Taking Back My Twenties

Soup’s On

Posted on Oct 15, 2012 | 4 comments

Gloomy, rainy days sure go well with Mondays. But at least something exciting happens this week!

I had a training that started a little later this morning, so I knocked out a workout at the Y. It was great because after work I definitely didn’t want to go out in the rain. The afternoon kind of dragged on, and so I was quite excited to get to go home to complete free time. I made by first batch of pumpkin oats for tomorrow’s breakfast. I tried to delay opening a can as long as possible, because last year, I was hooked on pumpkin oats until MAY!

And I made soup. I bought some chicken drumsticks and went ahead and boiled the chicken for shredding, so it would be all ready to go into this mix by dinner time. I can’t remember exactly where I got this – maybe a Great Harvest Bakery gift from my mom?


Anyway, it was super quick and made a ton of soup for the week. And I loved how chunky it was with all that chicken.


I think our little party at the lake made me extra tired today – who gets sleepy at 7 pm?

I’ve noticed that since living in Atlanta this summer (where I had no cable or basic/local channels), I’m much less interested in TV at night. Part of this is just because I find the internet more stimulating and staring at the TV has actually become boring. Sometimes I do wish I could just settle down and enjoy a show without any distractions – I do find it more relaxing than being on the internet because it’s less interactive. But the most relaxing night time activity for me is reading. I rarely make it through more than a chapter, but I know it helps me unwind and get sleepy. To the point that I never finish any books! But, I am planning to get in bed and finish my book right this minute. I’m looking forward to starting a new one – maybe State of Wonder? Not sure what it’s about, but it’s been on my side table for a while.

    Frontier Soups also has an amazing Thai peanut soup. You add chickenbroth, peanut butter and chicken pieces if desired. My favorite on any day.

    Yup that’s from us! You just needed some rolls to go with it!
