So. Much. Fun.

Probably the first weekend in a while where I’m feeling well rested and ready to take on the week. It was the perfect mix of being lazy and getting out there – the way all long weekends should be. :)

Derek and I emphasized the lazy theme this afternoon with a few hours in front of the tv. A trip to the grocery store was thrown in there as well. I picked up some lovely fresh figs (figs! in season! yippee!!), ricotta cheese, chocolate chunks, and honey.



Derek requested soup for dinner. Soup was delivered.


Nothing fancy here. Basically just threw everything in a pot and let it simmer for an hour.

Soup contents:

  • red onion
  • carrot
  • okra
  • tomato sauce
  • red beans
  • diced tomatoes
  • vegetable broth
  • garlic salt
  • oregano
  • chili powder

On top:

  • avocado
  • cheddar cheese


Fresh avocado is awesome on hot soup. It cools everything down and leads to some creamy, yummy bites.


I’ve had soup on my mind lately. So happy soup season is back.

The vanilla ice cream and Dancing Deer fruit and nut bars came out for dessert.


The perfect little dish to end the weekend with.

How was your Labor Day weekend?! Do anything exciting?!
