Healthy Chick!

I found this great recipie in Ellie Kriegers new book, So Easy. And it is delicious, healthy and "so easy"! It is also very inexpensive to make! Enjoy!

Roasted Tomato and Black Bean Soup
7 medium tomatoes, quartered
1 large onion, cut into large pieces
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 tbsps olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
5 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
2 15.5 ounce cans black beans (preferably low sodium), drained and rinsed
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

DirectionsPreheat the oven to 375. Toss the tomatoes, onion and garlic with the oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl, then transfer to baking sheet. Roast until the garlic cloves have softened, the edges of the onions are browned, and the tomatoes have collapsed, 35-40 minutes, stirring once after the first 20 minutes. Transfer the roasted vegetable mixture to a 4-quart saucepan. Add the borth, beans, cumin, chili powder and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and blend until smooth with an immersion blender or in batches in a regular blender. Stir in the hot sauce. Divide among 4 bowls and garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro.

So I am a huge fan of Valentines Day! The cheap chick side of me however is not a huge fan of florists. When my husband and I were first dating he sent me a HUGE bouqet of roses. They were beautiful and I loved them, and then he told me they were $75!!!!! If you know me...that is 3 weekd worth of groceries! hahhaha Ever since I useually recieve a beautiful bouqet straight from the grocery store for a fraction of the price. However there is always a slight twinge of jealousy on Valentines day when everyone around the office gets there big bouqets...insecurities come out and I feel upset...even though it is my choice. Well here is a great deal to get your special someone...or share with your special someone :) 1-800-flowers.com has the 50-Bloom Spray Roses Bouquet (vase not included) for $24.99 which is sooo beautiful! Use coupon code "SAVINGS15" and the price goes down to $21.24. With free shipping!!! It includes at least 10 stems of spray roses, which feature multiple blooms on each stem. It is still a weeks worth of groceries in my house but such a deal!
