Magazine Cuisine: Episode 18

We are starting to fall into a groove that includes actually cooking dinner and trying new recipes again. The hardest part now is finding recipes that fit the dietary restrictions that I am on for Matilda's food allergies, which still remain a mystery.

As the weather turned cooler this past weekend, we were both craving a good soup so we turned to Cooking Light's: Chicken and Barley soup.

I felt uber-productive as I had dinner ready for Nate when he returned: a true 1950's moment in our house.

And Nate was over complimentary of the soup. Who wants to guess why? Was it:
1) Because the soup was actually delicious
2) Because he wanted to reinforce the behavior of having dinner ready when he got home
3) because it was the first time in about 3 months we haven't had a protein, starch, and veggie dinner.

Perhaps it was all 3, but either way it was nice to be cooking again, cooking something new again, and to have dinner done before he got home so we had more time to spend together.
