First up - Horseshoe Art
Scrapbook paper has come a long way. I found this velvety leopard print at Michael's during a 5 sheets for $1.00 sale.
I grabbed a 12 x12 canvas, and a horseshoe I had already spray painted gold.
Then all I did was rub 'n buff the edges gold and glue the paper down.
Then I glued the horseshoe on top and it was done! I love me a quickie! #getyourmindoutathegutter
Speaking of quickies, let's move on to #2 - The Easiest Tastiest Pumpkin Soup
Seriously, this soup is sooooo gooooood!
Start with a jar of this.
God Bless Trader Joe's for finally coming to Lexington!
Empty the entire jar into a pot and heat over medium heat. Then add 3 Tbs. of light sour cream and half a cup of half and half. (The recipe on the jar calls for 3 Tbs. of fat free sour cream, but I prefer light. And I added the half and half to make it creamier. For anyone that is dairy free, maybe you could try using coconut milk?)
Top with applewood smoked bacon and asiago cheese and let your taste buds thank me later. The combination of the salty bacon with the sweet pumpkin is flavor perfection - in my opinion! And the fact that it takes less than 20 minutes to make isn't half bad either. ;)
Sorry for the phone pics. I wasn't planning to blog about this soup, but after I made it the other night I just had to share it with you all! Go get you some pumpkin butter right now!
