Weigh-in Wednesday

Up one. Oy, this redundancy makes me wonder why I have a blog. Most weight loss bloggers actually lose weight… but not this one! Thanks for reading anyway 🙂

My spirits were in need of repair, so I pretended that it wasn’t 80 degrees here today, made some pumpkin soup, and took it over to Missy’s for an impromptu harvest dinner party. Happy again!

Pumpkin Curry Soup

Start with one 6 lb pound pumpkin, sectioned and baked until tender. That’s a lot of pumpkin…

Chop and saute 2-3 small onions:

Add a bunch of chopped garlic (5-6 cloves) and ginger (1-2 tablespoons) and a palmful of curry (more than you think you should).

Saute until fragrant and start adding some broth to soften everything up.

Start adding pieces of pumpkin:

Add more broth, one can of light coconut milk and some agave or honey (to take the edge off). Then puree with an immersion blender.

Secret soup ingredients:

Sunset-porch happiness, waiting for the soup to arrive:

All together now! (Harvest fresh salad with garden-grown heirloom tomatoes… happy late summer! Oh, and Dave’s Killer Bread, too):

How much have we missed this girl? Love you, Missy!!!

Workout today: 70 minute Chrisanthi spin. And a Tabor walk. Happy Mental Health Day to you, too.

  1. You have a blog because you have an amazing story to share, you’re an excellent writer, chef, photographer and friend. You inspire us every day and when I’m up a pound or ten, I know you love me no matter what. I love you and you just need to enjoy the beautiful weather in your fabulous hot bod!
