We're Going To The Circus

Tonight we are going to the circus! The Ringling Brother's and Barnum&Bailey are in town and I am so excited.. it's my first circus as well as D and M's first circus.. and I am waiting to see my boy's eyes widen and face light up in awe and here him say 'wow' so they better not disappoint. While I wish it would transport me to the days of Water for Elephants (not the movie) but it's the middle of a still very cold winter and we'll be inside a stadium.. :(

Ignore my negativity.. lets go to the circus!

Soup for the Sick

Last weekend I had a sick husband on my hands... a sick husband who was living on soups. Instead of making a huge pot of one kind of soup and living on it (which M would hate) I took this as an opportunity to make soups.. hearty enough to fill me sick man's stomach and mine too..

The first is my favorite and one of my go to soups.. it is Sunny Anderson's Roasted Tomato Soup. This soup is rich, hearty and absolutely delicious. I add a green pepper to for an extra kick.


My second soup of the weekend was a Southern Chicken Corn Chowder. First time making this one and it was another winner.. i omitted the bacon bits and M and I are not a fan of celery.. but next I think I'd add a second jalapeno or a dash a paprika. We like a kick :)


Soup number three is another favorite in our house.. Black Bean Tortilla Soup. I add a small can of corn and a spoon full of salsa to the mix. Sometimes even half a chicken breast depending on how hearty I want the soup to be.  Mmm so good and easy too.


Our last soup of the weekend was a Classic Beef Noodle Soup. This was a slightly less easy soup to make and I was missing a few ingredients.. I had no idea what a Thai bird chili was or chili bean sauce. I used regular lite soya sauce instead of dark and used wheat spaghetti instead of udon noodles. I added a handful of bean sprouts. The result while good was just a tad salty.. but the bigger problem was that it was just too difficult to eat..


What is your favorite soup to make? I am a soup lover and always looking to try new ones.

Candles and Hearts

Some pictures from our birthday/valentines celebration.. and a little storm called Nemo (which stopped any and all weekend birthday celebrations : ( plus D was sick.. double sad face)


my first attempt at cake pops.. I have made them before.. but never frosted, decorated and put them on sticks before..


and I got shoes for my birthday :)



For Valentine's Day a group of us mom (who have mainly only interacted online in a local parenting group) decided it would be fun to have our kids mail each other Valentine's.. D and I got together to make this heart crown and we received and still are receiving so much cute mail.


Then came Valentine's Day and M went down with the flu.. and romance died so I baked shortbread.



and D crafted some heart melting cuteness at school.. 





I had saved some of the cake pops I had made the week before, the less than round and perfect ones and upcycled them. Whipped some whipped cream with peanut butter and topped with chocolate sauce. The perfect concoction.




Even with all the fevers and phlegm.. it was not all bad.. and a lot of good. Cuddles and snuggles and lazy days spent in pj's.
