Spinach Parsley Soup

SpinachParsleySoup (5 of 5)

Life is busier than ever and I'm loving it, but I'm also missing my sleep-in weekend mornings and other little comforts I've taken for granted for so long. Going back to school and working part-time has been a good perspective shift for me, but as a result, this little blog hasn't been getting any action.

My cooking tends to happen on Sunday nights in large batches, and I fill my shelf in the fridge with mason jars of ready lunches to keep me going through the week. It's a pretty good strategy, although I still sometimes cave and go out for dinner or lunch or somehow skip meals (I don't know how, since I'm basically an eating machine) and so sometimes my jar-lunches get neglected. It's a learning process, but it's always nice to come home and know I've got my dinner already taken care of.

Free time during the daylight hours for photography and cooking doesn't come by often, so I snapped these shots quickly. I miss creating and sharing recipes, so here's one that I've been making regularly. It was inspired by several Persian soup recipes I came across, gormeh sabzi and asheh reshteh. It uses an entire batch of parsley (whole damn thing, no joke) which I love, as my herbs usually wilt into a sad soggy mess in the fridge. So if you like herbs and green things, get on this soup already.
