i’m moving to malawi in 12 days. whoa. so i’m sad to saw i won’t be making jewelry as much for the next 9 months while i’m away so i won’t be here that often. thanks for all the support you’ve given me. if you are interested in following my malawi journey you can find me at aliciaelizabeth.blogspot.com
i’ll be working as a hiv/aids technical advisor with the malawi gov’t as a peace corps response volunteer.
wish me luck.
it’s cold and rain here today on this halloween eve. and being that my favorite part of fall is soup (other than squash, gourds, and root veggies!) i decided to made a homemade organic locally grown wonder! yum!!
Speedy (almost Vegan) Potato Soup
*4 carrots (or so)
*4 potatoes (or so)
cover with water and boil until soft (20 mins)
in another sauce pan melt:
*1 square of butter (ekk saturated fat! I’m going to try a plant based fat next time..)
*1/2 cup flour (being the first time I made this I did half whole and half white. you need some of those whole grain goodness to soak up all the sat fat!)
mix together over a low heat until smooth, then add
*1 1/2 c water to mix
bring to boil (stirring constantly - this will burn and stick to pan!!)
then mix into soup, add pepper and spices al gusto.
wowza this is the first non-cream potato soup i’ve made and it’s GOOD and oh so quick.
