She who cooks

The Soup Gods smiled on me tonight!

After we had our Thanksgiving dinner last fall, not only did I freeze several packages of cooked turkey, I made turkey stock to make soup. It is traditional to make soup with the leftovers after all. I knew that I would need quick and easy meals later in the year.

For tonight's dinner I made Turkey Tortilla Soup.

And oh my god it was amazing.

I don't know if it was the combo of fresh cheese and fresh salsa from the farmers market. But it was truly amazing...

And you all missed it.

I bet the leftovers will be even better.

I can't wait.

Another Finish

I finished Kei's Parfait last week. I think it came out spectacular. I can't wait to show it to her. (The designer is a member of my local EGA Chapter). The Color choices are mine, it was originally designed for two tones of one color. But I saw it and said to her "This needs to be done in black, red and gold." Its a little stretched, but I haven't removed it from the frame yet...ironing will fix it.

Here's the picture.
