Soup Sweat

by Meghann on October 4, 2012

Tonight’s dinner was a twist on last month’s Sweet Potato and Bacon Soup.

Only I…

  • switched out the bacon for chicken sausage (all gone now!)

Who watched tonight’s episode of Glee?! I’m really digging the new season so far, I wasn’t sure where they would go with the show after the majority of the cast graduated, but I think the changes were exactly what the show needed to keep everything fresh.

After the episode, I had to watch Blaine’s original rendition of Teenage Dream.

Doesn’t that just make you heart break even more? Sigh.

Good night!
