Sunday Night Supper

Sunday afternoons I try to cook things for the week. I made pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip muffins (recipe below) and soup. Tonight it’s extra chilly and a perfect soup night.

Sunday Night Soup

When the temperature dips thirty degrees I start thinking about soup. One of my favorite dishes is Seafood Curry at Disney’s Animal Kingdom restaurant Yak & Yeti. I thought I’d try a soup version using Salmon and ingredients I had on hand so I didn’t have to run to the store. This soup is so…
