Sunday Vegetable Rice Soup

Sunday Vegetable Rice Soup

Mike’s wanted to see the movie “Everybody’s Fine” with Robert DeNiro since it came out the beginning of December. Well, last night he made me look up where the movie’s playing. I found out it’s only playing in Shirlington, a suburb next to Alexandria and Pentagon City. 

So after Ice Skating, we got in the car in our search for something to do indoors and agreed on the movie. By the time we got there, found out it was playing at 4:45pm. Well it was only 2:45pm, so went drove over to Tyson’s Mall to walk around and decided to take in “Up In The Air” with George Clooney. Good movie… funny, relevant, and just plain nice.

Sitting at home in the comfortable, warm shelter from the freezing cold outside, Mike’s waiting for 60 Minutes to come on and I’m going to head downstairs to eat some more of that Vegetable Soup. It’s just the thing to warm me up and energize me for Sunday Night line-up of shows. 60 Minutes, Home Makeover Edition, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sisters. They’re all supposed to be new episodes tonight, and I can’t wait!!!!!  

But before that… it’s Sunday Vegetable Soup and some Whole Wheat Bread and afterwards some Vedge Juice.

Freezing cold and windy, that’s my forecast for the day. I woke up with just about every inch of my body aching from my Pilates workout. I didn’t mind, infact, it took my mind off my back pain and made me feel like I’m putting a dent into this body of mine.!

Got out of bed fairly late, later than usually and so we got ready for the day and hung out in the living room. Mike had already made two different types of soups and I ate the Vegetable Rice Soup he made with all the left over Veggies and Rice in the refrigerator. I sprinkled in some Whole Wheat Bread and chowed down. It was very delicious… makes me very jealous that Mike’s able to make food at a drop of a hat like this.:(

Vegetable Rice Soup:

5 Celery

4 Yellow Onions

3 Potatoes

3 Parsnips

2 Cans Diced Tomatoes

1/2 Bag Spinach

1Cup Rice

1Can Kidney Beans Canned (drained)

Put water chopped up vegetables, spinach, beans, diced tomatoes, and rice all into pot and place in crock pot for 1 hour.

 Even thought it was 24 degrees and windy outside, Mike decided to take us ice-skating. I said, lets go! So we took a drive to Reston Town Center and parked near the skating rink set up in the open area of the mall. We went into the information area where they were selling tickets and skates, and sure enough, I took my boots off and told the girl size 9. I was sad Mike didn’t buy a ticket, but that’s to be expected. He’s not much of a sportsy guy. But that’s O.K. his son and I took to the ice until I got my ice skating legs… and by that time, we were icicles from the blasting wind and very chilly temperatures. So, we got off the rink and headed over to Panera Bread for a nice Hot Chocolate.
