Here we are the last Monday in November and right before Thanksgiving in the US. Where did that year go???
I thought today I would bring you a nice soup again. One of my favorites is Cream of Mushroom Soup. I upped this one with lots of different kinds of mushrooms and lightened it up with homo milk instead of heavy cream.
A soup packed full of flavor that you will want to make again and again. Enjoy this on a cold fall day or have a small cup before your Thanksgiving meal. It is a nice change from all the pumpkin and squash soups that are around. ENJOY!!!

Here it is another Monday and low and behold we have snow again on the ground. Also it is coooooold, brr!! I will be heading back to bed today to try and fight the worst cold and laryngitis I have had to date. Almost two weeks of this, ARG!! I have so much to show you and so much to do. It will all happen though, it always does.
So I was looking back through the archives and came across these magnificent Scalloped Sweet Potato/Potatoes. A dish that I made last year for The Mustard Seed. Something I do every November. It is our local shelter and in a small way it is us giving back.
These potatoes are great for this time of year and make an excellent side for Thanksgiving of any special dinner. Click HERE for the recipe!!! ENJOY!!
We are scarily creeping closer to Halloween. I am kind of bummed this year to not be doing a Halloween party, this is always our big time of year and it is so much fun. Tons of work but loads of laughs too! With recently moving there was no way we could pull it off. I have to admit my house is pretty darn scary as it is, with renovations in full steam ahead I don’t need decorations to add to the fright that is our home. Oh well, it is for a short time and we will get things back to normal I hope soon.
So we will celebrate last years scary recipes, today and next Monday, to help celebrate the season. Today I bring you these very scary Zombie Cupcakes. I made these last year from a kit that I was given as a gift. Have a look around your local stores and see what you can come up with. I also added in my little set of zombie people, call me crazy, many do but I love this little creepy set of zombies. I miss not putting them out so I have enjoyed looking back at this picture.
Get your Halloween on!! Happy Hauntings!!
What a great Thanksgiving weekend we are having!! Such a wonderful feast at our friends last night and oh, how I ate too much!! Hard not to when everything was so delicious. Thank you so much to the Levesque family for hosting Thanksgiving this year, we so appreciate it.
With all that wonderful rich and decadent food that we had last night I wanted to show something from last year that is a bit lighter. Also, so easy to make and so impressive looking!! These little oranges are just hollowed out, frozen and filled with orange sorbet and placed back into the freezer to be waiting for you when you are ready to serve.
I first found this idea in a book called The Last Dinner on The Titanic. I hope you like looking back at this post today. ENJOY!!

I had a little pole on Facebook to see what people were interested in me making. The overwhelming response was casseroles and soups. I will be doing 5 days of casseroles coming up soon and a scattering of soups here and there. That got me to be thinking of soups here today. How I love them and their combinations are endless. Fall is the best time to start to add some delicious soups into your meals. So today I give you three soups from this time last year. Hope you find them all Mouth Watering. ENJOY!!!
First up is Slow Cooker Beef and Barley Soup, stick to your ribs goodness!
Next is one of my favs, Spicy Hearty Tortilla Soup, yet this one is low in calories too!!
Lastly, I would like to share again this yummy Fresh Tomato Basil Soup, you can make it as spicy as you like!!
