roasted tomato soup and a sleeve.

Well, and this Peanut Butter Popcorn. I doubled the amount of popcorn so that there would be a better ratio of savory/not so bad for me : sweet/bad for me, and I’m happy with that decision. (Plus, there was more popcorn.) This totally helped me power through a lot of comments for my students yesterday.

And here’s that soup: Heidi’s Roasted Tomato Soup from Super Natural Cooking. This one has been in my fall and winter rotation for a couple of years now, and every time I make it I am oh-so-happy.

Last night’s debate gave me some dedicated sleeve knitting time — one down, one to go!

Boh doesn’t seem anywhere near as excited about this as I am. (Maybe that’s because I made him wait until I bound off the sleeve to go for today’s walk…)

Also, thanks for all of your ideas and comments about my mice! I don’t want to jinx anything, but so far so good. I’ve caught a few, and I’ve filled every gap I can find with steel wool. I also got some pouches of spearmint and peppermint labeled as natural, pet- friendly mouse deterrent. I figure it can’t hurt, especially with my critter-filled attic and earthen floor basement. Despite last night’s temps in the high 30s, I found no evidence of mice in the kitchen this morning! Hooray! I’m going to wait a few days to move everything back into the half of the kitchen I moved into the dining room, but I’m optimistic.

  1. I just had a bowl of soup I made – roasted butternut squash and tomato … delicious. And I love your idea of the savory popcorn … thanks for sharing!

  2. Yup, Boh looks a little put out that his walk was delayed but he should be happy he even got one. LOL

    The sleeve looks great and am anxious to see how the whole sweater turns out.

    Food looks yummy too. I love tomato soup especially if there are grilled cheese sandwiches to go with it. YUM. Hopefully our temperatures will get below 90 soon so I can make some soup.

  3. Yum! That soup looks perfect for fall — and I’m glad to hear that the mice are taking the hint. What’s the sleeve going to be? (Did I miss that?)

  4. The soups looks wonderful. After seeing you post the popcorn on FB, the girls and I made some for a movie snack. Did you add the Sriracha? I might make a kid bag and an adult bag next time!
