Lunch Update

By the way, the soup and scones are amazing! It was really easy to make both recipes and they are really good. I didn't pay much attention to the amounts for the soup. I just cut up a couple onions and carrots and added a few cloves of garlic and cooked them in olive oil in one of my big le creuset pots until they were soft and cooked through. I added a little salt, pepper and dried basil. Then I added 2 big cans of peeled plum tomatoes and some chicken stock. I pureed it all with an immersion/hand held blender right in the pot and finished it off by adding a little more broth, a little cream and some more dried basil and a pinch of garlic salt. It is so good. For the scones I followed the recipe and they were so easy. I may have added more cheese than called for, but I am glad, because I can actually taste a cheese flavor in the finished product. The point is...you should make this soup- it is really good- and the scones are pretty awesome too- I like to dip them in the soup....

It sounds so good! And think of all the money you'll be saving that can now go towards decorating!

Hey Midwest! Saw your comment about the pillow, it is from Pottery Barn. I got them on sale (the pillow covers, bought the inserts on sale from Garnet Hill) a couple of months ago. Not sure if they are still carrying them. They are the "tile print"...

It all sounds so yummy and Ken is a huge fan of tomato soup...I've never made scones, baking scares me a little, but I may have to try it, the recipe does sound doable!!!
