Soup, Sandwich, Snuggles

Agenda for today:

– Play and constantly use the bathroom for 2 hours

– Take a walk outside to the mailbox

– Eat lunch and treats as fast as you can

– Snuggle



Maggie was out this morning! I snuggled with her for an hour, but she slept in this spot for about 2-3 hours this morning.


I guess all those trips outside tired her out :)

We’ve eaten lunch, gone to the bathroom outside a few times, and I walked her down to the mailbox since she’s learning to be on a lead.

She did okay, but the dogs in a neighbor’s fenced-in yard freaked her out a bit. They bark all the time, so I don’t blame her.

Right before our short walk, I fed her lunch in her kennel and made me a quick + comforting meal.


I had some Campbell’s boxed veggie soup that I won in a contest, so I heated up a box (which is 2 1-cup servings) along with about 1/2 cup of the leftover soup from last night’s dinner.

The soup was pretty good! It was a blended veggie soup, as compared to the normal chunky veggie soups, so that was a nice change.

I added some crushed red pepper + garlic + salt on the top and had the soup along with a grilled provolone sandwich on Nature’s Pride whole wheat.


Grilled cheese using olive oil on the bread + in the pan = awesome. I just used my Misto to spray the pan and the bread a little instead of getting out the butter. I love the flavor of the oil on the bread, and it still gets crispy!


And I had to have a little dessert.

  • 2 pieces of my Mammaw’s homemade fudge
  • 2 chocolate covered pretzels that we made
  • a VT chocolate that my sister made us for Christmas :)


My head is feeling a little better – the headache isn’t completely gone, but at least my head isn’t throbbing like it was this morning.


Favorite soup + sandwich combo? Or type of fudge? 



  1. Any type of fudge will do. :-) As for soup and sandwiches, gotta go with the classic grilled cheese and tomato soup. So warm and comforting!

  2. Maggie is so snuggly! I want to wrap up in my snuggie and snuggle with her!

    Ok that was excessive use of the word snug and it’s various forms.

  3. cant go wrong with a grilled cheese and tomato! i love how tuckered out puppies get. so cute.

  4. Glad your head is feeling better! Fudge is my weakness. There is toffee topped fudge still at the office that I’m having a hard time avoiding!

  5. I like grilled cheese and black bean soup :)

  6. I love tomato soup and grilled cheese — so unoriginal, but yummy nonetheless!

    I love the fact that “snuggie-ing made it on your list of things to do today. You’re a riot, girl!

  7. Have I told you how wonderful that little ray of sunshine is?!?!! Soooo cute!

    Favorite soup & sammy – hands down grilled cheese and tomato – but gourmet versions of both are the best!

  8. I’m not much of a soup person but I <3 pb banana sandwiches

  9. that is such a smart idea to add olive oil! i never would have thought of that!
    delicious bread – i agree :)

  10. I loveee broc and chedder with any Panera sammie :) I am in love.

  11. I had penuchi for the first time this christmas and loved it.

    I love grilled cheese with good cheese and roasted red pepper soup.

  12. Tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich . White bread with really old white cheddar Mmm.

    I love me some fudge too. Anything chocolatey with nuts.


  13. OMG she is absolutely adorable! :) I don’t know if I ever commented on your new little love yet. :)

    Hope you are having tons of fun with her. I know it can be stressful but hang in there because they are worth every little accident, cry and ounce of mischief. :) The love that they offer outweighs this all.

    Hope you feel better soon hun. (I just read about the migraines from this morning). Hope you got some rest today. :)

  14. Aw Maggie :)

    Glad your head is feeling better, I’m so sorry about the migraine!

    I think Amy’s Chunky Tomato Bisque paired with a grilled provolone (yay) sandwich is a great combo. But I also love veggie soups too, so it’s a tie.

  15. Maggie is too cute…I want a puppy!!

    Hope you feel better!

  16. I love minestrone soup with a veggie pannini!

  17. Maggie is sooo cute and she definatly looks cuddly :)

    I am not really big on fudge but chocolate covered pretzels sound good, I like the salty sweet combo.

  18. OMG! That is one of the cutest puppy pictures I have seen yet. Those paws! I am not even suppose to say that, I am a “cat lady!”
