"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." ~ Carl Rogers

NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes...and love getting recipes you would like to share!

This last week is a blur... super busy week, wrote three purchase agreements in two days... hoping to have a relaxing day today. Our little girls are growing up... is it really February already???

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Winter seems to be soup season and I made this week's recipe because broccoli cheese soup happens to be our daughter's favorite...

BROCCOLI CHEESE SOUP

  • 1 medium onion, diced
