Sent an e-mail campaign out Thursday right before I left for agility. Didn't really think much about it all weekend except wondering idly how it did.

Got to work this morning to discover it got us a LARGE handful of sales and potentially saved the week.

Yay me!
And for this I will get... nothing.

I kind of made them up. I browsed a few recipes and chose the best elements of each one haha

Here's a rough guide for the soups.

Curried butternut squash soup
1/2 white onion, diced
4 cups chicken stock
1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed (1 inch)
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp curry powder
ground pepper and salt to taste

- melt butter in soup pot, add diced onions and cook until translucent
- add chicken stock and squash, liquid should barely cover the squash
- simmer until squash is cooked through
- purée with hand blender or tranfer to blender
- add curry powder and season to taste
- if you find it too thick, add more chicken stock

Broccoli cheddar soup
1 small-medium broccoli, chopped (stems included)
1/4 white oniom, diced
1/2 to 1 clove garlic, diced
3 cups chicken stock
1 cup (or more) cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp butter
1/2 cup flour
Salt and pepper to taste

- combine stock, broccoli, onion and garlic in soup pot, bring to boil and cook until broccoli is tender
- blend to desired smoothness, I like it a bit chunky
- in small sauce pan, melt butter and whisk in flour a bit at a time until you make a rue
- cook rue and slowly add milk until it becomes a thick paste
- add a bit of the paste at a time to the broccoli mixture until you reach your desired thickness
- add cheese
- season to taste

Smiley particularly enjoyed clean up as he got to be the prewash cycle for the pots

This morning I recevied an invitation to the AKC National Owner-Handled Series Finals! Then I got an email retracting the invitation, since it wasn't supposed to go out until the end of October >.> But Logan's in the top 10, so unless several dogs get lots of point in the next 2 days, he qualifies anyway.

I can't go, though, because it's too expensive. Airfare, car rental, hotel, entry fee, clothes, food... But at least he qualified!


Also, I now have over 500 lifetime volunteer hours at the zoo

Our youngest daughter Cadie was tested for the PACES program (gifted) at school. Today we found out she is in!

My dog has gained 2 lbs! That makes me feel like a dancing banana.
