Peppermint & Broccoli

soup du jour

Okay, so I have to be honest... I can't paint the dinning room yet. We are project people around here and there are too many other projects in mid-project-ness to start a new one. Namely the half finished metal cabinet project, and the replacement of our wood burning stove. The later of the two is a big job! More on that later, when it is finished though.

Anywho... today I am determined not to be antsy or bored. I am wearing my hair down too, that way I won't get that I-think-my-ponytail-is-pulled-too-tight feeling either. I am working on being okay with a slower pace and so far, today, I like it.

There are two things that I live off of in the winter and they are probably the least likely bed-fellows. Peppermint Mochas from Starbucks and Cream of Broccoli Soup. LOL... weird combo, I know. But it isn't like I am slurping them at the same time!! Today while running errands this morning, I treated myself to my first Grande Peppermint Mocha of the season. Oh how I missed you my sweet peppermint. And when I got home from my errands, I started a pot of soup. Yes, I make it from scratch, and no, I can't mail you any. Truly, can you think of anything better then soup and bread on a dreary, cold, Fall evening. It.Is.The.Best.

Today has been such a good day.

I am a 'from' scratch person. My sister IS NOT! I always laugh when she makes things, I squeal in delight! I always tell her "I DIDN"T KNOW THAT CAME IN A BOX/CAN, etc". HAHA

Funny, Dr Oz talked about eating broccoli on his show today! Would you share your recipe?

Looking forward to seeing what you do to the round robin necklaces...

Bon appetit!

Oohh...I love fall/winter for the all the great meals that I miss during the summer. And cream of broccoli is one of my fav's to but I'd have to pass on the peppermint...

Glad the day has been good and that you have allowed the slower pace of nature affect your pace. Enjoy your soup and bread. It sounds wonderful!

Hey Kerry
Could you send some of that relaxation my way?? :-) I wish I had a moment to feel bored! That's why I never get a chance to call..we need to catch up!
I wish I was drinking coffee again because I saw that pumpkin spice latte available again at Starbucks! Yum.. Your soup looks amazing!
