(Side note I totally want this mug!)
This pasta-less (at least in my serving) pasta e fagioli soup makes an easy take and go lunch for busy days and is perfect for warming up my cold hands after a run on my day off. Not pictured is the giant glass of water and two other mugs of tea I sipped on while finishing my happiness paper in the afternoon (note to professors, having your students write a paper on what they are doing to promote happiness... not the best way to encourage said happiness).
After an afternoon of tutoring geometry (my least favorite of High School maths) I was happy to come home to find my dad making tomato soup in the kitchen. Sadly I was out of bread, but I didn't let that stop me from enjoying a grilled cheese with my tomato soup (though I guess technically it's a quesadilla, right?!)
Sad fact is the picture doesn't look nearly as nice lit by only overhead lights... unfortunately I was unwilling to delay my dinner until tomorrow morning for the sake of a good shot.
I wrapped up the evening with more Yogi ginger tea and my new chamomile bubble bath from the BF. A pot of tea, a bubbly tub, and a new book is an almost perfect way to spend the evening (at least in my mind). I snuck downstairs later for another slice of my cranberry citrus pound cake from Sweet Ali's bakery... but didn't feel like staging a photo shoot in the bathroom (sorry guys!).
What's your trick for shooting photos when the winter light leaves something to be desired? Are you planning on linking up to the chopped kitchen challenge tomorrow? (If you aren't you totally should be!)
