Vegan Grilled Cheese and Dill Pickle Soup

Image
I have a lot of pickles in my fridge and someone on Instagram had mentioned dill pickle soup. I thought it sounded interesting but I didn’t look up a recipe.  I was using things I had in my house as I  haven’t gone grocery shopping for awhile. I added vegan butter, half an onion, 1 potato, a few pickles, and lots of spices to the soup maker. I used curry powder, dried parsley, smoked paprika, mushroom seasoning, salt and pepper. I turned the soup maker on and went to do a workout. The soup maker is still my favourite gadget.  I am always amazed by how good things turn out in the soup maker. I will make this soup again but I will use more vegetables next time to get a creamier texture.  I found this really good applewood vegan cheddar block from the UK at Save-On-Foods on sale for $8.99. I thought it was expensive when I bought  but the block lasted a long time and it melts great the best melting vegan cheese I have tried so far. You can see the cheese here on my second Instagram accoun

2017 Goal Reached Earned $1000 CDN from the internet and $1375 Goal for 2018

I am so excited that I actually accomplished this goal I have some previous posts on what apps and sites I used. As promised in the last post here is the breakdown on how I earned it.


Total                                        $2017

Amazon mturk $413.81
focus groups $225.00
Swagbucks $105.00
field agent 98.25
EVA 62
prolific 42.05
ipsos isay 10
pinecone 42
shoppers army 31.5
Total $1,029.61

I actually earned a little more but I lost $15 with Qricket. I am no longer a VIP member so I expect I will be able to earn something with Qricket in 2018. I am not stopping here the goal for 2018 is $1375. 

To be clear not all of this is cash some of it is in gift cards so here is the breakdown on how I chose to convert the earnings. 

Mturk - amazon.com credits converted to Whole Foods and Starbucks gift cards
Focus Groups - Were paid in cash
Swagbucks - Starbucks gift cards
EVA - paid by cheque
Prolific - paid by paypal
Ipsos I say - Starbucks gift cards
Pinecone - paid by paypal
Shoppers army - paid by cheque

I keep thinking about why I met this goal this year if you read this blog you know that I have been trying for three years. The reason is I could see results which kept me motivated. If something no longer worked I could change to something else. The reason I did much better with Mturk than last year is I joined a facebook group that is amazing and supportive. Keep working at your goals, finding new ways to achieve them and joining communities with the same goals one day you will achieve them. 

The tentative plan for 2018 with knowing that everything on the internet can change in a few weeks and the way to meet the goal may have to change.

Mturk - $750 CDN - this is possible if things stay at the current rate I am at $20 USD a week now
Prolific -$200 CDN - I joined in November and made $42 at a slow time of year
Swagbucks -$150 CDN - there is more potential in Swagbucks than I use 
Field Agent - $150 - the last half of 2017 was slow hopefully will get better again
Pinecone - $50 - There wasn't much work in 2017 
Other - $75 - I expect that I may not make the mturk goal and will have to supplement with other work so I am setting this low but know that there is a buffer in here. 

Goal for 2018 is $1375 Canadian Dollars
