Trying out a new recipe

Hey there!

Hope you are enjoying the spring weather today!  I have a few windows open just enough to get some fresh air in...without freezing the baby.  

My 2 girls have been at grandma and grandpa's for two days and I spent yesterday running around town getting errands done.  Today I rested a bit and then decided I would finally try out that new recipe I've been wanting to try for a while.  So off to the grocery store I went.  I also picked up a Starbucks frappuccino to enjoy since it was such a nice day out.  Man was it GOOD!!!

Now, trying a new recipe may seem like nothing...but I just don't do that often.  I once heard that cooking is either a hobby and you love it...or a chore and you put it off.  I tend to think of it as a chore and dread it.  But that spring weather out there has got me hopping...and my girls and the grandparents will be home in time for dinner.  So this is a bit exciting for me!  I got the recipe from the show 'Best Recipes Ever' and it's a turkey meatball soup served with a green onion quick bread.  I'll throw a poppyseed salad together to go with this.  So, the bread is cooking and everything is chopped up and ready to go for the soup once everyone is here so it's hot and ready when served. 

Now..something you need to know about me cubicle buddy....something always goes wrong.  Ask me about the night before my wedding sometime!  So this new recipe could be an adventure.  I have to think of it that way right?  Instead of as a disaster...and hey...we can always order in pizza if it's terrible....

So...wish me luck and cross your fingers that it tastes good!  Now I better go find the thyme.....


  1. No, no... you should ask your readers to ask ME about the night before your wedding! ha, ha. If the recipe is good, will you post it? Always looking to shake things up at our house! Good luck!
