Goat Cheese Tomato Soup (with a Grilled Cheese)

Soups, Uncategorized

A couple things on this lovely day:

1. Wrapping cylinder objects is super annoying. Like, how am I supposed to wrap the bottoms and the tops, and it still be somewhat presentable?!

2. Yesterday, as I was standing in line at the post office, I realized no one really understands the whole priority, express, confirmation slip, tracking number deal–it’s confusing. Too many options, man. And I have to say, the women at the post office are incredibly patient with people. They just sit there and explain the rules OVER and OVER and OVER. And people are still confused. I feel like this needs to be taught to us in schools.

3. Last night, as I was getting ready to head out, I went to go flat iron my bangs, didn’t realize the setting was on 450˙ and burned a good piece of my bangs. Just straight fried a chunk of hair off. Yeah. That happened. So, if you see me in the next few weeks, I might be doing a little bang pinning to the side action.

4. When it’s freezing out all I want is soup. I want to ingest heat. I think I particularly like drinking heat. That’s where this soup comes in…

Pancetta, Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Tart

Appetizers


Tomorrow! Big day! Are you stressed yet? Are you skipping washing dishes and going out to eat instead? I’ve done this a few times. I ain’t mad at you. I get it. I do.

Are you in another country and totally sick of Thanksgiving talk? I feel you…don’t worry, it’s almost over.

Today is all about prep.

This means sweats, music blasting, warm socks, turkey brining in a gigantic paint bucket, pie making…kinda fun! Kinda stressful.

You need a snack…

Butternut Squash Kale Salad with Brown Butter Dressing

Dinner, Salads

It’s Wednesday. I’m all sorts of sleepy. I have a huge to-do list. Yet my brain keeps replaying how Teresa (from RH of New Jersey) pronounces “cumin” and says “ingredient-enses.” Wish I could get that out of my head. For real.

I’m also looking at my google reader and obsessing over my new blog addition. No. No. It’s not a new fashion or food blog or lifestyle blog. I want to share it. It’s major. Just kiss your whole morning productivity away because you’re in for it.

Wait. Hold on. I have to say something before I share my new obsession. The disclaimer is this: Of course I would never hurt an animal, and yes, I’ve had a hurt animal before and my heart cried. Literally. But holy geez…is this cute.

It’s a tumblr called…wait for it…wait for it…Animals with Casts. OMG! OMG! OMG!

I imagine you right now clicking over and saying outloud, “OMG! Look at that dude. He’s hurt…he’s gotta cast…it’s pink(?)…someone signed it(?)…and it’s all so…so…CUUUUTE!”

It’s just a gigantic damaged animal cute-fest. It’s crazy. All I want to do is reach through the screen, smother them, console them and make them homemade dog and cat treats. UGH!

And dog soup. I’ve been thinking how I can make dog soup a thing for weeks. What do we think? Beef broth, butternut squash puree, pieces of beef jerky, more veggies. I swear I’m making this happen.
