drizzly Saturday

I woke to a beautifully cool and cloudy morning today. 


Pulled out my recipe for the Pioneer Woman's Chicken Tortilla Soup and got busy dicing and chopping.


Nothing like sitting inside on a drizzly autumn day, stack of magazines by my side and a bowl of hot soup to keep me company.

How was your Saturday?

xo, Patty

  1. Patty, you make me want to cook some chicken tortilla soup. My day was busy, my dh and I bought 20 books for $27 at a sale to benefit the public library, then I exercised at the health club.

  2. Hey there, I made chicken soup today also and just posted about it.
    Chicken tortilla soup sounds good and I bet it made your house smell good.
    Our first rain is expected tomorrow evening with promises of snow in the high elevations. We'll see. It's always a pleasure to read what you're up to. Take care and enjoy your drizzly day.

  3. The soup sounds delicious, Patty. I'm doing a clear-out of my closet in my tiny foyer. It's surprising what one finds!

  4. I have got to go out and get a chicken, or at least some parts, and make myself a pot of soup! Today it was in the 70's again, but it can drop down low any time. xo

  5. We had a gorgeous sunny day here in Oklahoma, started out cool then warmed up. I love autumn Saturdays whether they're cloudy or sunny, always puts me in the mood to bake & relax.

  7. I've got the fixings for tomato and carrot soup here. We had gorgeous weather in New York City and I spent the afternoon enjoying being outdoors. Grocery, post office, bank and cleaner. Felt so good to get lots of things done. Tonight I'm enjoying blog visits and some magazines to catch up on.

  8. Mom has made that soup before, and it's delicious!! When I read your post a little earlier this evening, it gave me the craving for soup, as well! It's a cold and cloudy day here, too. So by the hubby's suggestion, I whipped together some tomato soup to satify our cravings and soothe the soul:) Our family just left after a wonderful stay, and it's always hard to say goodbye. It's been a good day!
    Blessings,

  9. I love Chicken Tortilla soup - perfect for a cool fall day! I went to two library book sales today, two loads of laundry, a little housework, finished painting a shelf for my kitchen, raked leaves, and relaxed on the couch while looking through some cookbooks. :-)

  15. Hi Patty,

    SOUP DU JOUR (soup of the day)is definitely CHICKEN, which I also made yesterday (Saturday)as my daughter woke up with a sore throat and achy ears. I totally agree with you; nothing like a stack of your favourite magazines, a pot of soup simmering on the stove and the pitter patter of raindrops on the window pane!

    Have a cozy weekend!

  21. I love rainy days, Patty. They give us an excuse to slow down, enjoy the moment. The soup sounds terrific. That and a nice nap would make me very happy! :)
