I made my very first soup all by myself today! :-) *beams with pride* ...in my brand new giant soup pot... so exciting! Not to mention, tasty. AND healthy!

I should tell you that I had off from school today for the election, so I went into a cooking frenzy mode. I also made some eggsalad (my all-time favorite food) with some eggs that were on the verge of not being good anymore!
Now, I just need some waffles. :-)
The eggsalad waffle was concocted by my brother and I years ago. It takes that long to perfect it. Hehe, just kidding. Seriously though, if you've never had eggsalad on a waffle... well, you just don't know what you're missing.
Then, I went on to make the WW version of an Apple-Pear Crisp. I used my new fancy microplane to zest a lemon and an orange! Mmm... it smelled soooo good while it was baking. The recipe said to let it cool for at least 2 hours, but I decided that I would probably have liked it better if it were still warm. Don't get me wrong, it was awesomeness in a pan. We ate it with some vanilla ice cream.
It was soooo much fun to cook today. I don't think I've ever bought that much produce at a grocery store. The soup needed a lot! I also got some acorn squash (which is shaped like little pumpkins) to try another WW recipe. I love it when recipes come out just the way you want them to... and everyone gets to enjoy them! :-) Don't forget that the recipes are all linked to the captions! (Just in case you didn't know that!)
Happy cooking! <3
