The vegan challenge is over, but I can’t seem to stop making vegan food. When your body is fed good, whole food you can’t stop. Rumor is a storm is headed to the NYC area. I’m skeptical, but the wind is vicious.
Vicious. On my way back from yoga it found it’s way into my bones like is was ready to settle for a long winter’s nap. And here I thought spring was about to do just that. Oh well.
I decided on soup for lunch.
I love soup.
I know. I’ve said this.
So I’ll just get down to the get down. White pumpkin soup. So, so good.
I howled after a spoonful.
Ooowww baby! The beauty of the soup is in the simple flavors. White pumpkin tastes like a cross between regular pumpkin and butternut squash. Proper blending is the key to combining the flavors.
I ain’t afraid of no stinkin’ last gasp storm. Armed with soup the cold will go running.
This is yoga. And it keeps me warm on a cold day.
