Because the food I'm eating is awesome

So lately I decided I wanted to get rid of a lot of the greens that were sitting around in our fridge, some of which I don;t particularly care for raw - carrots, celery, spinach, etc. So I decided to make soup. First I fried up some diced onions and garlic and cubed carrots and celery. I then added some spinach, celery greens, and other green stuff that was hanging around. After a few minutes I added water, and then when it came to a boil I put in some vegetarian broth cubes and some orzo. One the pasta cooked, I had the soup, and it was delicious!
But it's too hot to have soup right now, so I'm relying on other staples. I get bread around the corner every few days and have it with peanut butter, hummus, vegan cream cheese, EarthBalance, whatever. I also eat a lot of produce - peaches, green beans, sugar snap peas, and salad mixes, mostly from the farmers' market on Wednesdays. I also have cucumbers and spinach, but I seem to have bought a bit too much of them...
All the greens can go in the salad along with the vegetables, which I've finally started to eat with salad dressing only because my aunt gave me a really great brand. Sometimes I have my veggie burgers with the salad too; I recommend it especially for the Wildwood burgers.
Finally, there's the grilled cheese. When I visited my boyfriend in LA last year, I discovered that almond cheese is absolutely the best at melting. Ever since then I've been trying to find the particular brand I got back then, and I did last week! Even though it's way too hot today, I made grilled cheese, and I've finally figured out how the heat works on these electric burners, so I did not burn the toast this time.
