#56 Make 5 Vegetarian meals

Veggie Pizza

Recipe: Bun in the Oven

While this recipe isn't new to me, it certainly applies in my quest to make 5 vegetarian meals. H actually suggested this recipe after we had some carrots and celery left over from that vegetarian chili I made last week.

While chopping all the veggies is time consuming, it is well worth it. I had this recipe a lot growing up, and it never failed to be a crowd pleaser. I'm really happy that H also appreciates this recipe.

Since this isn't a warm recipe, it works really great in summer. Also veggies are usually cheaper in summer.

#12 Organize all Recipes

I love to cook. I've subscribed to Kraft Foods, Real Simple, and Food Network Magazines. I'm too much of a neat freak to keep a ton of old magazines with only a few recipes I'm interested in. So I have a lot of loose pages of recipes that I want to make.

I decided to organize them by putting them in a 3-ring binder in page protectors. Finally got around to organizing them.
The only thing I don't know is what I want to do with the recipes once I've made the recipe. For the most part once I make a recipe I blog about it on my food blog. So, I don't need the paper copy anymore. But the paper copy inside it's nice safe page protector is easier to use than my laptop when I want to make that recipe again. So I guess what I'm getting at is that I'm thinking I want to file them. Maybe in the back of my 3-ring binder so they are easy to access?

Anyone else have any thoughts?

#56 Make 5 Vegetarian Meals

Cheesy Chili Soup

Recipe: Bun in the Oven

Once again, the link to my food blog has the recipe.

I found this recipe in Kraft's magazine that I get. At first I thought it just looked good for a cold night. When I realized that it didn't include meat, I was stoked to have found another vegetarian recipe! Just had to substitute vegetarian vegetable broth for the chicken broth, and I was in business.

This was a hearty vegetable soup. It's so easy to make and really tastes good. I plan to make this again!

#40 Take an "Us" picture every month

Here's our third picture. Man it sure does seem like we dress up a lot! ;) That's what happens when we attend 5 weddings over a span of 14 weeks. Once wedding season is over trust me, you'll see us dressed down.

This was the wedding for a pair of really good friends that we used to work with. I actually can remember when they weren't a couple and they didn't really know one another. Wow how time flies and things change. They are so perfect for each other. B & M certainly won't have a shortage of laughter in their marriage.

Here's to many years!!
