Cauliflower Soup Goodness

In attempt to eat healthier at work I have been making a lot of healthy vegetable soups lately. And one of my new favorites is this cauliflower soup. I love creamy soups but we all know that our waist lines don’t – but this soup gives you that creamy comfort food quality without the calories.

Now this weekend was the second time I made it and I made a few tweaks. The first time I thought it was a little runnier than I would like. So this time I doubled all the veggies (cauliflower, onion, garlic) and held the amount of chicken broth which was perfect. It made the soup just that tad bit more creamy instead of runny. At first when I chopped all the cauliflower and put in the pot with the broth the broth didn’t cover all the cauliflower (I thought maybe I was over-zealous in my veggie quantity), but after everything started simmering and cooking down it ended up being perfect.

Give it a whirl! Here are a couple of the other soups that have been in my kitchen lately (they all freeze super well! So I make big batches and freeze them in individual containers and just pop one out the night before for lunches the next day!)

On My Mind: Pom Pom Curtains

So my husband and I recently purchased our first house. I was sad to leave our condo downtown but we were in desperate need of more space. We bought and old ranch that needs a lot of love. First we are working on the master bedroom. Trying to fix up the trim and update the bathroom. But I need to start making the house a home asap so I have at least one oasis while the rest of the house is under major update process. First for the master I need curtains. I have been loving pom poms latley. I have some pillows I sewed with pom pom trim already but I think the next addition should be the curtains. Some inspiration….




they actually have these….currently available at Urban Outfitters – pretty good price considering how expensive the trim is to DIY….
