Even though I suffered from some serious cabin fever, I have to say that I’m a bit sad about having to drive into work tomorrow. My week of working from home proved to be quite productive (because I was surrounded by a chatty cathy or micromanagement type person. Aaanywho – for dinner, I made Monkey Minestrone from Dreena Burton’s Eat, Drink & Be Vegan.
Originally I wanted to make the sweet potatoe chili but forgot to write “sweet potatoes” on the grocery list (that my dear husband was so kind enough to go to Whole Foods to get without me while I got mani/pedis with Kristin).
I flipped through the cookbook to see what I could make with celery, carrots, onions and chickpeas and lucky for me, Monkey Minestrone was perfect. And it was good.
The pictures aren’t great (they’re from my phone) but this made a TON of food. Looks like I have hearty leftovers for the week.
And to keep up with my having a drink every day this past week, I toasted my final day at home with some vino. $11.99 from Bin 604 (organic red). Delish!
I’ll blog about my Valentine’s Day later… but just wanted to share this delicious vegan dinner with the blogosphere.
