Wow, I woke up this morning to some serious rain. It’s absolutely pouring! The rain is supposed to continue all day….. I have to walk 20 minutes to get to work. Not so fun. I love rain when I have a day off and the only thing I have planned is watching movies and eating something like soup. Why couldn’t the rain have been here yesterday?? All I did yesterday was go to the gym, get a few groceries, make soup, and watch movies while the soup simmered away.
Yes, yesterday should have been a rainy day. It was the perfect cozy day. Andy’s got this horrible cold so he needs to rest. What kind of wife would I be if I didn’t join him?? Cozying up and watching movies, it was tough but I had to do it ;)
We watched Prince Valiant and Runaway Bride. Has anyone ever seen Prince Valiant? It’s a film starring Robert Wagner and Janet Leigh, made in 1954. I won’t really tell much about the movie except it’s based in Camelot and involves vikings, knights, and King Arthur. A couple nights ago we watched Camelot-so good!! Andy grew up watching these types of movies and loves them. If it wasn’t for him, I probably would never have seen them. I actually really like them! Camelot is definitley my favorite out of the two (it’s a musical, Prince Valiant is not).
I do need to bring attention to one thing about Prince Valiant. Robert Wagner’s hair…..
Isn’t it hilarious?? This picture doesn’t even do it justice. His hair is glistening and always perfectly set thoughout the whole movie. Love it!
Ooooh yes and I’ve got to tell you about the soup I made! Its Matzoh Ball Soup from Vegan with a Vengeance. I’d never in my life made anything with matzoh meal in it before. I’d never even tasted it before! This recipe was so easy to follow and so so tasty. Perfect for a sick husband.
The soup is made from homemade broth. I can’t believe how easy vegetable broth is to make. And the flavor is so amazing! I loved having the broth simmering away on the stove while we watched movies. The smell added to the cozyness of our day :)
The soup turned out perfect! I’m bringing leftovers to work….. not too sure how the Matzoh balls will reheat but we shall see. This is definitely something I’ll make again. The only requirement is time. Not too much of the cooking time is active. You just need to be in the house while the matzoh balls and broth are simmering. So if you’re ever having a lazy day around the house this soup is perfect!!
p.s. The recipe for those brownies I mentioned the other day needs some tweaking. I liked them at first but I know they aren’t at their full potential. Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to keep making and tasting brownies. What a life :)
