i haven’t been over to sara & hugh’s blog for quite some time, so was very excited to read that their cookbook is available for preorder at amazon.com! i can’t wait to get my hot little mitts on this one!

if your weather has been like ours, hot one day and freezing cold/windy the next, you might not know if a hearty salad or a warm bowl of soup is going to hit the spot. so, either one of these simple recipes should do the trick for your meatless monday or veggie any day…

first up, black bean and butternut soup!

our c.s.a. box has had some lovely squashes, carrots and cabbages, so i’m pretty excited to gussy this up (per sara’s suggestion) and make it more into a stew over quinoa or brown rice.

your weather a little warmer? then, what about a lovely wild rice salad with miso dressing?

since i have a pretty busy week ahead of me, i’m thinking i’ll go the big batch salad route and have this tasty meal ready and waiting for me!

thanks, sprouted kitchen and congrats on the cookbook!

“8”: a play about the fight for marriage equality… @8theplay #prop8

Featuring an all-star cast including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Lynch, Kevin Bacon and others, “8” is a play written by Academy Award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and directed by acclaimed actor and director Rob Reiner. It is a powerful account of the case filed by the American Federation for Equal Rights (AFER ) in the U.S. District Court in 2010 to overturn Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that eliminated the rights of same-sex couples to marry in the state of California. Framed around the trial’s historic closing arguments in June 2010, “8” provides an intimate look what unfolded when the issue of same-sex marriage was on trial.
