It was Monday afternoon. I had no fresh meat or vegetables. It was too late to thaw meat. Husband called and said he would be home at seven and was STARVING. Hmm. Pantry? If you have canned beans and tomatoes on hand, and you can always make a homemade dinner.
An easy, comforting, slightly spicy, delectably savory, hits-the-spot kind of soup. It has meat, grains, veggies and dairy all in one bowl, which is always my favorite kind of meal. Serve with a big ol’ crust of grainy bread and you’ve got a soul-warming dinner.
I feel like as soon as the temp. drops below 60, my daughter’s nose starts running. It’s gross. I find myself wiping snot off her face and onto my clothes just like I saw moms do when I was younger and swore I’d never replicate. Awesome.
If you’re a new cook and want to feel good about your skills, make soup. If you want to impress people into thinking you’re a way better cook than you are, make pureed soup—and garnish it with something. Garnish is super fancy.
Do you feel enormous? Because I do. Too many eating out opportunities and too many COOKIES. I feel puffy.

How many pieces of pie have you eaten in the past two days? I have eaten three. That means I’ve eaten almost a whole day’s worth of calories in the past two days, JUST FROM PIE. Cue the lentils.
