Sunday Supper

After a week of eating off of Pumpkin Stew and then our Halloween chili, I was ready for a light and healthy dinner this week.  However, H came down with what S had all week (though not as severe) and the hubby woke up sick as a dog Saturday as well.  So - after all three of them pitifully lounged around the house on what was a gorgeous Carolina weekend, soup was the winner for last night's Sunday supper. 

I opted for Creamy Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons.  The recipe is from the Barefoot Contessa's Foolproof cookbook.  If you don't have this cookbook, you owe it to your family to go get it today.  It totally lives up to the name - foolproof.  And what is better than a bowl full of yummy goodness when you are sick?  I will say I prefer her roasted tomato soup from her original Barefoot Contessa cookbook - but this is version is less involved and also very delicious. You can't go wrong with any of her recipes.

Since my weekend plans were cancelled in order to play Nurse Mommy, I took advantage of the time to take down the Halloween decorations and get ready for Thanksgiving.

The sideboard got a Thanksgiving makeover

I've opted to put the pads on my table since grubby hands seem to LOVE it and it also became "The Island of Sodor" over the weekend (for all you Thomas mommy's out there).  As much as I would love to see my Grandmother again, it certainly won't be for her coming back from the grave to snatch me baldheaded for allowing trains to be run across the table!!!  I need to find a cute tablecloth as the only one I have is her linen cloth that I use on holidays.  Not a good everyday choice.

And speaking of Thanksgiving, Marty at A Stroll Through Life will be hosting a week's worth of creating fall vignette's next week.  You don't want to miss out so mark your calendar today and hop on over there November 8-12. 

Have a happy & HEALTHY week!

  1. It looks so pretty!! I need a new tablecloth too. We watched a lot of Thomas this weekend since my daughter is sick. I love the grilled cheese crouton idea. I have that book, but haven't tried this recipe yet. Will do though!
