Now, this is all to say, "Sorry!" I've not been the best poster and maker as of late. I'm hoping to squeeze in some projects for gifts in the time between now and my 6am flight on Saturday - fingers crossed. But I thought I could share a bit about what I've been surviving on as a hermit in my apartment writing statement letters and making a portfolio.
Last week I made myself sick on this fantastic sweet potato hummus. I had more sweet potatoes, so last night I sort of made this sweet potato soup. I say sort of because I didn't have all of the ingredients and didn't wan the fuss, so banking on my knowledge of how little it takes to make a "soup" from my cauliflower experience, I caramelized some onions with a bit of ginger and oil, added broth (I love to buy it in the boxes that way I can freeze the left overs and use for times like this), garlic, salt and peper, and 1 1/2 peeled and chopped sweet potatoes (I took the remaining 1/2 and roasted them in chili powder to have on top of sauteed spinach). Cook for about 20 minutes until soft and blend in a blender. Voila, soup. I made the curried apple bit according to the recipe.
Instead of my normal bi-weekly granola mix I made granola bars from Martha Stewart's fantastic cookie iPad app. They are a little drier than I'd hoped (my fault, I'm sure), but I love that they are held together with dates instead of lots of sugar or oil.
Now, to work I go. I hope everyone has a lovely week and is getting everything done that they need to!
