Our breakfast for our bosses yesterday was a big hit. Let’s just say my bacon stuffed cinnamon rolls were a hit, as well as the breakfast casserole my co-worker makes that is to die for, and waffles, sausage, hash browns – we even had a special drink menu!
My friend and I were able to walk outside yesterday – perfect weather – yesterday I decided to walk with 4 pound weights – had I known I was going to be hole punching paper for two hours later in the afternoon, I may have made a different decision!
So I saw somewhere (if its your idea – let me know – I forgot to write down where I saw it!) a recipe for cream of tomato soup with blue cheese and bacon. I nixed the bacon idea, but loved the blue cheese idea. I bought roma tomatoes last week – only .49 cents a pound!

The tang of the blue cheese makes this soup!

|pinch cracked pepper
|ounce blue cheese, shredded

- Add remaining ingredients. Using a stick blender puree.
- Serve with additional blue cheese on top.
I actually had time to make this one before work – the tomatoes simmered while I did yesterday’s blog post. I gave some to my co-worker with a sharp cheddar grilled cheese sandwich on the side, and she called me and said “if I could only eat this for every meal for the rest of my life, I’d be happy!”
I didn’t like that picture, so I took another one this morning – make this soup – only 2 points!
I used to work with a really fun attorney – but she left the firm a few years ago. Tony asked if I had talked to them lately, and I said no, so Tony sent her husband an email – we didn’t hear back from them, so I emailed her and she then asked if we wanted to get together for dinner last night – absolutely!
They have an adorable almost two year old daughter who was so fricken cute. And so well behaved! We were there probably two and a half hours – Tony and I both said our kids wouldn’t have lasted 15 minutes at that age!
We ate here:
So, here is where some of my 1000+ dinner came from:
We had a great time! 😀
