On my way home from work, the car thermostat read 5 degrees! I have spent the day and the evening dreaming of warm beaches and fruity drinks. I would love nothing more than to have my feet buried in hot sand, a good book on my lap, eating fresh guacamole, chips and salsa, with a cold cerveza somewhere. Instead, I am fixing soup.
I came home tonight and made up some Chicken and Dumpling soup from Tastefully Simple. I should tell you, I am not a Tastefully Simple consult (but I do know one). This soup was super easy to make and very taste. If I would have known, I would have made it sooner because it has been in my pantry for a while. My belly is comforted with every bite.
I also can't seem to get enough tea these days. Maybe it is in preparation for The Short Chics birthday party but I am CONSUMED with all things tea. Bagged tea, loose tea leaves, sugar cubes, and most of all tea cups. It probably makes no sense to anyone except me, but I just smile and feel good when I see a cute tea cup. Tonight, I am enjoying an Earl Grey in a pink ribboned tea cup from Portugal. My soul is comforted with every sip.
I am knee deep in preparations for The Short Chics birthday. I have decided to make fairy costumes for her and her guest. I have never seen so much tulle as I have in my living room right now. I had no idea how static it can have. I have the green tutu finished, the blue and half of the purple one cut out. Just envisioning these little girls wearing the costumes is keeping me cutting when I am sick of my scissors. (Each tutu takes nearly 12 yards of tulle.)
So, as I have finished my tea while I have written this blog, I now must get back to work.
|How sweet is this cup/saucer?? The Earl Grey was yummy. What are you brewing?|
