Every sunday I clean out the fridge of the left over veggies, throw them in my crock pot and make, Everything But The Kitchen Sink Soup. I throw this together Sunday morning then in the afternoon we make our weekly and chaotic trip to chinatown to get new veggies and fruit. Each week promising we won’t go on a Sunday again. It’s always chaos there!!!

Here is what it looks like this week. (please excuse the crappiness of my camera, it’s almost 10 years old)

This soup has barley, tomatoes, tomato paste, leeks, corainder, yam, brussel sprouts, onions, garlic, vegetable stock, left over coconut milk (wasn’t added when the picture was taken) seasoned with oregano, sage, basil and marjoram.

Then I had some left over premade polenta, so I made these yummy polenta fries!!! Oddly it made me think of my friend Adrianne….

I used homemade garlic oil to coat them, then put them on a cookie sheet and set the oven to broil… damn they were good. I dipped them in ketchup and honestly, they taste miles better than potato fries!

While both of those were cooking I made my weekly batch of Seitan… yes pronounced Satan… not sure what I am going to use it for yet. So many things!
