Today, I made a pot of "stormy day bean soup". To measure the water and chicken stock, I used this handy 4-cup measuring cup that I received through a free mail-in offer several months ago. The arched feature inside the cup eliminates the need to crouch to eye level to read the markings on the side of the cup, although they are provided, as well. I avoided its use until today, strictly because I was stuck in a rut... comfortable with the old way of doing things. I'm thrilled that I dug it out of my cupboard to give it a try. What a novel idea! It's a keeper. (I poured pomegranate juice up to the 2-cup line so you can see how easy it is to read from above.)
In addition to the measuring cup, this is what I received free for sending in an Arrowhead Mills and a Hain Pure Foods label.
The cookbook includes a good variety of recipes. I have earmarked vegetable lasagna, turkey quinoa loaf, and peppermint chocolate cake made with pureed baby food prunes.
