Jams and Soups
Where did this week go?  Seriously, it has flown by.  I hate it when that happens because I always feel like it's time I will never get back.  I don't feel like I have accomplished anything in particular other than kicking that upper respiratory infection out!  I will take that though!  Since I never get sick...I felt like a big baby with this one.  It sounds like everyone has it though.  Just so everyone knows, I love ya, but I don't need to share this kind of stuff with you.  So, if you have it...don't share!
Now, food.  Um, was I supposed to cook?  I guess I have done a little here and there...nothing major.  I was so freakin' happy when I got the Crofter's supply at my doorstep!  I took no time opening that up.  I have decided on one jar at a time.  We have a problem here with opening jars of jam/jelly/preserves and then not eating them.  I don't think there will be a problem with that with the Crofter's jars.  I started with Europe.  This one is a mix of black current and pomegranite with cherries and grapes.  It is YUMMY...that's what it is!  I realize this is not cooking, but I did toast the bread... 
Look at all the chunks of fruit in it!  Just so ya know, I am not really a "jelly" fan.  I like texture to my food, so I love preserves and jams.  Also, I am not a super sweet person (well, I am, but my food...not so much) so this is right up my alley.  You can actually taste the fruit.  All organic and natural ingredients.  So, I will be throwing globs of this stuff on anything I can! 
(Max kept poppingh his head in these, so I am posting this picture...just for him.  His faux hawk head is on top of the jar.)
Oh and I made the Carrot Lentil Stew again this week.  I threw everything in the pot and let it cook for an hour.  It really hit the spot!  I love simple things like this when you don't feel like standing in the kitchen for hours on cooking and cleaning dishes!  I decided to put some cabbage slaw in my soup at the last minute, so I microwaved a couple of handfuls of the cabbage in my bowl and then ladled the soup on top.  So good!  I have eaten' this for the rest of the week.
Then I decided to put hot sauce on it.  Seriously, isn't everything better with hot sauce???

I am really looking forward to this weekend!  Sunshine tomorrow!!!  I hope everyone has a good weekend!
