Rain Rain Go Away

It's tough explaining to Tucker why I refuse to go out running in this weather so I just let him out to see for himself. He came right back inside. He doesn't mind the cold, but I think we're on the same page about the rain.
He pouted about it all day.

It was a great day for soup though and for dinner I made one of my favorites: Pasta Bean Soup. I've always served it without the bacon, and use vegetable stock instead of chicken, but this time I added a few drops of Liquid Smoke to give it a little more depth. Delicious! A little almond butter on toast to accompany...perfect.



No workout today. Boo! I got a new Runner's World today that has a plan that's supposed to help keep me motivated. I think the fact that I'm excited to go to bed so I can read about getting motivated says a lot about my current state.

I wanted soup for lunch yesterday but had a middle-eastern veggie platter instead. Yum.

Aww, Tucker is such a furry cutie patootie!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! What I used for the Cheeze Cauliflower was cornstarch.

I love your label "vegan mofo"

I love the cold rain ... but it's all those years playing football I guess.

Pasta Bean Soup is one of my favorite things. So comforting!
