It’s all about the berries

Good morning!  Hope your Wednesday is going great.  The sun is shining, it is going to be 92° today but the good part is, it is the last day of the 90s.  We have had over 90° for the last 3 days.  Starting tomorrow we are back into the 70s.  I cannot wait.

Breakfast this morning:

I used up the last of my frozen strawberries, mixed in some strawberry Chobani yogurt and topped it with Kashi Berry Blossom cereal.  This is the first time that I tried the Kashi Berry Blossom cereal.  I love this cereal.  This may be my new breakfast from now on.  It is so refreshing and I love berries so this is a perfect breakfast for me.

So last night hubby made supper.  The temp was

It was 94° at 5:54 p.m.  So what do you have for supper?  Something cold? Nope, we have:

soup, yep we had soup last night.  I guess why not, we have the air conditioning on, it’s quick and easy to make, so why not.  We had Italian Sub Soup with Garlic Toast Floaters.  This sdoup is really good.  This is what you need:


  • 2 T extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 pound sausage
  • 1/4 pound pepperoni, diced
  • 1 ham steak, diced (1/2 pound)
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, quartered & sliced
  • 1 28-oz can diced tomatoes
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup pasta


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 large garlic cloves
  • 5 cups crusty bread, cubed
  • 1 t red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 t dried oregano
  • 1/2 c parmesean cheese

Preheat a soup pot over medium high heat.  Add the extra-virgin olive oil and the sausage.  Brown and crumble the sausage, drain off excess fat and then add pepperoni and ham.  Cook for 2 minutes, then add the peppers and onions and cook 2 – 3 more minutes  Add the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.  Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil.  STir in the pasta and cook for 8 minutes.

While the pasta cooks, heat the 1/4 c extra-virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Add the bread cubes, toss, and toast the cubes for 5-6 minutes.  Season the toasty cubes with the red pepper flakes, oregano, and grated cheese.

To serve:  Put soup in a bowl and topped with bread cubes.

Off to do the work thang.

  1. I just wrote about how hot beverages or soup on a hot day actually keeps you cooler. If you drink something really cold, your body has to work harder to warm itself back up and you end up hotter. Weird, but seems to be true. The recipe looks delish. enjoy the 70’s. I love when the temps are in the 70’s.
