Super Soup


These are the faces of men in love. I know, it's easy to mistake this kind of love for brain-dead stupor, but it's different. Those of you with loved ones that are addicted to gaming will recognize the symptoms. My husband bought Super Mario Galaxy last week, and he and Zaya have definitely been enjoying it. A says that it's the first game that he's played in a long time that makes him smile. Zaya is scared by some of the things in it, but then he's three, and is occasionally frightened of things in Veggie Tales episodes, so don't take that as a demerit for the game. I recommend it for any of my relatives out there who are contemplating Wii games. It's a very original layout and has a lot of creative levels and games to play.

Switching gears....

I'm looking forward to seeing family soon. There will still be quite a few people who are too far away, but at least we'll get to see some of you guys. My mother-in-law has decided that our Thanksgiving with her family (she's one of six kids) is going to be soup. We'll have four or five different kinds of soup plus breads and desserts. I think it sounds great, because, well, I like soup. And it's not like we won't be getting lots of turkey and ham from other places. Also, it's going to be COLD on Thanksgiving day. The high today was 80, which, granted, is unseasonably warm for the end of November, but still. The high on Thursday is supposed to be in the 40's with freezing during the nights around then. Ugh. Oh well. I get to break out the sweaters. I love sweaters. Oh, and soup. The soup will definitely be nice.

What are the rest of you planning for your Thanksgiving celebrations? (Look at that desperate plea for comment love. How can you resist?)

Well, the Thanksgiving celebration will most assuredly be turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, green beans, rolls, tea, and lots of sweet deserts...but that will be on Friday. Thursday there will probably be three of us here...getting ready for the family on Friday. I think soup sounds like a great idea. Bean and Bacon or maybe fideo with chip crumbs or crackers.

Oops! Thanksgiving is this week! I almost forgot,since we're not going anywhere. I'm going to keep it simple since it's only the 5 of us. A small turkey,some kind of green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberries, and stuffing, and maybe some yeast rolls. I can't wait, two days of no school and no work. Hopefully two days to relax.

Boy, you're going to freeze your giblets :) Crank up the boiler folks, it's going to be a cold one.

Well, this year is a little different. I'm baking the turkey breast, Ren is in charge of deserts, Alli is in charge of rolls, stuffing and gravy, my mom is bringing salad, sweet potatos and fluffy ambrosia stuff, and my mother in law is making a leg of lamb. How's that for an over indulgence?! (secretly I wish we were headed to where you all are on Friday)

Soup would be almost as bad for me as our new Christmas tradition of having klub for supper. Nasty! I don't like soup, or Klub.
Donnie was just looking at that Mario Game and wants it so bad when we finally manage to get a Wii. (I'm working on it! Amazon has a voting thing going on that could bring the Wii to $1000 people for under $100!!)
