The days get shorter, colder and with the occasional rain day even depressing. This calls for heart-warming foods again, not quite soul food, but you know what I mean. I still had a big bag of chopped curly kale, so easy to prepare, just throw in a hot pan with a bit of broth or white wine or water. Add some diced red bell pepper, a bit of cheddar cheese (vegan or not) and penne pasta. Perfect midweek dinner!
