A Quiet Weekend

It's Very Quiet. The main noisemakers in the family, Scoutdad and Scouts 1, 2 and 3 are all camping this weekend, leaving me, Sister and Lil' Scout Wannabe at home to enjoy the quiet. Sister and I will enjoy the weekend, watching chick flicks and maybe get some scrapbooking in. We will give Lil' Scout Wannabe the remote and a stack of DVDs, and we might also bring out the Forbidden Toys (the ones that stay put up in the closet after Mama steps on their tiny parts one too many times). The Scouting Four, however, will be freezing their patooshkies off out in the wild somewhere. (This means, of course, that Scoutdad might bring Scouts 2 and 3 home sometime tomorrow, if they turn out to be Scout Weenies like their mother.) I made a big ol' pot of our favorite Sausage and Kale Soup, and we'll feed Lil' Scout PB&J sandwiches since he is a Soup Snob and will only eat "Grandpa's Soup" (potato soup). Tomorrow, we will eat pancakes and bacon and popcorn and soup, scrapbook all day and watch Chick Flicks and HGTV. It's gonna be a good weekend.

Sounds like my kind of weekend! We'll probably be total slugs around here tomorrow as well... hubby will be off in Sacramento moonlighting, so I'll be doing the single-mom thing again.

I made the soup after you posted the recipe a while ago, and we loved it! Then we went to Olive Garden and tried the "real thing." You're right -- you can't tell the difference. Thanks for a great recipe! :)

Sounds like a ball when the girls rule the roost! *wink* Hope all your Scouts ended up warm, dry, happy, and good-tired.
