VeganMoFo Day 22 - Pea Soup


Specifically, the Double Pea Soup with Roasted Red Peppers from Veganomicon. Again, I like to run an immersion blender through the pot before adding the frozen peas. I'll make up a loaf of bread to go with it.

Sorry, but foods lately have been pretty basic and simple, like yesterday's veggies and rice and tomorrow's Spanish rice. Between feeling punky from the hypo spell the other day, wishing the doc would increase my thyroid dosage because I'm starting to fall asleep right after breakfast again, and the change in weather, I just don't feel like making anything more elaborate. Many people say hypoglycemia and hypothyroid go hand in glove, and I believe it. Add the shorter days and there's a recipe for depression if I ever saw one.

The one bright spot on the menu? My son, who has been unemployed since he graduated with his M.S. in Electrical Engineering this past May, has a job interview today. If everyone can send positive thoughts towards Jersey City's financial district (right across the water from downtown Manhattan) around 2pm we would greatly appreciate it. :)
