A Warm-up

Driving home from New York last night we heard the local weather forecast: sunny and warm with a high around 20°. The Honey and I were quite happy to hear that as we were dreading what weather was awaiting our return, especially with shorts and tank-top weather in Atlantic City and New York. Needless to say I was crestfallen this morning when the radio announcer piped out ‘cold with chance of showers today’. What happened to that great weather? And overnight?!?

It has been a miserable day and it looks as though the sun is peeking out a bit. Will it return tomorrow for a beautiful day? All day I’ve had a chill that runs deep down. Since we were out of town all week there isn’t much in the fridge and everything in the freezer requires some thawing/planning. A trip to the store will be in order. When I had heard sunny weather was in the forecast I hoped to take a walk down to the market to pick up some greens and veggies for a nice salad. Instead, it looks like soup.

To warm me up from the inside out I settled on a can of Spicy Black Bean Soup. It’s Loblaw’s Blue Menu line and some of them are good for those of us who are gluten-free. The ingredients are pretty healthy (being from their ‘Blue Menu’ line), low in fat, and as for the flour, it contains rice flour.

The soup is nice and hearty and would be perfect with a slice of GF garlic toast. For a canned soup, it’s tasty and nice and easy.

About the trip? One word: Fab-U-lus! I’ll post about it later this week as it’s possible to eat GF there, and often it was lip-smacking good.
