I love soup. Potato soups are my favorite. I also love Campbell's Bean & Bacon soup. It's one of those condensed soups in a can and it kind of looks like dog food when you open it, but if you can get past that it tastes awesome!
Tonight I treated myself to some Loaded Baked Potato soup. Our grocery store, Ralph's, has excellent hot soup ready to go at their stores, so I picked up some of that and a loaf of bread for dinner.
Notice that I eat my soup out of a giant mug instead of a bowl. Here's why: I eat almost everything from the comfort of my couch. We don't have a dinning room table, nor a dinning room right now, but even when we did I always preferred to sit on the couch. I hold my plate on my lap and put my drink on the coffee table. However, it's hard to hold a bowl of soup-it's always too hot. Instead I use a large over sized coffee mug. The handle allows me to hold the side of it with out burning my hand.
The other day my aunt Roberta from Con-tain-it e-mailed me a fabulous Apple Dumpling recipe from The Pioneer Woman. I picked up the few simple ingredients it called for and hurried home to try it. Let's just say I think I have a new favorite apple recipe!
I served myself a piece over french vanilla ice cream. YUMMY! I like eating desserts that require ice cream from my giant mug too, that way when the ice cream starts to melt it doesn't slide all over a plate. It smelled wonderful, it tasted wonderful, it was so easy to make and it was inexpensive!
The best part about it...
MY HUSBAND ATE IT!!!!!
Thank you Roberta and Pioneer Woman, you are miracle workers! He has never eaten any of my apple creations before, but absolutely loved this one. It has a nice custard flavor to it...maybe it was the secret ingredient, Mountain Dew! (Side note: my husband was at work so I brought the Apple Dumplings to him and his co-workers to try. Please excuse his appearance-he has a messy job. Also, in case you were wondering-he is eating it out of a plastic dish and using a tongue depressor as a utensil)
Now, for the good stuff. I have included in this picture the items that are associated with my Fall Favorite #3 and #4 since my computer was having issues and a picture wasn't available for FF #3 the other day.
For Fall Favorite #4 I have added SOUP, a small and simple soup recipe book, and a GIANT mug...good for all your soups, desserts, and hot chocolates.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my Fall Favorite #4 as much as my tummy did!
Fall Favorite #5 will be coming soon and I think I have saved the best and the biggest part of the giveaway for last. I'll be wrapping up and summarizing all my favorites on Tuesday, September 21st and then the link party portion of Fall Favorites will begin! I can't wait to see everyone else's Fall Favorites!
