more soup days please

i made wedding soup and it was wonderful. i sauteed onions, garlic and herbs. added chicken stock....once it was boiling i added small meatballs...yes meatballs (lean ground beef, lemon pepper, garlic salt, bread crumbs, splash of worshire, rolled in about 1 inch balls)....and also added lots of fresh spinach, sliced carrots, and about 1/2 cup uncooked orzo....yes orzo.

and i did want to marry the soup.

good soup on a chilly fall day makes me feel exactly like this:

(i almost can't handle the tiny spots on that kitten belly. they make me want to cry)

i am pretending that is not warm out. if i stay in the kitchen and don't go outside i am safe. i really don't want it to sunny anymore. i want cold. i want rain. i want dark clouds. i want hats and scarves and boots.

i WILL learn to knit. this is not an option. this will not stay in the pile of things i want to learn but never get around to.....with juggling, riding a bike with no hands, making own pickles, making soap, lotion and/or candles, walking on hands, photoshop, harmonica.....and the list goes on. but...i will learn to knit this fall. and i will give at least one person a knit gift for christmas. so i better get on it.
