Crazy Delicious

Yesterday was a little slow I won’t pretend otherwise. But sometimes a slow day is just what one needs to get really creative. I set out to make a new salad – the kind I want to eat every day. Its perfect (IMHO) but I’m gonna save it for the new year when you’re all back and ready to start resoluting. And Chef Ingrid, when challenged to make a ‘crazy-delicious’ soup, totally had at it.

This pic doesnt do it justice but we just got hit with two families of six and I gotta hurry now to get the blog up. Its a spicy lentil curried vegetable melange w/coconut milk which makes it dairy free my friends and definitely what I asked for (see subject heading).

Try the soup & Happy New Year Hell’s Kitchen!
