I even managed a shower AND make up today!
Okay, one item left on the list! I have a couple of hours left before bed, so I will definitely get a start on it.
Wait, I didn't finish my list, yet I am calling myself an over-achiever? Heck yes I am.
I made pea soup today as well as everything else!
Friends had given me the ham bone from Christmas, and I had enough of moving it around in the refrigerator. As long as I was chopping onions and celery for tomorrow's Clam Chowder, I might as well chop some for pea soup too!
I am feeling well prepared for meals this week. Lunches are done. There are enough leftovers from a soup I made yesterday, tonight's dinner and tomorrow's dinner, it will be a matter of packing them in my favorite to-go containers and heading out the door! If you are like me, and need your morning coffee to do anything, prepacked lunches are key to a balanced life!
On to tonight's dinner. I love this stuff! Delicious, colorful, and nutritious. Might as well add simple to the description as well.
Let's start with the stats. These do not include the beans.
Here is the recipe; I got this from the Rancho Gordo newsletter I receive on a monthly basis.
Recipe notes: I used only 1/4 cup olive oil, and 1 tea kosher salt. It was plenty!
The fennel getting browned. A great way to guarantee your stove top is cleaned. This spatters everywhere!
The tomatoes, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper have been added. Ready for the oven!
After about 20 minutes and a couple of stirs. Smells so good!
Easy and delicious!
Think about serving this the next time you are having guests over for dinner. Vegetarians? No problem!
Now I wished I had added make cookies to my list today...
