On a Frosty Morning

Brrr! We had frost this morning. I heard the scraping of car windows and peeked outside in the dark. Sure enough, white frost covered the roofs and grass.

On Sunday afternoon we arrived home to find this beautiful arrangement on the front porch. No name, no note and I couldn't imagine where it came from. A message on the answering machine revealed the answer. Our talented daughter-in-law Katie took a flower arranging course on Saturday and shared one of her projects with us. It's so cheerful and colorful. I love fresh flowers and have been missing picking them from my garden. These sit in my kitchen where I can enjoy them while I cook.

The cooler weather always makes me want soup. I could eat soup everyday, I think. I came up with this recipe that combines ginger and a bit of red curry paste with lots of vegetables and some chicken. It fills and warms the tummy nicely. The recipe for Ginger Chicken Soup is found on my recipe blog. Just click the link!

Hi Lorrie!

This soup looks soo good! I'm in the soup mood too and ginger is one of my favorite things (used as a savory or a sweet)! I will pop on over to your recipe blog to see if I have what it takes to make this today! Thanks so much for sharing.

What a beautiful and thoughtful floral gift. Your daughter-in-law is very talented.

Your soup looks very delicious. It's only in the 60s here in Tucson (will drop to the 30s tonight--so weird for us) and my sister made homemade vegetable soup for me as I'm recovering my silly pneumonia (which hasn't slowed me down any).
