A Week Off

Yep - I took the week off! I can't believe it! Yesterday we did a little Christmas shopping in Vicksburg and Jackson. Today, I cook and bake! I am planning to bake Alicia's Oatmeal Bread. Then, I am making three batches of soup to freeze for winter suppers. A Tomato and Leek soup. A Split-Pea, Sweet Potato, and Kale soup. And a Chickpea and Kale soup. I picked out the kale recipes because I have mounds of mustard greens from my mother-in-law's garden that I am subbing for the kale. Yay! This is going to be a fun day!

There wasn't much relaxing going on at my house today. I cooked from 9am to 7pm -- and loved every minute of it! My soups are freezing now, and tonight I made a mini-Thanksgiving dinner for just Chip and me.

I will try to relax tomorrow, I promise.

Yep, all that cooking doesn't necessarily mean much relaxation time!

Lisa, would you mind shooting me an email? I couldn't find your email address on your blog and I have something to ask you that you might be interested in. My email address is:
