Fake it Till You Make it Soup

Happy Tuesday!  Monday was a blur with being back in the office after several days away and just trying to get back into the daily grind.  I was starting to feel sick and all I wanted when I got home was some soup!  One little problem- I don't make soup.  I mean, I do- but it doesn't ever taste as good as my mom's. 

I remembered the fabulous quick soup Abby made and scrounged through our fridge and found the following:
  • Veggie broth
  • Mini red bell peppers
  • Red onion
  • Carrots
  • Spinach
  • French green beans
I put the broth on the stove in a large pot and threw in all the veggies except for the spinach- which I added at the very end.  I also added an insane amount of paprika, cumin, and tabasco for an added kick.

It was easy, healthy and fast- perfect for a Monday night.  I went to sleep early and I may have kicked this cold already!

My bud Mari from Namestemari.blogspot.com was kind enough to present me with the Honest Scrap Award!  I think this is my first blog award and I'm so excited!!

As part of the award, I have to tell you 10 honest things about myself:

1. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up
2. I am very absent-minded and forget everything all the time
3. I have a new unhealthy obsession with Tabasco
4. I've always battled against my curly hair and finally just let it be
5. I almost always pick my menu item ahead of time at restaurants if I can get a hold of the menu
6. I quit Splenda and miss it dearly but know it's bad for me
7. I get angry and pissy if I don't get in regular workouts
8. I have a problem with starting and not finishing projects
9. I am a huge procrastinator and am convinced it works
10. I still have a fat kid complex and have to remind myself I'm no longer that awkward Middle School kid.

Now I pick the following ladies:


Here are the rules:
1. Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design
2. Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving the award.
3. Share "10 Honest Things" about myself.

Have a lovely Monday!
