Food

I'm mad for soup, lately. Also, I'm trying to eat less meat, and more beans/other alternate proteins.

Last week, we made a minstrone-esque bean soup, which was good.

Tonight, I made me some salsa soup; one jar of hot salsa, two cans of beans, one can of corn, a couple chipotles, and some beer (corona, in my case). Heat. Enjoy with more beer (though in my case, I discovered that the corona from the cooler at the LCBO had been put there moments before I picked it up, and was not, in fact, cold). Even better, enjoy it outside on a patio or balcony.

Strictly speaking, according to the guidelines of my nutritionist, I should have left out the corn - there's enough starch in the beans to take care o the carb part of the meal, and since I eat enough cereals at my other meals, I don't need to worry about the incomplete protein side of things. However, since this is the first time I've made this, I wanted to stay close to the recipe as it was described to me. The chipotles and beer instead of water were my changes.

The Lizard is going to be out at dinner time for the next few days, so I think that I am going to be eating a lot of bean soup in the next few days - I have lots of leftovers from both soups.
