A New Recipe

I've been working on spring cleaning and yardwork this week. Today I weeded the entire back flower bed - THAT was a job! Now it's Jon's turn to do the mulching. I attempted to do week 7 day 3 of C25K this week, but I failed miserably...I'm sure because I was already very tired from doing yard/housework all day. I need to start getting up early enough to run in the mornings.

I got a very sweet surprise and chocolate covered strawberries.

And two very sweet cards came with them.

This was an early anniversary surprise. Our anniversary is on Sunday, and we have reservations at Texas de Brazil for brunch. The "salad" bar for brunch is just mouth is watering just thinking about it!

I tried a new recipe tonight - Aztec Corn Soup. The original recipe is from The Happy Herbivore.

I used chicken stock instead of milk, and I omitted the maple syrup. I also sauteed and onion and a red pepper, and I added them to the mix before pureeing. I garnished with plain Greek yogurt and a little Dayai cheese. It was good...could be much better with a few changes. Next time I'll definitely add some sea salt. For Jon and Savy I'll add some chicken and cheddar cheese. I'll experiment with the recipe until I get it just right.
