Super Bowl Sunday!

Delicious soup in a big bowl on Sunday. Is that not what that means?
Well I am embracing the fact that the husband is working so I got myself out of any Super Bowl obligations this year. Yay! I hope I don't sound unAmerican. I did listen to the halftime show while I cooked. And I read a few chapters of Lone Survivor this morning which has to earn me a few patriotic points (it counts in my husbands eyes at least). 

So this is what happened...
I woke up this morning to what I thought was our heater making crazy ass noises only to realize it was rain. RAIN!! Oh my old friend how I have missed you. Not just because we are having a scary draught in CA (but thank you rain for any dribble you will give us). Not just because my mom wants some rain to "dust everything off."
she needs to sort out her priorities gif 
 But because I LOVE the rain!  It makes me so happy. so I decided that I was going to allow myself to have a lazy rainy day (who knows how many of those there will be this year) and not feel guilty about not watching the game.
Muffin was excited for the rain too.

The soup was the first ham bone soup I had ever made. I found a good recipe from Damn Delicious and made a few changes as I went. I added some kale just because I wanted some green in it and I had some in the fridge.

For once I had formal Super Bowl plans this year! My cousin was doing a combination going-away party/Super Bowl party, so we went over for that and ate many foods. It was fun, but I can definitely see the appeal of having a lazy rainy day with lovely soup.
