The last time I posted this soup, I was whining, because the weather was in the 60s and going to drop to the 50s. Right now it is 50 degrees and going lower. Tomorrow will be even colder. This is our winter right now. So what better than a bowl of Sweet Potato Chipotle Bisque? Pure comfort food for Jim and me!
Jim and I have been hibernating today. The after effects of Hurricane Patricia are still with us. Who would have thunk that a hurricane in the Pacific would have this big an impact? It’s been raining since early yesterday morning. We go a lot of rain. Not the 18 inches that had been expected. But a good amount. Overall, it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. Some flash flood warnings. If you are smart, you just stay home.
One good thing that happened was that with all the heavy winds, most of the dead fronds came off my palm trees. Those trees is about 50 feet tall and still growing. I had been planning on getting my tree guy to come and clean off the tree for winter. Not now.
With the rains the temperature is dropping. It’s about 66 now and will get a lot cooler. Jim just told me that the wind was 37 miles per hour. This is not our usual October weather. It is definitely soup weather. I pulled out my recipe for Sweet Potato Chiplote Bisque. I have been making this soup for awhile. I actually do it in the summer. It is such a great soup. I love the sweetness of the potato with the kick from the chipotle pepper.
I originally got the recipe from Creative TV’s show ‘Vegan Mashup’. So yes, this is all vegan. You can use regular dairy products and it will turn out fine. Later I found the recipe on line at The Vegan Latina. Read the rest of this entry »
Summer in Vancouver is shaping up to be cool and rainy; I won’t lie, I love this cooler weather and the rainy days. I’ll admit that I do miss eating food in the sunshine, there’s something remiss about eating local strawberries while huddled under a blanket, wearing thick wooly socks. So this Sunday, when we had […]
The other day I read that we had record breaking temperatures across the Midwest in June. 3 degrees above normal. It’s already pretty hot in Texas. I live on Galveston Island and we have been in the upper 80s. Pretty warm for us too.
So here is another gazpacho recipe. This time made from watermelon. And before you go thinking watermelon? Look at the recipe. It has serrano peppers as an ingredient. I am from Texas and we like a little kick in what we eat! The sweetness of the watermelon along with the heat of the peppers sounds great!
whelp, here we are smack dab in the middle of summer. I I hope y’all had a fun and safe holiday weekend. Mine was a welcomed quiet time. After a little bit of long overdue retail therapy, I found myself craving gazpacho . I dug out my Original gazpacho recipe as well as my Roasted veggie gazpacho […]
It is hot, hot, hot on Galveston Island! Especially so, because I just got home from Quebec, Canada. The temperature there was in the 70s with an occasional dip to the 50s at night. Heavenly!
It’s good to be home though. I do need something that will help us cool off at dinner. I found this wonderful gazpacho recipe. This will do!
Yesterday was officially mine and my husband’s one year wedding anniversary! I really can’t believe that we’re here already. 2014 seemed to drag into April of 2015. Then, all of a sudden we’re married for a year. This year has been a fun year for us- we moved to a new house about 2 weeks […]

Congratulations on being married 1 year! My husband and I are celebrating our anniversary next week. I do have to say that we have a few years on you all. That time goes fast!
I love your no-chicken noodle soup. Talk about an ultimate comfort food. I remember my mom would open a can of chicken noodle soup when it was cold and windy out. It always warmed us from our toes to the tip of our heads. This looks like a wonderful recipe. One I am going to try.
I don’t know what the weather is like by you, but here on the Gulf Coast, looking out of the window, it’s gloomy with a drizzle of rain. And it is pretty darn damp. Being on an island I do expect it to be damp, but this is bone chilling damp.
So I saw this recipe that I had saved to make. This is a completely vegan dish. I know it has sausages in the title, but they are meatless. I hope you give it a try.

I has been pretty cold for the Gulf Coast. Low 50s in the days and 40s at night. We live on an island, so the cold seems colder with the damp. I am constantly am looking for warm filling foods at this time of year.
I saw this recipe for potato and fennel soup. Yum! What’s even better is that I have a ton of wild fennel growing in my yard. I love potato soup. I think the fennel will sweeten it up. I hope you try it!

What a perfect post for this week! The New Year is almost upon us. We want to start it out right. And what better way that to have an especially lucky meal in celebration on the day!
We here on the Gulf Coast take our black-eyed peas and greens quite seriously for New Years Day. So seriously, that many grocery stores sell out of the black-eyed peas. LOL!
Here are some great recipes from Lana!
