J came to visit this weekend and I made the world of food for her. First I made Mexican hot chocolate cupcakes (adapted from a couple recipes in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, which seriously people, if you don't own it, you should) as a "congratulations you're employed!" present. They were awesome.

Then on Saturday we went to the Bennington Farmer's Market, where a wonderful baker gave us two baguettes for the price of one, and another farmer gave J two pablano peppers for free because she was admiring them while I was picking out acorn squash. She told him she was happy to pay for them, to which he replied, "sure, you could pay for them, but they're a gift." Farmer's markets and Bennington are some of the best places in the world.

Then we made soup!

So here are the recipes. The acorn squash, along with some beautiful purple carrots and a couple of parsnips, turned into the world of soup (seriously it made like 8 servings).

That recipe is here: )

The cupcakes were similarly awesome. Also spicy. Also delicious.

Mmm coffee

With two weeks left in my summer in Somerville, I have discovered a lovely coffee shop. With free wifi. For the win! Now if only I had found it earlier in the summer...

But still, there's nothing like a delicious soy latte to get me out of bed on a bad morning. No bike ride in sight -- especially since it's gonna rain soon and I am too lazy to drive out of the city -- but it's a day outside of the bedroom and outside of the bed. Baby steps. And maybe peach tart tonight.
