Tonight I'm planning on making a potato/sausage soup. It's a knockoff of Olive Garden's Zupa Tuscana. I'm still deciding if I want to do garlic bread or not. Tomorrow night is going to be shredded pork fajitas with pico de gallo and guacamole, and cilantro lime rice
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz

I used a food processor and everything was straight out of the fridge, I even chilled it after I made it.  The problem was it fell apart really easily when I rolled it and didn't go into the deep dish as easily as I'd hoped.  I had visions of it sinking in beautifully like on TV but instead I ended up putting the bottom in separately and patchworking the sides.

We call this the "rustic" look at my house - never seems to affect the flavor at all! I've made many rustic pies in my lifetime....

Tonight we are having home made vegetable soup and bread.  Yummy warm meal for a snowy day. :)

Today (at least in the US) is National Homemade Soup day.

I made creamy asparagus soup. So good! Fiance was, in his words, "freaking out" about how good it was.

Wasa sesame crackers on the side.

Well, I think we're going to need your recipe for this soup then.

Cheesecake Factory!
Bluecheese BLT burger, Fries , and a a table we got 4 slices of their cheesecake to share...
Mango Key Lime,...30th anniversary chocolate layer.... Deluxe Oreo... and Red Velvet cheesecake.

All were delicious, but IMO the red velvet was by far the best

Last night, I roasted a pork loin roast with vegetables while dinner was cooking. However, I want BLT sandwiches tonight, so that is what I am having with soup. Rice pudding with cinnamon and raisins for dessert.

Last night it was homemade turkey tetrazzini with a spinach/strawberry/balsamic salad.

Tonight, I have no idea because my mom is visiting and has promised to make dinner! Whatever she makes, I will be very happy. :)
