Just after the girls left for their Georgia holiday vacation, I went to my mums' house for the eve. She makes her traditional spinach pie which is not vegan so she made a great little butternut squash soup with roasted portabello mushrooms. It was really good, something I might try to mimic down the road.
It has been a little lonely with the girls gone but they will be back soon and the house will be bustling action again. In the meantime I have to just try to get things done and remember to cook for myself!
