MMmm...Mmmm Good!

Hello my dear friends!
Can I just say that you guys are the best.
Thank you so much for all your kind words of support and friendship.
I love being a part of a place where others just get it, ya know?
We understand how things go, we relate and we share.

Today I wanted to warm your hearts like you do mine so I wanted to pass along a delicious recipe that my friend Heather from At The Picket Fence shared last week.

It is the Pasta e Fagioli - Inspired by Olive Garden





you can use in the slow cooker!!!

Just click here to get and print out the recipe as well as see all the wonderful things that Heather and her sister Vanessa have, they are so sweet.

So when it starts to look like this out
(the gales of November are a bit early this year)

grab yourself a bowl of warm soup and relax by candle light or fire light and warm your heart and soul.

Thank you Heather for sharing this!!!!

Red Gate Farm said...

I printed that recipe last week and picked up the ingredients over the weekend... I was meaning to make it one night this week! Nothing like homemade soup on a blustery kind of day... or night!


PS I love your candles and jars! I have jars like that in my pantry but I never thought of using the over sized jars for candles!

Oh this was a wonderfully warm my heart, friendship through blogging, it's quiet "Lovely".
I'm so very glad I figured out what was wrong with me leaving comments, and yes it was me and not blogger. I have recently downloaded chrome, and until I figured out that I needed to use chrome to leave comments it wasn't working.Silly me!!
Have a warm weekend dear friend!
I will go check out your friends, love,

Oh Michelle,
Look what happened, I turn my back for a few days and all hell lets loose. I hope everything is getting back to normal for you now. Time to take a deep breath and relax.

Ahhhhhhhhhh - nice music.

A double Ahhhhhhhh - soup! Now you have hit a very vital nerve for me there. If I was on death row and asked what my last meal would be I wouldn't even have to think - SOUP!

My husband says, soup's not a meal - it's a drink, so we don't have it that often :-(
Blessings my dear friend!

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

Love your post! Your photo's are so beautiful and the soup goes so well. Looks like soup is needed!

michele said...

An Island Mom said...

Love the lighthouse pictures! So beautiful. We aren't having soup weather here in Carolina yet, but that definitely looks good anyway.

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

We are not near the cool weather yet but he soup still looks yummy! My mom makes it. She sort of just throws it together. That's how she cooks! I may just give this one a try.

I love your new header. I know I'm late, but it looks great! Your photos are beautiful too.

Libbie said...

The music wa perfect with your photos! What a gorgeous windy day! I think I might be making soup next week myself :)

Cheers to your weekend and all that it inspires

Loretta Fontaine (APPLESandRUBIES) said...

Michelle- I can just feel that cold breeze from the photos. Soup weather is great, and the heat from the stove (or crockpot!) when you simmer it a bonus, too.

We're very cold here. there's a big hole in the wall covered by just a tarp for the windowseat renovation. Brrrr....


Robynne's Nest said...

Hi Michelle, thanks for dropping by my blog..I'm glad you enjoyed my squirrel story. I love your beach photos, they are stunning...they would look amazing blown up and mounted...perhaps in your new room that you are decorating...looking forward to seeing the finished result. Robx

Debbie said...

This DOES look good, Michelle!!
The pictures of the waves crashing over the pier are wonderful!!
You are so blessed to live so close to the big lake!
Hugs to you!!!!

Deborah said...

Laura Trevey said...

Hi Michelle ~

Comfort food always helps, and that looks delicious...

Have a great start to your week ahead! xoxo

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

mmmm, pasta e fagioli is my favorite thing to get at Olive garden. Sometimes they even give it to me for free because the kids meal comes with soup or salad and my kids won't eat either one. I'm excited I can make it at home now!
Your photos of the waves crashing against the lighthouse are really cool! I have always loved lighthouses!

A Vintage Vine said...

That image of the gales is beautiful! Hard to believe you guys are starting down that road already! Here in Tx. we are still battling heat!

Kelle Dame said...

Slow cooker?? Now that's what I'm talkin bout!! Thanks for sharing!

Rose West said...

So I had to stop by to say thanks for spreading the word about this recipe! I made it last night for Bible Study and I must say, I loved it! So delicious, and I love how easy it was. Perfect for fall weather too :)
