Winter Blahs

Well, we had a nice blend of precipitation today - freezing rain and wet heavy snow - at least it gives us a chance to have March come in like a lamb in comparison!

Today is Monday, and I had a bunch of library books due (I request all sorts of titles that come in all at once, it seems, and I never have a chance to even open the covers in the three weeks I have them). One of the books was Veganopolis. I had actually opened it when I first picked it up, and even made a recipe - it was for a homemade quinoa cracker. The recipe turned out really gross - I think I had rolled the dough out too thick, resulting in hard bricks that could easily call for some dental work. When I saw that it was due back today, I thumbed through it quickly and came across a 'Chicken' Noodle Soup that would be ideal for a crummy weather day and for using up some leftover seitan pot roast from Vegan on the Cheap. It was also a great way to use up little bits of pasta that remained in various pasta boxes in the pantry too!

Not only did the soup warm me up, but Tracy sent me an email from the National Capital Vegetarian Association regarding this year's Veg Fest...there's a cupcake competition! I'm super pumped! It sounds right up my alley - I just have to think of which one I could make...
