Our very-nearly-vegan daughter came to help Charlie repair the roof, and I made soup. She says she gets teased at work by all the omnivores, who say things like, "Had your grass today?" and "So what CAN you eat? Lettuce?"
Silly people! For lunch, I fixed us this soup. I hadn't know what time she would arrive, so I threw this together in a flash (ha-ha, they were fixing the flashing around the chimney, and I put this together in a flash, I crack myself up, which is good because nobody else is laughing).
Meanwhile, I made Buckskin Bread. Buckskin Bread is probably my favorite recipe to share: Two parts self-rising flour and one part water. That's it. Mix it, put it in a pie pan or spread it out free-form. Bake it at 400F for 20 minutes. Great with soup and/or butter.
