Sunday, Errr, Monday, We Soup!

I missed my Sunday soup post yesterday because of the Super Bowl (Boo, Patriots) but put down your pitchforks, I have not abandoned ye'! I'm souping tonight and you are all invited!

 
Now if the name hasn't alerted you, you are going to want to like avocados for this one.
 
 
 
Behold! Thy bounty of avocados! And cilantro, green onions, and limes. BUT most importantly, AVOCADOS.
 
 
Slab of skinless chicken breast. Don't worry no nipple, FCC should let me be.
 
 
My shredded up chicken always brings the paws to the yard.
 
 
There's not a lot to this soup, but it makes it easier to make :)
 
 
Toppings. $2 tortilla chips, I run a classy joint.
 
 
Finished product. This said it made about 6 servings. I'm calling shenanigans on that. I'd say 2 to a very orphanage 4. I've also never met a serving size that could respect my hunger, NEITHER HERE NOR THERE. 
If you laugh in the face of serving sizes like moi, I'd say you could get away two avocados, unless you have avocado running through your bloodstream. My bowl was packed. This was super good, buy the extra lime for extra lime-y topping, makes it taste even better. This would also be a wonderful summer soup, if you're into that sort of thing, which you totally should be. 
 
Don't be shy, show me your soups!

A Huddle of Pirates and ... Sunday Soup.

A "Huddle of Pirates"???

 

Yeah, I should explain that. Probably. Of course, if you'd rather keep that mental image, feel free to skip the next paragraph. 

 

This weekend was the first in a while where I had the time and energy to make plans with friends and do something fun, so I met up with friends for coffees and last night went to the see the local ice hockey team get beat. They deserved it. I'm not their biggest fan, but the other team were just better. Also, the other team has a better name and it includes the word Pirates. No way would I root for another team! :D

 

So, from our seats right behind one of the goals, we saw them huddle. It was fun. The friend I went with plays ice hockey and she was able to explain things to me. I'm sure she explained the same things to me last year, but I have no memory for the rules. Also, I wanted every opportunity I could get to suggest that the start of the game should be called the "puck off". It's a much better name. I think it will catch on. At least, I will make every effort to promote the term "puck off" as the new legit hockey phrase.

 

 

I'm sure others have thought of it before me, but anyway.

 

In other news, today is Sunday and I have made soup. I apologise for the distinct lack of Sunday Soup posts, but I just haven't felt inspired to experiment with cooking much - and in my case cooking is pretty much experimenting. What I said about memorising rules pretty much also applies to following recipes - it's just such an alien concept to me. (Or my mom. Or, come to think of it, my gran.)

 

After several simple veg and pasta combinations, I wanted to make something different. My first attempt didn't quite turn out, or turn into anything tasty really, so I didn't count it as a Sunday Soup endeavour. Never mind.

Then a couple of weeks ago, I came across a great vegan food blog that featured a soup I haven't had in years - solyanka.

It's a Russian soup with a nice balance of sweet and sour. It's usually using left-over veg and meat,  lemon, and a dollop of sour cream. The recipe I found is vegan (recipe here) but I changed it slightly to add some white cabbage, veggie "meat" chunks, and greek-style yogurt instead of the sunflower sour cream.

 

And this is what it looked like:

 

 

It was delicious.

 

Happy Sunday, All!

Book Review: 500 Kisses by Anyta Sunday
500 Kisses - Anyta Sunday

Free story from the M/M Romance group's yearly event.

At about 55 pages, this is a friends-to-enemies-to-lovers story about two young men who were once best friends with a possibility for more but got derailed because one of them got scared of what he was feeling and became a man-whore.

Some years later, and possibly a little wiser, they acknowledge each other's existence, but that's about it.

Enter a bet.

This was at once a fun romp and a sweet romance, with two men learning that love isn't quite as complicated as they thought.

Well done.

500 Kisses
500 Kisses - Anyta Sunday

First off...I love kisses.

 

 

“Five hundred kisses are all it takes.”

“Takes to what?” Dylan said, stealing into the conversation with a quizzical look, his elbows on the table and a piece of half-eaten toast pinched between his fingers.

“To steal someone’s heart. Anyone’s heart."

 

Take two competitive men and give them a bet. Make these men former friends who are currently on the outs and what happens?  Sparks fly, of course.  Wow, these two had undeniable chemistry. Both teases and willing to do whatever to prove their point. This was just adorable!  Add to that a heartwarming back story and a camp setting and I'm smitten for sure. 

 

Oh and did I forget the kisses...

 

One, two, three...

 

 

four, five, six...

 

 

seven, eight, nine...

 

  

ten, eleven, ninety-nine...

 

 

Gaaaah I could go on and on...I think you get the point. 

 

 

These two are just adorable...

 

 

and sexy...

 

 

 

**Highly Recommended**

Review: "500 Kisses" by Anyta Sunday
500 Kisses - Anyta Sunday

"What they were doing didn’t mean anything. He barely tolerated the guy. And the kisses were . . . Really, okay, yes, they were good. But that was only because Chris was such an expert. He could make Big Bird rock a kiss. It had nothing to do with Dylan.

Hell no."

 

Since I'm a big Anyta Sunday fanboy, it comes as no surprise that I absolutely adored this super cute feel-good novella. "Second chances" stories, or better yet, "best-childhood-friends-turned-enemies-turn-back-to-lovers" stories are totally my jam.

 

There were two things that stood out for me:

 

1. The summer camp setting surprised me. I wasn't expecting that and I LOVED it. A lake, a cabin in the woods, a campfire - I mean, could there be a more romantic setting?

 

2. I was a little confused in the beginning why Chris and Dylan hated each other that much. But their background story has been revealed partially as the main story unfolded and it was incredibly well-written and touching. Well played, Anyta!

 

 

Ok, so let me repeat myself one more time, for the cheap seats in the back:

 

- Anyta Sunday is AWESOME!

- "ex-best-friends-turned-enemies-turn-to-lovers" stories are the BEST

- there's no such thing as too many scorching hot man-on-man kisses in a story (you can quote me on that)
