So...I guess we're not done with soup season yet. I love soup, I just also love fresh fruits and veggies and barbecues. I suppose there's a time for everything.
This particular soup is made with dietary restrictions in mind. Austin's got a lot of allergies so I'm somewhat used to cooking while keeping accommodations in mind, but when I cook for Austin's parents, now I have to also think about the amount of sodium I use.

Normal people don't have to work; that's the first major bonus. Sundays are not as assuming. You're not really expected to get a lot done on a Sunday. Not like Saturdays. Sunday is the prime day for a brunch with friends or family. It's also a good option for strolls. Not hikes or power walks, but strolls.

I'm on the other end of the spectrum. I'm not picky at all. However, I will say that I recently had a bad pie! I guess if this was the only pie experience I'd ever had, I'd be tempted to say, "I don't like pie," too.
Some flavor combinations are best not experimented with. Pineapple cherry pie with a sweet crumble topping is one of them. It was overwhelmingly sweet! Like, inedible sweet.

I need some inspiration, I guess.
If you have a favorite egg salad recipe, use that, I've added mine after the break. Happy Easter!

Whatever the reason, I always thought that their thick fur would have the same texture of angel food cake. For that reason, I call it buffalo cake (re: weirdo).
Angel food cake would be a perfect spring dessert to have after your Easter dinner this Sunday. I ain't sayin', I'm just sayin'.

My sister was particularly upset because "all we ate was toast!" Obviously, that's a little bit of an exaggeration, but in truth it wasn't that much of a stretch. I bet we went through a loaf of bread every other day. My carb-loving started at a young age so I loved it. Darcie didn't.
When you combine cinnamon sugar toast and pudding, you get quite the case of nostalgia. For me, anyway.

Problem is, we usually just eat them sitting in front of the couch. Really, I think we only packed them with us on a ride once or twice, so I'm sure that defeats the purpose.
My point is, you can eat these whenever you want, wherever you want. I won't judge you. And the best part is that you don't have to be starving and hot and sweating for these to taste good!

Problem is, I really don't like the taste of it. Sitting down with a big bowl of the dark green, leafy, peppery stuff just doesn't appeal to me at all.

You'd think that a food blogger would really be looking forward to this part of the wedding planning, but it was so hard! Sure, I love kitchen gadgets and cute dishes, BUT I also have a lot of kitchen gadgets and dishes.
I mean, I even have a bread maker! I mean, really, what more can we ask for?

I've had to dress up, interview for jobs, and set up a wedding registry. All of which are apparently totally exhaustive activities. Oh yeah, I also had to go bathing suit shopping. Not fun.
Austin and I have been mixing up the fruity drinks lately despite the snow coming down outside to get ourselves excited and also to figure out which ones are keepers and which ones don't need to be shared and if I'm sharing it here, it's a keeper!
