Homemade Bread & Split Pea Soup for Two

We spent a rainy morning at the farmer's market today. Our budget was $10 and we got a large pumpkin, 25 lbs of yukon gold potatoes, 2 acorn squash, 6 large onions and a bunch of carrots. That's a lot of food for $10! I think we did very well.

After the farmer's market I felt like it was a great day for home made bread and soup. So I got a recipe for bread out of How it All Vegan, and I made 2 loaves- one white bread and one sun-dried tomato and artichoke.

While the bread was rising, I made some split pea soup. Then, while the bread was rising the second time, and the soup was simmering, I ran to the local health food store to pick up some things since they are closed tomorrow, and by the time I got home the power had gone out from the storm. Good thing we have a gas stove. Anyway, I couldn't set up my fancy photo spot since the power was out- so I took todays pictures out on my balcony.
