Wow! Today I looked and I saw that I had 3 comments to my first blog post. How exciting! I think this is actually going to be fun. I used to keep a personal diary, but that has since faded in the last few (okay, more like 10) years. I feels good to be able to type something just to have it out there. So, to those 3 of you that posted a comment for me........Thank You!! I needed that vote of confidence.
How many of you have seen Julie & Julia? I watched it yesterday and really enjoyed it. I guess you might say that is what inspired me to get off my butt and start my blog. I had set up a blog prior to this, but lacked to follow through to actually do something with it. So, maybe I am following in Julie's footsteps, but you can rest assured that I'm not going to cook every recipe that Julia published!!! I think my family would freak if I served half of the things in her cookbook! Cowboys (or at least mine) don't take to kindly to eating things they can't pronounce. I'm trying to "culture" him, but it may be the end of me!! :)
Today, I am making 4 B's Cream of Tomato Soup. If you live in Montana, New Mexico, and I'm not sure where else, you may know of the 4 B's Restaurant. A long time ago, my grandmother got their recipe for Cream of Tomato soup. It is legendary. In fact, it's not uncommon for someone to go their just to have this soup. I plan on putting it on here (allrecipes.com) and full credit will go to the restaurant. I hope I don't get in trouble for posting it (copyrights and such), but I guess I'll take my chances. It is too delicious not to share!! So, it's me and Stone (my 15 month-old son) today at home. The snow has stuck around this time, the wind is blowing, and it feels like a great day for some hot soup.
Well, I guess with that, I will say, "Bon Appetit!!" (Just like Julia) :)
