-- Dare to... Be Thankful: Sunday Soup Night --

Such a great weekend!  Two days of sleeping in makes me really happy :)  It also doesn't hurt that while I was cleaning the house on Saturday Lucas surprised me with dinner reservations at one of our favorite Italian places, Del Dente.  Lucas had the special, fusilli with peppers, peas and pearl onions in a parmesan cream sauce, and I had fettucine with pepper and red onion in a bolognese sauce - YUM!  We finished the night off watching a movie on the couch.

Sunday I headed out to HomeSense and for groceries.  I was lucky and found a couple small cabinets that I'm going to use for a project in our bedroom that I'll share later on.  

For today though I'm super excited to participate in the Dare to DIY party that Kim is throwing again this year.
Dare to DIY
This week is Dare to... Be Thankful.  And while we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving last month, I still wanted to participate in the party :)  So for this week's Sunday Soup Night I made a soup with tons of fall flair!  Earlier this fall we've tried Natalie's Ribolitta, and Butternut Squash, Ginger and Orange soup and Natalie's Lemon Orzo Chicken soup.  Tonight's was a recipe I found on Pinterest - Spicy Sweet Potato Soup.  Lucas says it was the perfect blend of creamy, pureed goodness... 

This one was ever so slightly complicated  - but I think it was worth it.  So yummy!

I also made a small batch of blitz bread to serve on the side.  I don't think I let it rise quite long enough but it was a nice side dish.

We don't have a soup recipe for next week - any suggestions??

Oh and if you haven't already, be sure to pop by the NewlyWoodwards and  check out some of the great Thanksgiving DIY projects!

Looks delicious - I'd love it but not sure my kiddos would. They don't go for the pureed soups! Thanks for sharing.
