch was a repeat from a while back. We’ve actually had it quite a few times since discovering it. It is the Spicy Carrot Peanut Soup from the Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special Cookbook. Brent and I have both been suffering a bit from colds this week, and this soup really drains your sinuses! Because we keep all the extras on hand – soy sauce, peanut butter, chili sauce, etc… the soup really only costs me less than $2 to make. Just the cost of an onion and a bag of carrots.
I cubed up some Overnight Whole Wheat Bread to make some croutons, because you know, pureed soups really need something extra to mix it up in the texture department.
Tonight’s dinner was pretty uninspired, just some salmon salad on bagels with some sauteed bok choy on the side. So I don’t even feel that bad for not getting a picture of it, although I’m proud I managed to make something under duress. I’ve calmed down about school. I’m just taking a few pieces at a time. I have a huge Physio exam Tuesday night, and my ever-looming entrance exam on Wednesday, so I just have to maintain sanity for this week, which seems pretty doable to me 🙂 (although my meals could get pretty boring…)
