Hello! Sorry I haven't been blogging in a while but I'm back! I actually have 3 things to post today but I think I am going to stick with this one soup! It's a Cream of Celery Soup VEGANIZED but before I get to the recipe I thought I would tell you a few other things that have been going on lately.
First...I am totally sick of winter! It's 5 degrees one day and 40 the next. Everyone (but me - knock on wood) is sick. We got hit with another snow storm today and there is about 6 inches of snow on the roads just from today. Under than is a good amount of ice. My car didn't make it all the way up my hill when I drove home so it's off on the side of the road about a block down from my house.
I have been testing some stuff in the kitchen and I hope to tell you more about that in the coming days and weeks!
I've been busy with League of Women Voters stuff and I have been thinking about joining Zontas International and our local chapter. I have also been really busy with County Fair stuff. Not only do we have our entertainment committees - I'm now part of the concessions/vendors committee and VIP committee. I was also put on the advertising committee.
I've also been keeping up with my foreign coins! It's been pretty FUN! My last HAPPY MAIL was Monday and I received about 5 new-to-my-collection countries.
My niece, Trinity, is growing TOO FAST - but then again - we all say that about the 'little ones' don't we? She's 8 months old today. She is crawling. She's a pretty happy kid!
Now for the soup!
