souper size me (vegan mofo day 3)

i'm trying to bring my lunch to work more, to save money and to make sure i eat healthier. instead of just buying more food every week for whatever sounds good, i am looking at what i already have and what i can make with that plus a few other ingredients. its no groundbreaking strategy but prior to wising up i've managed to accumulate a lot of dry/canned goods that are just waiting to be made useful.

i'm completely soup crazy right now, probably going to make a lentil soup or minestrone on sunday. i just have to get the fresh vegetables and i'm all set. the only problem is that i don't have many ways to transport soup to work. i love the corningware grab-it's. we had three but are now down to two since my sister broke one. i haven't found a replacement yet, might get the set of four from amazon. anyhow at target today i saw the slightly bigger corningware soup mug and decided to go for it. if i love it, i'll get a few more. i can't wait to have a huge mug of steaming hot soup, yum! it also wouldn't be fall without at least one batch of calabasitas.

It has been soup week in our home. Hey when your sick, tired, celebrating, or having friends and family over. Soups are the go to meal!

Totally! So far none of us are sick, and hopefully cramming in more veggies/protein will keep us taht way. Thanks for your comment.

hey--you need to go to the local Corningware/Corelle outlet store and stock up on "stuff"--I work there and we sell all of the things you mentioned---

I hate plastic, but it's so pervasive. I should go check out some corningware storage.

I'm making soup this weekend for canadian Thanksgiving and I'm psyched.
