I have been battling a really bad virus. I went home sick and I been basically in bed since then. So I have been living on broth and soup. I hate being sick. Trust me, I will be glad when the cold and flu season is over. I think I am at more of a risk because I am drawing blood on all these sick people. Trust me only 1/3 of people actually cover their mouths when they cough and sneeze.
I did make a nice Hot Toddy, a Pomegranate Lemon Honey Hot Toddy. It really helps with congestion. Plus just makes you feel better. I actually have the recipe published. Where? On my YouTube channel. This one those recipes I am only publishing on that channel. So sign up to subscribe to it so you can see those recipes.
Well, I have made Seduction in the Kitchen AMP. What does that mean? Well, it this new thing with Google for faster loading mobile pages. For a change, I am one the first to make this changeover. Usually, I am one the last to make for most changes.
Like most things in the beginning stages, there are a few hiccups. One is I can’t seem to get the AMP pages to show the videos. Another is the style is pretty basic, not customized. It is being worked on. Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Yes, you know me I am always about changes. I am playing with Pinterest. Namely the image in the posts for you to save on Pinterest. I’m trying out a new collage image. This Bacon Mac n Cheese Soup the first to have it. So we will see if this new collage pin does better on Pinterest than just a long pin that I have been doing.
Bacon Mac n Cheese Soup
There is a place to eat here in the Cleveland area called Zoup! Every day they have about 6-8 soups. The soups change every day there. They are really good. One of my favorites there is a mac n cheese soup. It is like traditional mac n cheese but in soup form.
I gave my recipe that I had to a friend. The hardest part of it is that the soup is remembering it is a soup. So it should not be real thick like mac n cheese. My friend kept forgetting that.
Actually, it was he who added the bacon to the soup. Which I think makes it even better. It is that smokey taste of bacon that brings out the cheese flavoring if you ask me.
