Happy Friday to YOU!
I hope your weekend plans are shaping up to be excellent! Unfortunately, we are in, nursing a sick husband back to health. In between times of taking good care of my patient, this afternoon I ran out to Target for some necessities and came home with some additional goodies….I mean, afterall, it IS Target, right?! Tell me what you think about this place setting? I think it gives our breakfast table a nice touch of Autumn. 🙂 I still want to add some greenery to the napkins but it’s a good start.
Now, onto the Zuppa! I SO enjoy Zuppa each and every time I visit the Olive Garden and I wanted to see if I could replicate the Italian, hearty, goodness at home. This recipe did not disappoint!!!! This recipe will be a great one to make again very soon because of these lovely, cooler temps. Ahhhhh….I just love Fall.
I paired the soup with this Caprese Garlic Bread. Another WINNER in our recipe book. If you like the sweet, goodness of balsamic vinegar, you will love this bread as well. ❤
I’ll finish up this entry with a final thought—food for soul if you will: In my Bible reading today, I wrapped up the story of Esther. In her day, she became queen and was used as a vessel to save God’s people (the Jews) in a beautiful display of obedience. Even though she was most likely very afraid to take the leap of faith and unsure about the consequences of speaking up, she went ahead and did it anyway. God would have, and always will, get His plans accomplished. YOU might just be the one in the right position today.
Go ahead, be like Queen Esther and take that step of obedience and faith…because “Who knows, perhaps you have come to your royal position for such a time as this.” -Esther 4:14
Thanks for gathering,
