Soup for the week and plans for the weekend.

You see this? This is approximately 8 cups of soup that I will be eating all week. It's the sephardic red lentil soup recipe from Olive Trees and Honey that I just absolutely love love love. I don't know if 8 cups of this is enough for the rest of the week to be honest!

Yesterday I had a day off and my two younger cousins visited me. We made a day of tea sandwiches, tea, cookies, chips and a Doctor Who marathon! Sorry, no pictures!

This saturday is my dad's 65th birthday party and I'm planning to make the following for my family: spanakopita (recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance), potato salad (Veganomicon's Prospect Park recipe), hummus and a three bean salad (kidney, white and fava). I'm also making Isa's cookies again because everyone loved them last time. All these treats shall keep my mind occupied until the weekend. I love to cook!

Great looking soup. It wouldn't last the week at my house.

Your weekend menu sounds wonderful- Happy birthday to your dad!

Oh my! That soup looks scrumptious. I need to get this Olive Trees and Honey book. I always see you write about it.

Continued drooling over the photo of that soup prompted me to order Olive Trees & Honey today. Can't wait to try it!

As a matter of fact the authors of several vegan cookbooks you've cited probably owe you some royalties, after the book order I placed today!
