Normally, James hates eating soup for dinner. He says it's not a real meal. The only way I've gotten us to eat soup three times this week is because we are both fighting off a pretty nasty cold. The first soup I made was my Authentic Pittsburgh-Style Italian Wedding Soup, I put the recipe up on The Lofty Cook. I am so excited that I got to make this recipe, it tastes just like home. If you've never been to Pittsburgh, you probably don't know that Wedding soup is sort of a staple soup at every restaurant. It is almost always on the menu. Unfortunately, down here it is not. The only place that I have seen/had wedding soup is the Italian restaurant across the street from us called Dominic's and it is NOTHING like what I grew up with. Anyway, after this cold came I decided I would finally try my hand at making the wedding soup I know and love. The only problem is that Publix doesn't sell the right pasta! So, the recipe has the closest thing to Acini di Pepe that I could find.
Tonight, I am making Jenn G's famous Tortellini Soup!!! James and I are both pretty excited about that because it's so delicious.
I am also going to be attempting the infamous cake pops for the second time in celebration of Savannah's birthday. Let's hope my strategy pays off this time.
