I'm sure that you are wondering how the cleaning and organizing is going and I would think you might assume that it's going great as I've not been stamping or posting…ahem…yeah, we can talk about that. I know it's been awhile as I had to retrieve my camera from the car where I put it to bring along and take some photos of Thanksgiving…(yeah, didn't do that either and now, because the camera has fogged up, you are getting a recipe today instead of a project.)
So back to the organizing…my lone victory was cleaning out the playroom in the basement. I just have the game cupboards to go but I will say it's looking good and I managed to clean out one basket in the office. I know, wipe the sweat from my brow! Should take a break and eat a little chocolate, right? Baby steps, my friends. I haven't conceded defeat just yet.
I had the last of my classes and events for the year this week. We had my Christmas Giftables class on Tuesday and Thursday and Friday was an open stamp day/night for my customers. They could come and work on their own projects or come and whip up a few little things here with some inspiration that they found in the "art room". I usually serve some soup and a little bread. It's a pretty casual affair but a good time to relax and create with my friends. And by request, I was asked to share my soup recipe. So here goes….(In the spirit of full disclosure, this recipe is my ALL-TIME favorite soup and I don't even LIKE tomato soup!) But I didn't have pesto on hand and wanted another easy version of Tomato Soup to warm our tummies in this ugly weather. I found this recipe on pinterest and because I didn't need to run to the store for anything, it was done in a Crockpot and it was easy…it became one my Customer and Hostess Haven Soups –
Tomato, Basil & Parmesan Soup Recipe.
