veggie tomato soup

1 med onion chopped

1/2 cup green beans chopped

1 lg green pepper chopped

3 garlic cloves (i love garlic)

1 tsp sesame oil

2 tbs olive oil

fry these til near soft

i used a separate frying pan

add ~1 cup diced tomatoes

here i switched to the pot in the picture

1 can tomato soup

~7oz coconut milk

1 can corn

1 can drained black beans

1/2 small bag of spinach

~black pepper

~seasoned salt

~bouillon cube (i used chicken flavor - that’s just what i have)

~splash of worcestershire sauce

1 jalepeno diced

for the initial adding of ingredients i keep the stove at medium heat.

once the spinach has softened a bit and is more involved in the rest of the soup i turned the heat to simmer and stirred occasionally.


*dice green pepper and green beans.

*simmer vegetables to your desired consistency

i’m no expert.... but i, otherwise, find this fairly delicious served hot with a piece of whole wheat bread.

or...for the unhealthy one...or child inside of you....add goldfish. (the cheesy cracker kind)

one minute

good morning world.

can i see you different today.

scrape off the scrap

that might not hold me back

but wears me down.

through sewn cathedral windows

around the world we go

you grace over me

somehow drunken by twilight

tender pangs of lust

for love i can’t own

i’ll let you have a piece of me

so i won’t feel alone

so close to freedom

to my skin holding in

then my flesh betrays me

i’ve lost control again

scraps scraps i pull together

guessing on the pattern as i go

you overlook my creations

you want deeper things, i know

so here’s my body here’s your prize

i’ll get lost, i’ll close my eyes

warmth...warmth for one minute

for one minute you love me.

caught myself in the blade. :(

went waterskiing with the family the other day. my time to shine. i finally got up! :)

and i don't think i'm ever going to be able to talk politics with my family.
