I am cold!!! How can this be? My body wants soup and bread! Specifically chicken soup and hearty bread. Yummy chickeny soup with carrots and celery and chicken!
And noodles...so sad...like my mom and dad used to make...my mom would start soup early in the morning and we would have soup for lunch...I come from soup loving parents...can I stop here for a minute and cry a teensy bit?

I miss my mom and dad still...so much...it's so hard not to have them to call...ever!


Bread...I come from bread loving parents...my mom baked bread...she was known in our little town for her homemade breads! Her lovely loaves would be at bake sales and other events and be snatched up first...lovely white loaves that we craved!


I love this Jasper Fforde book...love it...it is too clever...I am in love with a different character every day...Tiger Prawns, Jennifer Strange, today it's the last dragon...I love the last dragon! The Quarkbeast...I love the Quarkbeast!

The Emerald Atlas was one of my favorite books ever and just today the second book was released!

And something new from R.L.Stine was released today, too!

Both are Kindled and ready to read!

Off to make chickeny soup with noodles!

Happy Tuesday!


  1. I want soup too.
    I also want bread. But you know, that pesky gluten issue takes care of that. And now I am allergic to palm oil which is in the best tasting GF bread I've found so now I can't have it. I tire of eating sandwiches wrapped with lettuce.

  2. I know how you feel - I still want to talk to my dad just about every day.

    We are soup lovers around here too and it's cold, so it's definitely soup weather. I was outside with a heavy winter coat a little while ago and the UPS guy delivered something across the street and he was in shorts and a short sleeved shirt!

    1. It is that day to day missing that really hurts...I should have turned on the furnace today...but it just seems so early!

  3. My mami (healthy and coming to visit in a few weeks) adores soup too. For me, I learned to love them with age. I consider my self quite the Soupista now. ;)

    I miss my papi so much.
    Lately, I've been listening the songs he use to like when I was growing up. It makes me feel close to him.

    1. It's just so sad without them...like something is always always missing.

  4. I want soup and bread too. It is freezing. Sending you a hug- and can imagine how much you must miss your parents. The Last Dragonslayer looks amazing. I can't wait to read it. I still have to read The Emerals Atlas!

    1. I replied in the comment box...sorry!

  5. Thank you for the hug...I needed it!

    I made soup, bread and pumpkin muffins!

  6. Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow has left a new comment on your post "Soup...Bread...Books!":

    I'm curious about Red Rain...love anything with the word "rain," lol.

    Soups...you are making me very hungry for soup. I had lentil soup last night, but it wasn't homemade. On Sunday, I had corn chowder at Mimi's....delicious.

    Just finished reading More Than You Know. Beautiful....and now my eyes are tired from reading.

  7. I've been in a soup mood too. Chicken noodle sounds better than the Peanut Stew I made the other day, it was good just didn't hit the spot.
