Wonderful Blog Birthday

Hi folks! I can't believe the amazing response to my Cinnamon Bread giveaway! Don't forget- you have until Sunday at midnight to enter. Thank you all for the happy blog birthday comments! My day at work was full of meetings so it flew right by! I came home and gave the whole house a nice clean and then made up an easy dinner-

A melty turkey sammy for Josh:

And V8 Corn Soup with added corn, chicken, and lots of ground red pepper. On top of the soup, I put some tortilla chips and cheese:

Very yum! I had a big lunch so this was the perfect dinner. What are you guys doing this weekend?
By the way, check out the awesome me & goji cereal giveaway on the great blog, HealthingIt

Nothing really planned although I should start going through things and packing. I'm mainly looking forward to the warmer temps and possibly running in shorts! woohoo!!

Anything with the description melty sounds good to me!

Mmm, melty cheese makes my heart sing. Happy blogiversary... I was so excited about your bread that I completely forgot to wish you one.

This weekend I am DETERMINED to get my booty out of the apartment and SOCIALIZE!

eatingbender said...

Mm I love that you added tortilla chips and cheese to that soup! I get that a lot at restaurants, but have never done it myself. Thanks for the idea!

This weekend - finishing up my last paper and PowerPoint presentation so I can get on outta here and head home for spring break!

Thanks for your comment on my blog about the tummy troubles, too. It stinks that we can relate to each other in this way, but it's also very comforting knowing I'm not alone. I hope that your tummy has been having a good week :o)

Once again, happy blog birthday!!

ChickPea said...

Krista said...

How is that V8 soup? I've tried the tomato and have a carrot one to break into still. Wondering if I should be trying out the corn one as well?!

Maria said...

Happy Friday! I am going to a new cookie bakery to take some photos for the blog. Sat. we are doing a french pastry class at the cooking school...and probably going out with some friends that night. How about you guys?

Diana said...

Happy belated Blogoversery!

I've been curious about those V8 soups -- I like how you jazzed it up some! :)

alessa said...

laker game tonight! :)

how are things going in the new house, everything coming together?

hope you have a great weekend!

Michelle said...

V8 makes soup? I guess that's a natural fit for them.

This weekend is another NYC weekend of school for me! The topics are going to be Ayurveda and Raw Foods. yay!

Danielle said...

Nothing planned in stone, just hanging out with some friends. Hopefully spending some time outside enjoying the nice weather we are supposed to have.
Have a great weekend!

Erica,
I love you soup additions. Sounds like a perfectly light, but filling dinner!

This weekend involves a little work, and a lot of yoga. I would also like to sleep past 5 AM!

Enjoy your Saturday and Sunday my friend. Are you loving your new house?!?

redheadedjournal said...

I am going to try that soup combo with fake chicken! I bet the tortillas added just the right amount of crunch!

That's so sweet how you taylor your hubby's meals :) I do the same for mine!

Erin of Care to Eat said...

Well you're just sweet as pie! This wknd I think I'm working. Do I say that every week?

Katie said...

My husband's birthday is tomorrow so we're going out with some friends. Sunday we're having lunch with his family at the in-laws' house.

Megan said...
