The last few days for me were soooo stressful! My computer, the only computer I own, broke down. I freaked out. I mean I seriously

LOST.MY.SHIZZ 


Not only was I cut off from work, I was cut off from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc

In other words I was cut off from y'all, and I totally realized that I am addicted to you . I huge ol' puffy heart love connecting with you in any way I can. 

Is that a bad thing?

I hope not!

You're my peeps and I luvs ya

So what do I do when I don't have a computer to take up my time?

Clean the house?

Oh hellllll no!

I cooked of course! 

And boy oh' boy were Kevin and Mini Me glad I did!!

I made 3 dishes in just a few hours. There was so much food crankin' out of my kitchen they couldn't keep up.

Of course Kevin kept asking me, "You aren't going to leave a ton of dirty dishes are you?".

*eyeroll* 

No dear, I am trying to clean as I go.

Ppfffttttt you should have seen the kitchen.

Dude, I am feedin' ya. #Quityerbitchin

Bahahaha 


So, back to the cookin', and mainly this soup (since that IS what we are focusing on in this post), Uummmm ya, I think I found my new favorite soup!

Seriously.

I am not blowin' smoke here people.

As soon as I took a bite I was ticked off that I hadn't made a double batch. I mean this stuff fires on all cylinders. You have creamy, rich, a touch of sweetness, and then a little bit of heat sneaks up on you. Not to mention those scrumptious bites of shrimp.

We all finished our bowls in lightning fast time.

Then there was a mad dash to the kitchen to see who got the rest of it.

This is worth the fight, I promise ya. It is heaven in a bowl!!!
