Crock Pot to the Rescue


Today, the Lemonator and I whipped up a simple batch of 13 bean crock pot soup for dinner.  We soaked the beans overnight in water and broth last night, then added celery, carrot, onion, canned tomato and seasonings in the morning.  It was done by the time we were home from work.  On the side, I had a piece of toasted Ezekiel bread.  I couldn’t decide whether to spread my bread with pesto or guacamole, so I broke my bread in half and had some of each.  The guacamole was delicious and needed to be eaten up, but there is something really magical about pesto combined with bean soup–I’m even known to dollop pesto straight into my soup on occasion.  I also had another glass of the Seven Deadly Zins and an apple to round out the meal.  It was very satisfying.

Tomorrow will be yoga day.  I am nervous, but also excited.  The yoga studio I’m trying is quite near a healthy restaurant I’ve been wanting to try, so I think I’m going to grab a bite to eat there before my class.  Wish me luck!
