Book Review

Well, since I haven't managed the complicated cascade of making something-finding the camera-taking a picture-downloading picture-blogging, I decided I could manage a book review.
Love Soup by Anna Thomas is the best cookbook I have read in a long time.

The book has the warm chatty tone I remember from the Vegetarian Epicure, but is a much lighter cuisine. I have found more recipes that I want to make than I do not, and for someone who keeps kosher, is allergic to seafood, and has strong opinons about vegetables, that is a rarity.

I am going to make soup on my next day off. Yummm.

Today at work I was three nurses all at once. ( Two more nurses in my office down with the flu. We are speculating that they are pumping it through the air vents to infect as many employees as possible, and thus save some coin on purchasing vaccines.) I await with anticipation the pay raise I shall receive for this. What, why are you laughing?

Soup. Yum!

Soup sounds good. My vegetarian daughter's favorite is "The Passionate Vegetarian" by, I kid you not, Crescent Dragonwagon. Huge book, and everything we've tried in it has been scrumptious.

Sorry about the understaffing, the overwork, and the flu going around!

Boy, you've really been through the proverbial wringer lately haven't you? I'm a little late, as usual, but "Poor baby!"

Soup sounds good. Too bad there isn't some other magic potion you could take to work that would make everything better there too.

I'm glad you're over the flu! Yuk! Hope you get full strength back fast.
My second vegetarian cookbook back in the day (1970's!) was Anna Thomas's first book. I didn't realize this one was out, so I just popped over to amazon and ordered it. Thanks for the heads up!

I am not sure why one nurse doing the work of three is any different than standard operating procedure.Isn't that what we always do ??and I am sure you did the work of a clerk, a nurse tech,a doc and maybe even a pharmacist. Nurses do it all everyday. Hope I don't sound to grumpy.
A tired nurse from Michigan who knows how overworked and under appreciated out job can be!!!
Love you,
