The pressure is on! Tomorrow is the first day of the Vancouver One of a Kind Show & Sale and there is all kinds of prep work that needs to be done. Walls are painted, shelves are installed, cards & birthday calendars are packaged up but there’s also carpet and under pad to be laid, furniture to be set up and then just the general nervousness that comes with a big event. Let’s just say that it’s a soup kind of week.
Earlier , when my thoughts were still about what to eat for dinner than the panicky thoughts that are filling my brain at the moment, I roasted up some tomatoes, garlic, herbs and jalapeno peppers. At that point, I wasn’t sure what I was going to make. A pasta dish maybe? But it had been a while since I had made soup, and when that thought entered my head, I just couldn’t shake it. Into a stock pot these fragrant tomatoes and peppers went, along with some onions and celery for balance, some homemade stock and a can of black beans. A squeeze of lime near the end also didn’t do this recipe any harm either. For the recipe, please head on over to Poppytalk.
So wish me well at the sale if you are from out of town, but if you are in Vancouver tomorrow until Sunday, please stop by our booth (we’ll be at booth G18: The Hob Snobs Craft Collective). I’ll be the nervous red-head wishing she had a bit of spicy soup to help calm her nerves.
