For the first time in over a year, i am sick:(:(:(
After i got back from argentina i was going to school full time and working over 40 hours a week and working out atleast 2 hours a day and i was sick for about 2 years straight!! I just wore myself down and would get sick for a few weeks and just as i was getting better i would get sick again and again and agin….
Thankfully since i transferred i havent gotten sick, until now:(
So since i didnt have anyone to take care of me:(:(, I threw stuff in the crock pot, took some decongestants and went to sleep.
After getting up at 4 am, having Pat Croce come into the gym (!!!) and then taking a photography test, i came home and had a big bowl of soup:):)
Veggie Bean Stew
(or everything in the freezer and veggie drawer soup)
- 1 cup black beans (cooked, mine were in the freezer)
- 2 cups the-most-amazing-Dominican-style-beans-made-by-my-boyfriends-mom (if you arent lucky enough to have these then you can just use 2 cups of your favorite beans)
- 1 cup kidney beans
- 3 cups diced tomatos
- 2 carrots roughly chopped
- 2 celery stalks roughly chopped (i just snapped them in half and tossed them in)
- 1 large onion, cut in half
- 1/2 sweet potato roughly chopped
- plethora of garlic powder
- 1 tsp siracha
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp cumin
Throw all of the ingredients into a crock pot and add a few cups of water. Cook on medium heat for atleast 6 hours. Take out the onions, carrots, celery, and sweet potato and blend until smooth. Add the blended veggies back into the crock pot and cook for a few more hours. Or eat right away if you are impatient and hungry like me:) But if any of the beans started out dried, then they might need more time to soften.
This soup is soooooo amazing!! I honestly wasnt expecting too much but it tastes so incredible and it cleared my sinuses so thats always a winner:) Sorry for no pics but do you seriously expect me to haul out the heavy camera, take a nice shot, transfer it to my laptop, edit it and then add it on here?!?!? Yea not happening lol!!
Im gonna eat some more soup, take a nap, and then get working on my projects!! Instead of finals, i have to do 1 project for my design class and write a paper for my Art History class and i have all the way till next week to get it done:):) YAY im super excited to almost be done this semester!!
