A Warming Bowl of Soup

Hello Friends~ ~ ~

If you are like me a bowl of warm soup on a cold day is perfect, well almost. What makes it perfect for me is a pan of hot corn muffins.

I'm home alone today and getting lots of things done. Do you like having the house to yourself too? I decided to pamper myself and set a pretty little table for lunch in the sunroom.

Can't get done looking at and tasting these sweet little muffins. They are made in the tiny muffin pans and the recipe makes 24 tiny muffins. Truth be told I made these last night for dinner with the soup so today is leftovers. Honestly, I love leftovers, how about you?
The Muffin recipe is Martha's and it's called "Mini Cornbread Puddings". Try them, they are so moist and yummy. We like them better than regular cornbread.

Pretty bowl of Squash Soup garnished with home grown
and canned pickled beet & onion and a dollop of plain yogurt.

Coffee for dessert and a few minutes spent with
Julia Childs "Baking With Julia".

And a few more minutes. This is a beautiful book.

OK, Here is the recipe for the soup.

Love the soup recipe directions. Just the way I like to cook!! I HAVE to try the Mini Cornbread Muffins. We are cornbread freaks here. Love to fry it up in butter. Decadent!! ;-) Thanks, Arisha!

I love your style! And the simplicity of your soup today is brilliant. All to often we feel it has to be from scratch and a 100 steps... NOT!

Here you have add two unique ingredients to a classic soup base and created an unbelievable masterpiece. And those muffins ~ I could make a lunch, just with those.

Many thanks...

What a charming post. I love the ease with which the soup can be assembled and your muffins look delicious. You asked about spicing the shrimp omelet and I would not advise that for this recipe. The Chinese always have a reason for doing things in a specific way. Here the play is the subtle flavors that occur when these two ingredients are combined. Heat and spice would spoil that.

SOOO pretty! I would love to have a sunporch. YES I love being home alone, its a precious commodity that I dont get to often.

I've never had squash soup. I love Cornmeal muffins but I like them sweet,,are these sweet?

Hi Ahrisha,
You always present and describe things so beautifully. Stirring together three ingredients is the kind of recipe we all can follow! Thanks for reminding us that we all tend to make things (including life) too complicated.

I always appreciate your visits and comments. Your notes are always fresh and original ... often poetic.
