Hey bloggies! Can I just say that all of your sweet words last night and this morning have made this cookinfanatic’s frown turn upside down 🙂 For real, you peeps are the best!!! So thanks for being there for this gal!
I have a busy bee at the homestead today… thankfully I can work from home that has been great, lots to do and missing a day from work was NOT in the plan! (what was I thinking? haha) So that’s been this morning up until lunch break for some more pumpkiny goodness!
This soup makes me SO HAPPY!! I have to go get more this weekend, I am serious, don’t know how long my lovah World Market will have it for the fall season and I must have it again!
Served with a slice of farmer’s market pumpkin bread… which I had in the fridge bc I am weird and like certain types of bread (not like your everyday wheat, mostly sweet breads) when they are cold – does anyone else like their bread from the fridge/freezer and want to admit their crazy just like me?! 😉
I ate double this amount and killed the leftovers. Take that pumpkin soup, you didn’t stand a chance!
Since I made it with less than 1/2 of the called for “cream” and subbed in half & half, it only added 160 cals to the total 800 for the whole package. Split that into probably about 5-6 servings and you are looking at some decent stats for a hearty, creamy meal-worthy soup I think 🙂
Ok I must stop talking about the soup already haha.
I also had some roasted broccoli that I didn’t get to taste last night…. yum!!! Check out the supercute plate my mom picked up for me, isn’t it adorable? 🙂
Twas a delicious lunch… and I am so glad that it won’t be my last meal til 11pm like last night! (cross my fingers…)
I also threw some of the giant Tom Leonards chicken breasts into this guy
Had this stuff a while back and from I remember it was pretty freakin’ fantastic, we’ll see how it goes tonight!
Oh, and check out the ingredient list… pretty good right?
Plus it’s gluten-free — which I would have never even noticed before but now that I have certain bloggin’ friends who may be looking for gluten-free products it caught my eye! 🙂
Tonight’s menu also includes the golden beets I got at the farmer’s market, still debating on how to cook these up so it’ll be a surprise (to all of us haha!)
And get this peeps, check back tonight because there may or may not be a GIVEAWAY related to all this ExerciseTV talk!!!! 🙂
K peeps, gotta get back to work, which is pretty much nicer from the couch no lie 😉 however lots to do! See you superfab peeps tonight for a din recap!!!
