Did you eat a lot of candy last night on Halloween? We took my daughter, Olivia, for the first time "trick or treating" last night. She had a ball with her friends. I'm sure she was confused as to why we kept going to different houses and knocking on doors, but by the 5th house, she was opening up her bag for the candy, haha!
As I mentioned in a previous post, her costume I made was a mini Audrey Hepburn from "Breakfast At Tiffany's". A friend of mine saw it on Pinterest here and gave me the idea. I made 2 parts to it...the original black dress as in here....
My little Audrey.....
Then, to make it more of an actual little girl costume, inspired by the one on Pinterest, I made a separate poof skirt that is removable. It was a BIG pain in the you know what though, because my sewing machine couldn't handle all the fabric and net material, so I had to sew the whole skirt by hand! I was not happy about it. Oh well, an excuse to buy a fancier machine one day. 🙂 I wanted the pieces separate, so this way, she can wear the little black dress still on separate occasions. She did NOT want to take this dress off. She loved it!
I like to go all out...it's fun for me....so I made the dress, necklace and I even got the black sunglasses and crown like Audrey wore in the movie, but forgot to bring the sunglasses. Darn.
Anyways, if you ate a little too much candy, then today you can get back on track with this hearty, healthy soup. It is packed full of protein and nutrition and tastes amazing, with just 6 ingredients! Don't let the short ingredient list fool you, it tastes divine!
As part of my commitment to my daughter and to my readers with children, I created this delicious soup as a way to get a whole bunch of healthy peas and onions into your little ones. But please don't be mistaken...I enjoyed this probably the most. This is NOT just for kids, it is absolutely delicious and reminded my husband of a gourmet soup that you'd order in a restaurant. It just so happens to have the kid-friendly stamp of approval, as my daughter loves it.
The combination of the sweet peas and red onion is amazingly complimented by the smokiness and warmth from cumin spice. It lingers in the back of your throat and is so comforting.
So, did you dress up for Halloween or eat too much candy??
