December Update

Hello everyone! I deeply apologize for not posting much in the past couple weeks. I recently declared my second major and planned out my remaining time at UCSC. It is also finals week this week so needless to say, I have been preoccupied with that. I also put a lot of my funds from the past two months into Christmas and birthday gifts. I have many family and friends who have birthdays around Christmas or in January.

Black Bean Veggie Soup

Soup weather is upon us! The rain has finally started consistently falling in Santa Cruz and cooking is what helps keep our apartment warm.

Most of my veggies were from Trader Joe’s and all organic. I know I need to start writing down the prices more often but I believe organics at TJ’s are at least a dollar more, depending on what you buy. I want to say that the amount of vegetables to make the soup is around $10. I get canned beans in bulk from Costco.
