Oy, it’s been a long couple of days. We had such a good break, but it was crazy! First we drove to NJ to spend a little time with my parents and break up our trip. Then we headed up to Boston for the majority of the week! I ate like I might never see food again. It was fantastic. I also took full advantage of the coffee machine I told you all about before!
We were really worried about traffic, so we headed out Saturday night and stopped in Syracuse for the night. We woke up more tired than before (the hotel was swarming with teenagers!) and headed back to the ‘Ville. In typical Morgan and Solomon fashion we unpacked ASAP. Neither of us likes to leave things waiting, and always unpack as soon as we can. Do you unpack right away, or leave things to be done later?
One of the best parts about coming home was seeing all of the fun packages waiting for me! Our neighbor was nice enough to check in on the apartment and bring packages inside this week. Our mail was on hold all week, so I’m hoping maybe there are some fun goodies in there tomorrow too! I’ll have lots of reviews coming up, but I thought I would start this week with a giveaway!
When Dr. McDougall’s offered to send me some of their ready made soups,. I was all over that! I really don’t like soups in a can because they are so salty, plus I am kind of picky about soup. Because I am vegetarian, and we keep kosher, any soup with chicken or beef stock is out of the question. These soups are vegan, so I know I don’t have to worry about any animal products (no ham in the split pea soup!) and they are gluten free. They come in cardboard containers which keep in the fridge for about a week, and seal back up!These couldn’t have come at a better time! I wanted something light with veggies for dinner so I chose the vegetable soup.
The taste was good, but not as chock full of veggies as I would have liked. The tomato broth was delicious and full of flavor, and the combination of vegetables were nice. I also wonder if perhaps all of the vegetables settled to the bottom of the box and I will find them next time I have this soup? Either way, it was a great, quick and filling meal. I had a few crackers on the side, and caught up on DVR. I was one happy camper.
I really can’t wait to try the lentil and black bean soups (LOVE black bean soup!). I also think I am going to leave the roasted pepper soup to Solomon (hi my family!). I had an unfortunate red pepper soup experience involving a bad case of the flu, so I can’t go near the stuff anymore!
