two weeks?!?!??

How is it that I've been gone from the blogosphere for two whole weeks?

Well, I haven't been home much, and I've been eating out quite a bit, too. I've popped over to Chipotle with friends a couple of times, grabbed sandwiches from the coffee shop for lunch on my break at work, and Dan and I have been to the Holy Land Deli, to the Vietnamese place on my block (AMAZING stir-fried tofu with veggies,) and this morning, to Hell's Kitchen in downtown Minneapolis. (Mighty tasty -- I had the most delicate, fluffy, lemon-ricotta pancakes this morning . . . wowza. Pricey, though -- for two breakfasts, one coffee and one hot chocolate, and a big glass of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice for Dan, our bill was over thirty bucks. Whoops! Even though the food was amazing, this will have to remain an occasional treat.)

I have cooked a little, however!

Broccoli, White Bean, & Cheddar Soup (from Eating Well):
vegetable broth
broccoli crowns
cannellini beans
white pepper
extra-sharp cheddar cheese

(This one was a big hit with Dan -- he ate almost the entire batch himself over the course of two days!)
(P.S. The soup was SUPER easy to make.)

Banana Bread (I veganized the recipe in Joy of Cooking):
This turned out very, very nicely.

Dinner tonight:
(One cannot exist on soup alone, eh? Plus, I had a request for garlic mashed potatoes.) Jerk Tofu (from the Post Punk Kitchen,) garlic mashed potatoes with Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy (from Vegan with a Vengeance,) garlickey kale, and fresh local tomatoes.

That tomato looks so good, as does the fruit salad next to your soup! Yum...
