Creamless Cream of Vegetable Soup

 We have been busy travelling, renovating, working and scheming.  New York City is always a rush, but it feels as if life whizzing by with even greater fervor in the last few months.  However, it is been all been the best kinds of busy. Our days have been brimming with birthday celebrations, weekend escapes, social events, holidays and long adventures. Tomorrow we set off with a few of our nearest and dearest for nine days in Costa Rica. We are living life and living it to the full. In the face of all the crazy, we are fulfilled and we are happy. That being said we have been mindful to take few moments to slow down and home cook some good, hearty fall meals. Which brings me to today’s newest recipe for a creamless creamed soup.  It is fast and it is tasty. Enjoy, and happy fall all! Continue reading “Creamless Cream of Vegetable Soup”

We were fortunate enough to have Jameson’s amazing brother and sister-in-law come spend a week with us awhile back.  We had such a blast exploring our city, relaxing and just plain talking with them.  By getting hitched and combining our families have Jay and I have amassed an incredible, dynamic, ragtag group of exceptional family members.  We may have one of the largest immediate families in the history of mankind but we wouldn’t change it for the world. We so enjoy and cherish every second we have with any member of our brood.  So having Eton and Angela here with us to experience how we do our Brooklyn lifestyle was such a joy.

We ate out a little, but we ate in a lot because I seriously love having new taste buds to impress.  This Vegetarian Quinoa Enchilada Bake Quinoa  (with meat options to appease my carnivorous brother-in-law) was a hit and had Ange asking for the recipe as a souvenir.  I figured I shouldn’t keep the dish just to the family, but spread the love around.  Lately with our hectic schedules, we Jordan’s are all about this dish because it requires little prep, virtually no mess and leaves us leftovers for days.  It is the perfect, filling meal for the evenings when you need something quick but don’t have the time or energy to pull off a multi-course meal.  Enjoy.
