Perfect Night For Soup

It is GROSS out; been storming all day – snow, freezing rain and slush.  Ick ick ick. I had to make a trip to the grocery store before heading home and even with Winter tires, I was sliding every where.

Usually I defrost something for Supper in the morning before I leave but opps, not today.  Instead,  I decided it was the perfect night for a warm bowl of soup and a toasted sammie.

I always see the boxes of Imagine Organic Soups at Superstore but have never tried ‘em out.  Chose the Creamy Butternut Squash.  Nutrition info is pretty great; love it when I can find soups that have under 500mg of sodium per serving.

I warmed the soup up on the stove and added a sprinkle of curry powder and fresh ground pepper. It was thick, creamy and filling. Mmm mmm! A tasty way to get in a serving of veggies.

My sandwich was actually an ezekiel tortilla with lean ham and swiss cheese warmed in the oven and then rolled up with mustard, tomato slices & spinach.

Very satisfying and full of lean protein, complex carbs and veggies. Plus the whole meal came in at a mere 375 calories.


I have to admit that I’m disappointed with the 10-15cms of snow that’s currently coming down out there.  I was really looking forward to getting outside for my run tonight but….. looks like it’s going be on the dreadmill instead. Oh well, gotta do what I gotta do.  So glad that its only 3K though. 🙂

Before I sign off, I want to thank JennyDiary of a Fat Girl & Her Drive to be a Thin Girl for selecting me for the Beautiful Blogger Award.

I have to share 7 things about myself that you probably don’t know….

1.  When I was 16 I went on a student exchange and lived in Montreal for 2 months.  I had the time of my life and much to my Mother’s dismay,  came home with a permanent reminder of the trip.   For the record I got two other tattoos after this one, hate them both and wish that I could afford laser surgery to get them removed.  This one I don’t mind though. 

2.  I have about 20 cross stitch projects started from several years ago.  They were just waiting for me to finish. I would start one and get bored of it, and then start another. 

3.  I’m afraid of dandelions.  Well not really anymore, but when I was younger I hated, actually was terrified of this one particular type of dandelions that had little black things in the middle.  Used to call them “Yucky Dandelions.” To this day when I walk by them I shudder.  [Image Source]

4. I’m 27 years old and have never been on an airplane. I know, sad right?

5.  I’ve never broken a bone or had a cavity in my life.  *knock on wood*

6. I like my water room temperature.  [Image Source]

7. I’m always paranoid about leaving things plugged in and the house will catch on fire.  I’ve driven 15-20 mins and turned around and drove all the way home just to be sure.  This includes the stove, oven, coffee maker and hair straightener.

There you have it.  I’m passing this award along to Shirls, Vanessa, Amy, Holly, Lex, Laura and H-Woman!  Looking forward to learning a little more about all you lovely ladies!
