go. now.

As in, "Now. Go make this. Now."

I think I mentioned that I was going to try a new soup from my Barefoot in Paris cookbook this week. Well, I did. And you must make this. For dinner. Tonight. Go to the grocery store, buy the ingredients, and get cooking because it was that good. Lentil Sausage Soup. It was so delicious, and it made the house smell so delicious, and I can barely even talk about it. Here's a link.

I will tell you that I didn't use leeks because there weren't any to be found at the grocery, I forgot to add the cumin, and I used Healthy Choice sausage. I added about an extra cup of onion to make up for the leeks. I'm not sure that the cumin would've added much to the soup...or real sausage for that matter because, I'm telling you, it was so good. In fact, I think I'll go heat up a bowl right now for lunch.

Other than the soup, the P family had a pretty productive weekend. We cleaned up the garden and added a little red fence around it to deter Otis from stomping through it. M also mowed and trimmed at our house and his daddy's. Then I repainted the trim on the front porch, but I never made it to painting the garage door. I'm hoping to get that done this week. It's loads of fun around here, people. Loads. Of course, we had to stay busy to keep our minds off the shellacking that Notre Dame and Tennessee took this weekend at the hands of Michigan and Florida. There are no words to express how devastating it was. At least the Colts won...and UK beat Louisville, which was cool, and it looks like M will win at Fantasy Football this week, which is a whole different breed of excitement.

I'm off peeps. Have a fantastic Monday. And enjoy the crazy colorful pic of S...just ignore the crusted mucus. We're still working on it.

Wow, y'all are productive! I'll have The Husband check out the recipe and see if he'll try it. And I love S's hat...and onesie! Do I detect and orange version of my Baby Girl's onesie from Aunt Ouiser?

I'm going to have to get an elephant hat soon, or I may become physically violent.
And S is the adorable-est!

You can't even see the crusty mucus, just a beautiful happy little person with what appear to be two baby teeth. Precious!
