Surprise Visitor

I’m happy to report that I was able to successfully run 4.25 miles today on the treadmill! Smile Actually, I ran 2.0 miles, took a walking break, and ran 2.25 more.

I think this cold is on its way out the door. Woohoo!

By the time I got home, showered, and dressed, I was hungry and craving soup for breakfast! Since it was technically almost lunchtime, I went with my craving and made some delicious lentil soup.

I’m completely not a soup person, but I had a fierce craving and this hit.the.spot.

I’m also not a huge canned soup fan, but I LOVED this flavor! Plus it was only a buck. I should have stocked up.

It was supposed to be lentil and spinach, but I only saw a few spinach leaves in the can. So, I added a big ol’ handful of my own spinach when it was almost done cooking.

It wilted down perfectly once done, and I topped it all with some parmesan cheese.

And I made Shane a hot ham and cheese with some carrots.

After lunch, Shane and I tag teamed and cleaned the entire main floor in about an hour. Counters, rugs, wood floors, bathroom, tile floors, done and done.

A bit later, we got a surprise visitor!

Destiny was on her way back up to Chicago and took a pit stop in good old Normal to see us Smile Niko was very excited to see her two BFF’s.

Destiny just recently got engaged to her boyfriend (now fiance) Steve!! I am SO incredibly happy for her and cannot WAIT to start helping her plan.

Destiny and Steve are one of Shane and my absolute favorite couples. We always spend New Year’s Eve with them every single year!

Destiny also blessed Shane and I with the jar that keeps on giving…today at least.

Not sure how long it will last…

Cookie butter! Shane and I have been spoon dipping the entire day, so I went ahead and made some CB + celery to munch on while we watch the Bear’s game.

Are you a soup person? What’s your favorite kind?

  1. My husband and I are watching the Bears game right now too (ok, I’m sorta watching…)! He’s a HUGE fan.

    I go in phases with soup, but I would say my top favorites are split pea, minestrone, and creamy tomato.

  2. Im a soup freak! I could eat it every day!! Glad the run went well! I want that cookie butter!! My tjs doesnt have it yet

  3. I love soups, mainly homemade ones. Growing up I hated tomato soup and loved clam chowder and chicken noodle. Now my favorite is roasted butternut squash and tomato soup. Right now I probably make soup at least once a week.

  4. I love soup – especially in the cold weather. Homemade is my favorite, but I’m a fan of Progresso as well – especially the lentil!

    PS – Love the puppy pics! You know I have a weakness for dachshunds… :)

  5. I love that lentil soup!! Its so tasty-great idea adding more spinach to it! I’ll have to try that next time!

  6. Isn’t that cookie butter awesome?! I’ve put it on pancakes two mornings in a row now. It gets all melty and I’m pretty sure that’s what heaven’s gotta be like. :) Glad you’re feeling better!

  7. I’m a total soup snob! I love homemade soup and very rarely buy canned. Although dressed up with spinach and cheese may have done it for me…

    I was at Trader Joes yesterday and in the checkout line these two guys behind me were RAVING about the cookie butter. It was hilarious! It looks pretty darn good, though :)

  8. I just bought a can of lentil soup today to take to work with me sometime this week. Love that flavor!

    I also made a special trip to TJ’s today specifically to get that cookie butter and they didn’t carry it yet. I can’t wait to get it and am glad to hear that it’s so good!

  9. I just bought that darn stuff from TJs. I’m too scared to open it. LOL. It would NOT last long here. :)
