Spinach Soup

21 Apr

Yep, you read that correctly.  My family LOVES spinach.  The kids eat it.  That makes me feel like I’m doing a good job as a momma, not that I have anything to do on their preference of vegetables.  Wouldn’t that be a luxury?  Our friend, “Broadway Bob” sent me an email with soup recipes in it.  I saw this picture of bright green soup sitting in a very white bowl and thought, eeeewwww.  But when I read it was spinach soup I immediately decided it would be part of my St. Patrick’s Day menu.  Then life happened, and although it was slated in my menu plan, it never came to pass.  So it was slated on another week of my menu planning, and we ate it on Tuesday.  Yummmmm!  (and very easy)

New

9 Apr

This is the first post from my brand new computer.

So exciting!

I’m sitting on my couch right now.

That’s the real exciting part!

I’m still becoming aqcuainted with this new toy, but at 11pm on a Saturday night, I still wanted to sit and hear how my fingers sound as they hit these new purrty buttons.

Well, that, and I’m waiting tiredly for a load of laundry to dry.  Wait, scratch that.  That load is whites – which means socks.  We can wait for those tomorrow.

So, simply just checking in here.  And playing with my new toy.

Palm Springs was wonderful, as usual.

Sad the week is over.  There is a new week ahead.  My menu plan calendar is blank.  My cupboards, after being gone, are getting close to bare.  Sounds like  a new and busy week ahead.  But new is usually always good.  A clean fresh new start to something, right?

So, here’s to “new”. 🙂

(Oh, and it’s a MAC).  So, very new to me.  🙂
