Food for the soul

Yesterday was cold and rainy. I was  home cleaning  and decided to make a delicious, warm, rainy day dinner. I looked through the pantry and came up with black bean, lentil soup. Sometimes when I make a  bean soup It turns out on the  thicker side, not so soupy...  I could have added more water but decided not to. Instead,  I cooked some polenta, chopped tomatoes and avocado, and poured it on top of the beans and lentils. And of course I added a little sour cream, and a corn tortilla for dipping. Yum!  It turned out perfect. I love making up my own recipes, I always have a vision of what I'm trying to make, but it usually turns out slightly different in the end. At least I can say most of my concoctions have been very tasty!

Mushroom Market

Who knew that there are hundreds of different types of mushrooms?! I love mushrooms and walking around a market area I spotted these unique mushrooms and  captured their beauty. They almost look fake to me,  that's how pretty they are.  Next time we go back to the market I will make sure to bring some home to try.

Friends and the city

I love that San Francisco is just a hop, skip and jump away. Nick and I met our friends who were visiting from Southern California. We had lunch at Gott's Roadside, then walked around the market to search for a cup of tea. The day was perfect. Nick and I agreed that we need to go to the city more often, it's fun to get away for the day and what better place to go than SF.
