Weekends, as I’ve mentioned before, are a great time to do a bit of extra cooking. Instead of having a quick, rushed breakfast it’s possible to take the extra time to prepare something a little bit more elaborate and time-consuming.
Sunday evening can also be a good time to prepare a tasty dinner as well as doing a little bit towards preparations for the rest of the week.
In my case that meant that instead of simply prepping vegetables for dinner I also used the prepped vegetables and a variety of leftover vegetables to make a tasty soup. Yes, I’m still “cheating” and using a soup maker, but the end results is damn tasty.
Chopping up a bunch of fresh vegetables and making a soup out of them is quite satisfying 🙂
So for the next couple of days I know what I’ll be having at lunchtime – homemade vegetable soup and probably a banana or some other fresh fruit.
Tonight’s dinner worked out pretty well. Chicken pieces with a load of vegetables and plenty of herbs.
The vegetables were fresh, but unfortunately I’m currently stuck with dried herbs, as my track record with fresh herbs has been pretty bad (short version – they keep dying on me!).
