Tonight's Dinner was Brought to You by My MOM!

I hate cutting onions...HH doesn't like doing it, but will for me if the recipe calls for it (I often use onion powder instead).  My mom cut seven onions for this soup!

Vidalia Onion Soup with Wild Rice (Smitten Kitchen)
My dad loves vidalia onions, and I promised him I would make this recipe for him.  I wasn't able to do it while I was visiting, so tonight I made good on the promise.  HH said he was going to fake it that he liked the soup, because he is not an onion person, but he really enjoyed it.  Both HH and my dad went back for seconds.

Tie-Dyed Cupcakes
(Made for the kids at the daycare!)  I forgot to take a final product you get a before the oven one.

Lemonade Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting (Pearls, Handcuffs, and Happy Hour)
HH and my parents are going with me to drop this off for a friend's mother.  It is her birthday in July and I'll be gone.

How I was Greeted at the Airport:

Lunny is a nickname HH has for me, and I told him I probably wouldn't be up for a hug, but a good tap would be nice.

Books I'm Reading

(This author gets ME.....there is so much I relate to.  After reading her Cold Tangerines book, I was eager to soak myself in Bittersweet.  I can't wait for her third book release in the fall.)

Nerdy work book, but very interesting.  :)

Photo Session 2

There will be five posts total on this!  I am just so happy about the results of our photo session!
