the kitchen today, all day

I could not stay out of the kitchen today.

~First soaking and cooking garbanzo beans.
Making delicious hummus.

~Next I uprooted every last basil plant, plucked each leaf, washed them and proceeded to stock us with pesto for the winter, not to mention some just plain frozen basil.

~I baked the tofu I had marinated over night slowly and saved it away for sushi and sandwiches later this week.

~Then I quick cooked kidney beans to make chili for dinner.
It cooked most of the afternoon with sweet potatoes,sweet onions, garlic, and carrots. 
It will show up again in burritos later this week.

~I also made potato salad for my sweetie, although he informed me mine gives him heartburn. :(

I guess I need to make something sweet tomorrow to wash this savory smell out of the air.
Maybe lemon bread with blueberries I picked Friday.

This cool weather could ruin girlish figure. ;)
I need to go for a long walk
or even a run if I can muster it up.
