This post is going to be all about food because I have a million pictures to show you. I have been pretty busy lately, so as a result, my blog posts have become more sporadic. I have eaten some delicious things, so lets try to catch up!
- 1.5 T light butter
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, peeled & chopped
- half butternut squash, peeled & chopped
- chicken stock
- salt, black pepper, red pepper to taste
Melt butter in large pot and mix in all vegetables. Saute over medium-high heat for 5-10 mins. Pour chicken stock in same pot until it covers all vegetables. Add seasonings. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover. Simmer until all vegetables are soft - about 15 mins.
Transfer contents of pot to Vitamix blender (I am sure another blender or food processor would work) and mix on HIGH for 1-2 mins.Check out that color and consistency! super creamy.
I served the soup with sauteed broccoli, baked tofu, and a slice of whole wheat toast w/ smart balance.
Monday, we had a "major" snow storm in Maryland, so I decided to stay home from work. I made a great bowl of oatmeal. (oats, raspberries, walnuts, bananas, spoonful of barney butter)
Had a sandwich for lunch. Sliced granny smith apples, white cheddar cheese, smart balance, and a drizzle of honey on toasted wheat bread.
Played with Oscar in the snow. He loves it.
Whew! Are you hungry from checking out all those eats? I know I am.
I promise I have been keeping up with my workouts, but more on that later because this post is long enough. Have a great day!
