I got to use my slow cooker again yesterday to make Bacon and Lentil Soup from the Simple Little Vegan Slow Cooker. When we got home, the room smelled so good! The bacon strips (Yves) in this soup give it an amazing smokey taste since it cooks all day. I threw in some aduki beans I had in the fridge and subbed out the cilantro for basil, oregano and rosemary. So delicious!! I also made a french baguette from Garden of Vegan to eat with the soup. Nothing beats dunking fresh bread into a good soup, it was my favourite part of the meal!
Some exciting news (for me at least, not my body)... Katie a.k.a Sam's Mom generously gave me a copy of Vecan Cupcakes Take Over the World, since she got another one for Christmas. I'm not making any cupcakes til Valentine's Day, but I cannot wait. I owe all future enjoyment of cupcakes to Katie :) Thanks so much!!
