It’s raining hard this weekend as Tropical Storm Lee creeps his way across the Southeast. We spent the weekend at the beach and never saw the sunshine once while we were there. Talk about a tropical depression. We did see 40 mph sustained winds blow the lawn chairs around the condo patio and nearly blow my family off a bridge as they were crossing it. We finally made it home and the winds and rain followed us here. I will say that 40 mph sustained winds at the beach are NOTHING compared to the 45 mph gusts that are whipping my giant oak trees sideways outside my window right now.
All this rain makes me wanna curl up and take a nap.
It also makes me crave soup. We had taco soup this weekend at the beach and I had Panera bread tomato soup for lunch today. When I’m in a hurry, my favorite soup mix is Bear Creek. Have you tried it yet? I rarely eat soup from a can anymore after trying this stuff. It’s simple and easy and GOOD. And BPA free, if you’re worried about that.
I shredded a little bit of Cabot pepperjack on top for some spiciness. Mmm Mmm good.
They also have a darn good chili mix. 🙂
What’s your favorite soup recipe? This Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice soup will always be at the very top of my list. A giant pot of it will likely make an appearance at my house soon if this weather holds out.
Hope you’ve had a great three day weekend, everyone. My prayers are with everyone in Texas right now facing giant wildfires and drought. I wish I could send some of this rain over to you tonight to help fight the fires.
