It is the day where we link up with Jennifer and many more to share our “Currentlys” in our life. Some of this will be redundant, I am sure, but I will try to add some new information, too.
My new Soup Sunday! Kellyann recommended Leslie’s chili and it is good! Tom approved, too! It is a maple bourbon chili and you need to double the recipe. Tom asked for it and it was gone. I think next time (which is probably this Sunday) I will do a bit less maple syrup. Tom said not to, but you know…I’m the cook.
Then, this past Sunday, I did skinny lasagna soup. So good! I added spinach and zucchini.
What is your favorite soup recipe?
I am also enjoying my new clutch – it can be used year ’round, but I like the red and green for now, especially!
Funny Side Note: My Spanish 3 classes have to do demonstration speeches in Spanish this week. Examples are…how to drive, how to decorate a Christmas cookie, how to write an essay, etc. One girl is doing “How to Be Sra. Scott”. Some of her steps are: Buy a headband, Wear a sweater, Spend time with your college friends (Heather and Heather), Talk about Clothes Mentor (consignment shop), Sing songs, Make couples out of your students. Ouch! Now, remember we do get to know each other well by nature of learning a language. We talk about lots of different topics in Spanish! So, the above headband and sweater made me think maybe she’s right!
Again, this is from Prime Purchases yesterday and these are some of my recent gift purchases. Click on the red type and it will take you to my post and the direct links to look at these items. I am not trying to sell you anything and I get nothing when you click! Remember that this is a very amateur blog, ok?
Nothing! My above gifts went into gift bags with tissue paper. Do you call that wrapping? I do really love wrapping gifts but I’m not that good. My sister the art teacher makes the pretty wrapped gifts and does creative things like putting buttons on top of the gift instead of ribbons. My other sister the elementary teacher is also really good at wrapping. We once had a friend come to my parents’ house and say “those basic wrapped presents must be Amy’s”. Wow! I do a good job with what’s inside, KAREN!
Also, I wrap everything – almost everything that goes in our stockings, too. I even wrap a Chapstick. I leave some candy unwrapped. I know some families don’t wrap anything. Like…Santa gifts are just out in the open with no wrapping! I would never. Everything always got wrapped. I stand by my wrapping decisions.
For some snow! We had that crazy November 12th snow (photo below) that was so pretty but way too early. I would love a white Christmas.
Our Madrigal Dinner:
Jack’s guitar concert and Jack’s church choir affair.
What are you currently loving, gifting, hoping, wrapping, and attending?
