Mushroom Soup

Mushroom Soup

Life throws us curve balls once in a while. Last week I failed to catch mine. I was forced to be unplugged as I was without internet service for days. Boy do I have a lot to catch up on.  I missed you all. ♥  Then I found out I was one of the millions that was a victim of the target store hack. Ugh…. life will always throw us curve balls. Some we catch and some we may miss. But either way we must move forward….and that is just what I do.  I am happy to be back online and sharing with you again this week. Did you know it is national soup month? We have had plenty of snow and cold weather here so I have been making soups often. I know some of you are living in states that surely resemble the North Pole.  So soup is a great way to warm up. Today I am sharing my mushroom soup. You can find more of my soup recipes in the vegetable recipe section.

This is going to be hard to believe…. but the original winner of the Pocketful of Cash giveaway did not claim their prize. A new winner was selected. Please join me in congratulating Anna from This Thing Called Life.

    Oh, Yum.
    Hubby wouldn’t eat it only because it doesn’t have any meat in it. He is a meat eater but then it’s that much more for me to eat. :} His loss, my gain :}
