My timing is awful. I could blame the kids, as I usually do when I run late on things. I could say I was struggling because of Super Bowl Sunday. I could say it was all of the above that led to me posting a Meatless Monday recipe on a Tuesday yet again. Not to mention, yesterday was 51 degrees. Like, who wants to eat hot soup when the weather has a spike? I know for some of you 51 seems chilly. Us midwesterners were like, SPRING IS HEEEEEERE! Ah! The sun. It burns my eyes!!!
Well, not really. I have sunglasses. But you get the gist.
Even a little break in the winter chill is just enough to get you through the day. The kids were happy. I was happy because they played together and entertained themselves. It was good for a Monday.
Like I said before, this was supposed to be posted yesterday.
We spent the Super Bowl at a friends house. Andy decided this was a great day to not nap. Naturally. He also chose the perfect time to meltdown. Right during halftime. The only thing I really wanted to see! Ugh, kids. Then he was so exhausted he fell asleep in the car on the way home. Score!
He awoke right as we pulled in the driveway and then proceeded to explain to me that his trains had a lot of deliveries to make and he needed to go help them get to work. Dude? No. It is bedtime. Cue the 45 minute bedtime back and forth dance!
20 minutes of him arguing about trains and telling me he doesn’t want stories. Ok, you got it.
Close door and walk out.
Crying. “I need you to rock me. You’re mad at me.”
“I am not mad. I love you.” 20 minutes of rocking and talking. Two stories, because he changed his mind.
Close door. Goodnight for real.
9:30pm. Yeeeaaahhh, that blog post is gunna have to wait until tomorrow. Mama needs sleep.
Now that I am semi-well rested, here it is. The easiest, six ingredient soup. It all gets roasted on one pan in the oven. You cool it and add it to a blender. Done! Toss some croutons on top and, if you aren’t vegan, a sprinkle of parm. Good to go! I promise to try my best to stay on a three posts a week schedule for you guys!
