It was rainy and cold all day. Unlike most people I LOVE those days. I love the light on gray days and the smell of mud. I also mostly love the cozy mood a good rain puts me in. Today when I got home, despite having a dinner date with a friend at 5, I had to eat some soup. I made White Bean and Sausage Soup last week and had enough for a small bowl left. It’s like protocol for me to have soup on a rainy day, even if it’s only a can of Campbell’s (chick and stars is waddup).
Other than sharing the recipe and not so great photo I also wanted to share a new project I’m working on. I love cooking and discovering new recipes but I need a place to keep them all. So I’ve decided to make a cook book smash book. What’s a smash book you ask? Well I’d never heard the term until very recently when I was blog hopping and came across it on Give a Girl a Blog by Kellie Winnell. It’s like scrapbooking but books are usually themed. The craft is perfect because Richard and I agree that looking at pictures of food is so much better than reading about them.
Now I just need to improve my foodtography because sometimes my delicious meals look absolutely unappetizing after I see them in my pictures. Well practice makes perfect. I also made a simple, warm, crunchy and cinnamony Apple Crisp this week. So good!
I also have a TON of avocado’s that’ I’m trying to tear through before they go bad. My go to recipe when I have avocado’s on hand is Avocado Tuna Salad. It’s like basic tuna salad with whatever things you normally put in there, I like tomato, onion, salt, pepper, about a half tablespoon of mayo and a whole avocado and if it’s too dry I add pickled jalapeño juice. I normally don’t put extra avocado on top but like I said I have a ton of them to eat. The picture kinda looks yucky but I think maybe tuna salad is difficult to make look extremely appetizing but it sure IS tasty.
