It's not easy being green

It was supposed to be a dry weekend but when I got up this morning it was raining - again. I was glad that I had soup planned for dinner - it was the perfect ending to a busy, rainy Saturday. We sat through a wet and cold soccer game and then took the dogs for a long hike.

Tonight's menu was:

*Palak Shorva (curried spinach soup with toasted coconut) from Fields of Greens. Everyone liked this a lot - it was, however, very, very green. The picture doesn't quite translate how green this was! The recipe called for garnishing with toasted, unsweetened coconut which I did. I also swirled in some coconut milk.
*Crackling Cauliflower from the Whole Foods Cookbook - a family favorite.
*Homemade baguette (pretty basic recipe but it always works and everyone loves it).

Now off to finish cleaning up...
