My good friend, Cyber Momma at Homegrown Minds brought Food & Wine’s Garlicky White Bean Soup with Chicken and Chard recipe to my attention a couple of weeks ago, and I decided to give it a try tonight. I followed the recipe exactly with two exceptions: I added portobello mushrooms and a little white wine. Per the recipe’s suggestion, I paired the soup with a fresh loaf of Dutch Crust and a green salad. It turned out to be a delicious meal about which I could feel good.
This is just a quick post, mainly so I have a reminder of a really neat summer challenge by Cassie at Back to Her Roots. Basically, you make a list of activities for mind and body and give each one point values that make sense for you. Then, you try to earn 10,000 points by the end of summer. Cassie not only provides a nice set of example activities and point values, but some nifty .pdf’s to get you started.
