One of the downsides of being a renter is that you have very minimal, if any at all, space modification options. Meaning you can’t remodel, you sometimes can’t even paint, you can’t make permanent improvements to the space. Another downside is a lack of storage. While I keep attempting to downsize our stuff in general, it feels like I’m going in circles.
I spent an hour or so at the end of my weekend making some yum-fort (aka yummy comfort) food to eat throughout the week. Yummy, but still pretty healthy. Broccoli cheddar soup is one of my favorite chowder-y soups, and I found this recipe by Lulu the Baker, and it looked yummy. It makes way too much for just one meal, so its perfect for a few days of easy lunches or dinners. Plus, the weather in LA has been a bit cool this winter (minus the freak heat wave we had last week), and a good soup on a cold night always hits the spot.
