On monday

...which was soup day, we decided that we were going to make soup as early as possible, so that we could spend our morning outside. I /we rushed and got everything out of the way and then we set out.  Well, soup day was interesting. We had a small group...
MB contributed carrots, JM brought German soup noodles, Z added okra, H added green beans and I added pieces of tilapia. 

If I didn't say it before, I will say it now. I love soup day because we never know what we are going to make. It's fun!
So after our fun adventure outside, we came back inside to settle down and cozy up to a warm bowl of soup and toast. Well, we were in for a surprise. Instead of leaving the stove on Low, I had it set on 3 - oh my! Our soup was (interesting :) It wasn't burnt, so I was able to save it, but it was funny. Multi-tasking is usually my thing...not this time.

Our meal was inspired by this recipe...I added carrots, okra and green beans :)
