Not a Creature Was Stirring …

At least so I hoped. NOT!

I thought Christmas eve shift would be relatively quiet, at least compared with the days leading up to Christmas eve. Not so. Between last-minute desperate shoppers and those wondering why we haven’t marked down prices for after Christmas yet, it was chaos. By the end of my shift, I temporarily lost my voice. All I wanted was soup.

Nearest place, Nordstrom’s Cafe. Their choice today. Tomato basil, which was full of heavy cream (not good for waistline or inside tummy). or Garden Vegetable Barley. Barley soup it is.

Came with a small slice of garlic crostini (okay, I have to research the subtle difference between crostini and bruschetta). The soup was okay. A little too “herby” for my taste. Did help the throat though.

Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas (or is it meowy Christmas, get back to you on that one). 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
