Miscellany Monday

Today I'm posting Carissa style from Lower Case Letters for the Miscellany Monday Blog Link up.

1.  No bad news on Fridays!
The weekend started with some bad news this past Friday, what's up with that?  It's supposed to be TGIF.  Oh well, we're hoping God will spin some good out of it.
Time will tell, we have faith.

2.  Sweet Nothings
My 5 year old says "Mom, I love you more than
an 8-legged octopus".  
Well, I guess I'll take that as a compliment.

3.  No gourmet here
Grandpa and Nona (Sprigs of Rosemary) came for a visit on Sunday since they couldn't make it to the boys' birthday party.  We were planning on having Bacon Ranch Burgers and potato skins, respectable right?
Well we discovered our potatoes weren't in the best shape just as we began to prepare them so we moved to plan B - lounge fries (a local hit at the Lounge or Clubhouse of fries smothered in bacon, cheese, and ranch dressing).  So I took out the frozen bag of french fries and realized that instead of getting french fries the last time I was at the store, I got tater tots.
So we had burgers and tots...you can't feed a foodie tater tots!...how embarrassing.  

4. Beadworks Buzz
Now that the boys' birthday party is over, I can refocus back on my home showing.  The invites go out this week.  I've come to realize I will have to have more than one. Not that that's a bad thing :)  There too many people to invite and my home is only so big.  I don't want people tripping over each other so I think I'll go for a few smaller gatherings.  New business cards should arrive next week.  And I'm finishing up some last new designs and my raffle piece.  I promise to post some sneak peeks soon.

5. Anytime soup
I made one of my favorite soups this weekend called Mediterranean Soup.  I haven't made it in years.  My husband calls it stinky soup, I think he just can't comprehend having cinnamon in soup.
Cinnamon does NOT stink.  
Anyway here's the recipe....it's delicious!

Saute these items
3-4 diced garlic cloves
1 cup diced onion
2 tsp Olive Oil

Add: 1-1/2" cups water
1 (16oz) can of chicken broth
1 (14-1/2oz) can of diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp of ground cumin
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 TBSP chopped parsley

Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 min.

Add: 1 (15oz) can chick peas
1/4 cup Ditalina Pasta (or other small pasta)

Simmer 9 minutes and then serve!
