Anytime of the Day Turnip and Kale Soup or VeganMoFo Day 10

Saturday Rob made Parker's Favorite Turnip and Kale Soup which needs to be renamed Josie and Parker's Favorite Turnip and Kale Soup, but really that would be way too long of a name. I was busy with customers and the kitchen was full of chairs which are usually in our dining room, but I had transformed the dining room, living room, and music room into a "store" so I'm not sure how he even had space to make anything. He also made some quick pasta with tomato sauce for dinner...the soup was to be for Sunday. We ate the pasta and did our evening stuff and were going to bed when Parker asked about the turnip kale soup. He had a lot of dinner, but who is going to say no to their kid wanting turnip kale soup. So he ate two bowls before bed. Then Sunday morning he asked for turnip kale soup for breakfast (two more bowls, one bowl of oatmeal w/raspberries, and a Sunbutter and jelly wrap...what is this kid going to eat as a teen???). Often we eat leftovers for breakfast, but it just made me laugh that he wanted the soup last thing before going to bed and first thing waking up in the morning.
Saturday, Rob bought some dried chickpeas and also brought me a coffee treat (iced decaf mint soy latte...except he didn't make it decaf which became an issue as the day went on...I do not deal with caffeine well) since I'd only had a couple hours of sleep Friday night preparing for the Tribal Life sale. Somehow the coffee spilled while he was riding over a bump on his bike and got all over the dried chickpeas. This meant that we had to rinse them and soak all of them right away. So...this week with be everything chickpea. Thus, dinner was more turnip kale soup with hummus (with the paprika Parker requested sprinkled on top and some Bible bread stuck in the middle). We are sadly out of kalamata olives, but it was good hummus anyway.
