Simple Tomato Soup

Well it has been quite awhile since I blogged anything. I promise to catch up. Life has just been hectic. Hubby in and out of town, Little one just started school. I now feel like I never get a moment. If I do its a tiny moment. Well this morning started off by raining, I was thru off since its been warm all week(California weather). My kid wanted to wear her rain gear. So I have many friends that garden, I wanted to just didn't happen. Most make that mistake and plant too many tomato plants. I did the first time(lesson learned). But thanks to my wonderful friends, I was never without tomatoes. 



This time around felt like I had a ton.
 So what to do, make tomato soup and sandwiches. . . . .panini that is. My midget has been wanting to get in the kitchen so today was the perfect time. So here's my take on a old time favorite, its a recipe off the top of my head, with ingredients I had on hand and hope you enjoy it

Belated Happy Valentines. . . .

Hello All, Belated Valentines Day. I know, I'm a day late. I found myself so busy, with NikkiJoesSweets, volunteering for stuff, getting ready for the holiday and my hubby's birthday is a few days after. Just didnt have time to write or anything. . . .just one crazy weekend for me. I'm always excited for the valentine's holiday. It's always been family holiday for us, since the birth of our lovely daughter four years ago. We all get dressed up or dressed down in our Vday pjs, stay home, and plan fun activities accordingly. This year I don't know what made us decide to venture out of this crazy holiday. The gymnastics gym my little one attends has a "Parents Night Out," twice a month and add a extra "PNO" for Vday this month. So my hubby and I thought we'd take a chance & go out.
