Cheeseburger Soup and Spinach Lasagna (...but not at the same time!)

It's Tuesday again!  ...and I'm blogging?  What?  Well, it just so happens that today, Tuesday feels like Thursday.  Tomorrow's like Friday because this Thursday is Thanksgiving!  That means a few days off from school, awesome road trip, family, fun, and loads of delicious food.  I love Thanksgiving!  <3

I'm a little sad that I'm really not in the position to be able to bring any food.  Nor do I have to.  I'm not sure what I could even prepare that would survive a 5-hour car trek and still be edible... other than something terrible like cookies.  So, in light of being told to "bring my appetite" up to Long Island... that's what I plan to do.  That's where we (Neal, Jim, and I) will headed late tomorrow night.  I've heard that it's probably the worst traffic it has been in a while because of construction, so it may be a long ride.  At least we'll be in good company.

After that, we'll be headed to West Virginia to visit Jim's (and mine, I guess) family for a second Thanksgiving.  Did I mention that we're having a small Thanksgiving feast tomorrow night with my dad?  Yeah... so, here we come 3 Thanksgivings... haha.

Anyway, Neal came over for the usual Glee watching bonanza and I made something awesome:

Spicy Cheeseburger Soup

...and here it is in my bowl, topped with bacon. 

I wasn't too sure about it as it was cooking, but it all congealed together nicely to make a yummy pot of soup.  Be warned though, the recipe says that it should only take about 15 minutes of prep.  That's if you are a master chef who chops on a daily basis!  It had a lot of veggies to be chopped and took me quite some time... but I'd say it was completely ready to eat about an hour from when I started prepping it (so, not terrible). 

I think this is my favorite soup that I've made thus far into my cooking journey. 

I also have to send a shout out to my buddy, Lavearn... I was raving to her about an amazing recipe for Slow Cooker Spinach Lasagna a while ago and said she should check out my blog.  Well, I definitely forgot to add the recipe.  ;-)  Sorry Lavearn!  Here's a picture of it in my crockpot looking all scrumptious:

Happy Thanksgiving!  :-)
