Soups On!

I've been on a soup kick lately.

I've made Chicken Taco Soup....twice.

I've made homemade chicken noodle soup...twice.

I've made hamburger veggie soup.

Soup. Soup. Soup!

Yesterday I made my second batch of chicken noodle soup this month, its pretty good. I had it for lunch yesterday. I had it for dinner yesterday. I'm eating it now for breakfast too! Yes, I know I'm weird...I just wasn't in the mood for breakfast foods. Chances are I'll have it for lunch as well.

Tonight's dinner though is different. Fridays are my splurge nights. After I take Kelsey to her dads, the younger girls & I treat ourselves to McD's on the way home. Yeah, its naughty, and bad for me...but it makes me happy, and once a week isn't going to kill me...might explain why the weight isn't coming off super fast but oh well lol.

Do you have any good, easy soup recipes you can share with me? I could use some more.

Yesterday I also made something else...brownies. They aren't for me, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it lol.) Jilly's class is having a party today and she signed me up to bring brownies. Being a nice mom, I made some, and jazzed them up a tad.


They look so good. I made this picture my desktop picture.

Last night was the meeting for the Relay For Life. We have our team all signed up. Kelsey picked the name Forever Fighters, but she might be changing it if she can. I personally hate that name, to boring... I like something with more character and coolness. :) I'm having a little bit of trouble setting up my 2 different Relay web pages, they seem to be going together, instead of being separate...gotta figure out how to fix the problem. Once I do, be prepared, I'm gonna mention them in hopes of getting some donations! :P Its for a good cause, something near and dear to me, I've seen to many friends & family suffer from cancer, research needs to be done, a cure needs to be found.

Anyone got any home remedies for coughing? I'm so sick of coughing, sick of the girls coughing too! I'm also sick of puke that comes when a little one coughs to hard. Jilly & I have been using Delsym, but its not doing crap for us. Bree isn't supposed to take over the counter medicines. My other kids did and were fine, but things have changed apparently and they don't want kids under 6 taking them, supposedly all dangerous now. I did get her some natural cough syrup made just for toddlers last night...doesn't seem to do a whole heck of a lot though.

I hope you all have a great Friday & weekend.

QOTD: Do you ever eat odd things for breakfast?

When my throat hurts and I'm coughing - I use warm milk and honey. It always helps curb the cough for a while.

I just am an old foggie that like her peaches and cream oatmeal with 6 packets of coffee creamer (shut up) and on the weekends cold cereal. I'm a goon.

hmmm, I'll thy thinking up another soup recipe.

I'm very bad and seldom eat breakfast. I eat a lunch and dinner-but it's always coffee for breakfast.
I've been wanting to make soup lately! I don't think I have an easy recipe-I'll have to look!
