I don't claim to be the best homemaker or cook - but every once in a while I get a "thing" and I just have to make somethin... it struck twice this week!
Homemade ginger snaps (or ginger "softs" as we call them because no one in my house likes them crunchy - they like them soft)... that the Colton-man and I made yesterday.
And today... HOMEMADE (from scratch) Wild Rice Soup!!!
I took this:
(and I didn't add the "dry sherry" in case you can actually read this)
And turned it into this:
It doesn't look the best here - because this is just out of the fridge in the tupperware... it looked MUCH nummier in the pot!
This is my SECOND time making soup from scratch (on Sunday I made a Tomato Bisque that was also NUMMY!!) in my ENTIRE marriage (or life, for that matter) and it feels so empowering!
I'm not sure why - it just makes you feel like a "real" woman to take miscellaneous ingredients in your kitchen and make them into this fantastic tasting meal! :)
Now you all know what a dork I really am - I get excited about making a meal that tastes good and didn't burn to the pan! :)
