Creamy Kale and Bean Soup

While winter has been a dud in the snow department, it still has had its fair share of damp and dreary days. Last weekend was blustery and soggy and called for soup! I was craving a few different soups and put the best parts of each of them into this and created a warm and hearty soup!
The base is sauteed carrots, onions, and parsnips (which are totally underrated if you ask me). Then you get creamy goodness with white beans and nutritional yeast (seriously, what is it not good in!). Then kale to make it a quintessential healthy stew!
When you puree the soup you really can appeal to your taste buds. 100% creamy, a but chunky, leave it alone...no wrong answer. I like it about 75% blended for a semi-chunky bowl of goodness. Now, I know it may not look pretty, but growing up as a vegetarian I learned the best stews weren't the most beautiful!

Enjoy!

On the Slopes

I am one who dances with the mountains...
I am one who dances with the wind...

{John Denver -- Dancing With the Mountains}

Reunited with my snowboard and the slopes!
To be honest, after my femur injury I was a little warry of getting back out there, but with approval from my PT and a much needed carefree happy place day - I went!

I went with my work friend Devorah and instead of my usual Wachusett, we decided to go into NH to Mt. Sunapee. I hadn't been there in 5 years and it was so great to hit the longer higher slopes of the great north.

Boarding for me is like getting back on the bike. My leg behaved amazingly and I was flying down the slopes. I promised my PT I wouldn't do any black diamonds and I behaved (next time though...).

The mountain was empty too so we had no lift lines and open trails to soar down. A perfect way to get my first snowboarding fix of the season!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 6

The Good:
Another book down! This was an amazing read - Atwood is just an amazing author and the semi-continuation of the story in The Handmaid's Tale was captivating.

The Random:
Because the elementary hallway is where you expect to find a mini-dog treat...?

The Fun:
My second graders received their first Chumash (bible) on Friday. They were adorable during the program and their parents (and teachers!) were beaming with pride.
