what i am eating

I love cooking and eating, and I especially love looking at pictures of food!  If you love food as much as I do, please add your food pictures/recipes/food related posts to the linky below.  All you have to do is link back to this blog post.  I look forward to seeing what everyone else is eating this week!

My week started out with soup, which it usually does in the winter.  I rarely make the same soup (unless it is my take on the Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana...).  This week was a white bean and vegetable soup.  Super easy to make.

2 quarts veggie stock
1 quart crushed tomatoes
1 head of cauliflower
6 large carrots, chopped
1 large red onion, chopped
4 cups cooked white beans
2 teaspoons curry powder
salt and pepper to taste

It was really delicious, my husband declared it the best soup he ever had - which he seems to do every week, so I can't really count that.  The only change I would make is to possibly put a can of coconut milk in, and more curry powder - but I love curry.  This makes a huge pot of soup, and it is great, because we eat it all week.

My husband's birthday was Tuesday, so we also had one of his favorite meals.  Pasta with fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, basil and olive oil.  I have talked about this dish before on my blog, it is one of our favorites, especially in the summer with tomatoes from the garden and homemade pasta - yum!  We used to make it with fresh mozzarella cheese as well, but Matt and I have both been backing off the dairy lately, and we found that it is still just as good without the cheese!

  1. Thanks for hosting!

    Today I shared "The 80/20 Rule" which gives a lot a freedom NOT to sweat the small stuff when it comes to healthy eating and "Coconut Oil Chocolate Treats - Regular and Spicy" which are a good for you treat and a great way to get coconut oil into your diet!

    Have a great week!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday and letting me know about your linky party! I enjoyed reading your post from last week about what your little ones like to eat too! :)

  3. We eat a lot of soup this time of year. Yours sounds delicious! The pasta sounds really yummy as well!

  4. Your dishes sound delicious!! I made a beef stew this week. As we were eating it I thought I should take a picture but never did! I love soups this time of year. They are so easy & yummy and yet I don't make them often!

  5. As always, thank you for the link up. That's my favorite Summer pasta dish, especially after we return from the Farmer's Market!

  6. Thanks for hosting again! This week, I added two autoimmune success stories. One woman reversed her muscular sclerosis through diet, going from a wheelchair to riding a bike. Another woman put her lupus completely into remission through diet. Food is powerful!

  7. Both those meals look amazing. I'm definitely going to try the soup. I make a very similar one but without curry and with lentils. I actually had it this week even though it's hot here in Australia.

  8. Looks so yummy! Stopping by from the Boost my Blog party to say hi! I like your link up and am adding mine to the list!

    Hope to have you visit me over at The Self Sufficient HomeAcre!

  9. Stopping by from BMB. I'm looking forward to seeing what you're up to.
