Stone Soup for Five: Things to share for the week

Things to share for the week


I LOVE this prayer from Time Warp Wife
 I, too, pray regularly for each of my boys' future wives.

After reading and being SO INSPIRED by The Kitchen Counter Cooking School I'm changing how I cook.  No more MSG laden Cream of Mushroom soup or canned spaghetti or enchilada sauces (yup, all of them have MSG in them not to mention other things I can't pronounce), I'm looking up recipes of things I can make from scratch that are easy to store or freeze, starting with Cream of Something soup.


Three ways to do cream of mushroom soup:


or a quick microwave/blender version

or a powdered version you just add water to

All of them look interesting.  I'm going to try all three and let you know what I think.  Let me know if you try them too!

Also, I dehydrated veggies this weekend in the middle of prepping a bunch of food for this week!

Mushrooms and carrots will be rehydrated for soups, stews, etc.  Just pour boiling water over and let soak for a minute or two.  Very easy and I feel so homestead-y and productive!  (The storage jars they are in are still on my counter because I like looking at them.)

And, this weekend the awkward happened.  It was time.  I had to go to the MALL *shudder* and get fitted PROPERLY for a new bra.  I HATE the thought of it, but the reality was that it was really almost pleasant, very professional, and completely worth it.
Ladies, if you have never been professionally fitted for a bra, DO IT SOONEST.  If you are big or small, or somewhere in the middle, do it.  It makes ALL the difference.  I went to Victoria's Secret (I know, I know...) but they are THE BEST at fitting, and their bras are AMAZING and I didn't see even one diamond encrusted one.  I was wearing the wrong size and style for years.  It makes such a difference.  Ya, there's a touch of awkward, but really, it is only for a second because they are so professional, and the employees who work with you come in all sizes too, they are not the sassy models that you think of when you think VS.  I totally recommend it.  Really.  And I'm not a bra or mall girl.
