A Soupcon of Mary

My chapter one is done
I feel I should have fun!
My inclination is to be silly
Like having chocolate laced with chilli!


Bloggie friends! What better way to celebrate the news of the impending royal wedding than with a bowl of Bloody Mary Soup!

Roast plenty of tomatoes with herbs and crushed garlic drizzled in oil for ½ hour or so. Stir a bit (or a lot!!) of vodka and tobasco sauce! Enjoy this piping hot!

Charlie says: Mmm. My letter to next door didn’t get very far..



Have a wicked Wednesday everyone!

Bloody Mary Soup! That recipe sounds too tasty to ignore! I must make this recipe as soon as possible! You must have a hard time not finishing the batch in one sitting...sounds delicious!
I know...how exciting that the next royal wedding is on its way! Kate will be a lovely bride! How far do you live from the palace?
Thank you for all of your kind words in regards to my horrid car accident! Your uplifting commments meant so much to me! I imagine you as a very upbeat person because of your exclamation marks and happy tone and your words always make me smile! Thank you!

Hi there,
Yes, it's me Penny, modest internet star and totally lovable Jack Russell type dog.
Gary did not want to leave a comment in fear of spending time in the Tower of London and staring out at the ravens:-)
Speaking of post, Charlie, I always think the post is for me and I chew it up, sometimes. Gary, the guy who I allow to live with me, is not amused. Unless, it's a bill.
Pawsitive thoughts, Penny.

Chocolate laces with chili? Ummm .... how about laced with a bottle of vino. Or just a glass or two. Congrats! to you on the milestone.

Brian said...

WeeeeeeOooooo, that is some kind of soup. No sipping Charlie!

Ann Best said...

Chapter one done! Hooray and hooray!! Celebrate with anything that sends you soaring!!!

It certainly looks like Charlie's in a soaring/soring position.

Jen and I are about to retire, and she and I hope you have a delicious Wednesday. You are SO much fun to visit!

This sounds like my kind of soup!

A royal wedding in the works..it is so romantic! I love that William gave Kate his Mom's engagement ring.

Brigid said...

Well done on the chapter, enjoy your treat, isnt the engagement wonderful? It was a bit sad seeing Dianas sapphire ring again, lets hope they are blessed with a happy life.

fairyhedgehog said...

I've seen chocolate with chilli but I've never tried it. If you do, let us know what it's like.

Eliza said...

Mmm sounds very tasty :-)

Susan Fields said...

Enjoy that soup! Exciting news about the royal wedding. It's nice to have something positive going on in the world!

Simon Kewin said...

Congratulations - and the soup sounds lovely. Must admit I'm sick to death of the wedding stuff already though!

Kea said...

Congrats on completing chapter 1!

Bloody Mary soup? Any soup that has alcohol in it is worthy of trying. LOL.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Mum says she's never had "Bloody Mary" soup but if you've got a bowl to spare she'd like to try it.
Hi Charlie - it's nive to see you relaxing.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

The Monkeys said...

That sounds like a soup our Mom might like!

Ginger Jasper said...

Mmm now that soup sounds interesting indeed. Great news that you got the first chapter done.The news of the wedding is lovely and just what the country needs. Hugs GJ x

Marg said...

Wow, you are just living it up. Bloody Mary Soup sounds terrific. And chocolate laced with chili. Yikes. My stomach is already hurting. But congrats on getting your first chapter done. See I knew you could do it. Take care and keep writing. Oh and Hi Charlie.

Creepy Query Girl said...

Congrats on finishing! that recipe gave me an ulcer just reading it. Or maybe it was the chocolate laced with chili:)

Tara said...

My daughter would probably enjoy chili and cocolate. We once went to a spa together, which had a chocolate fountain and she dipped her Cheetos in it, along with the other goodies. Hmm.

She also eats tomato soup almost every day for an after-school snack. I hold the vodka since she's 8 ;)

Hart Johnson said...

LOVE IT! Why has it never occurred to me to put vodka in soup before? I adore a spicy bloody Mary, and this time of year, hot DOES sound better than cold!

Manzanita said...

OOOOhhh.... I've been craving tomato soup lately. Sounds delish. You Brits are so lucky to have royalty. I love some good Pomp!!!! I like that shot of Charlie.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

So exciting, this engagement! I suppose it was coming, right? Bloody Mary soup sounds DEEEEEEElicious.

Congrats on finishing that first chapter!

Jenny said...

Charlie is the cutest!

lupie said...

Bloody Mary Soup?
I thought Halloween is over? Heheheh..

We read about Prince William and Kate over in Malaysia too!

P:S: I still remember collecting photos, paper cuttings of Prince Charles & Diana's wedding ... :) Fairy tale to us then.
Prince meets girl ... fall in love, gets marry.

Congrats on chap. 1 being done!

Bloody Mary soup sounds like it'll really warm you up on a damp autumn day or night.

It's nice that the engagement is official!

Nice try, Charlie! :)

Vodka? No wonder you like that soup!

KarenMcG said...

Oh Charlie, you look like you're up there kinda high, looking down at the white spot.

Better rethink any sudden moves, though.

"The Boys" were glad you came by to say "hi" today. Billy especially likes that you know the value of the lap!

Deborah said...

Bloody Mary Soup...OMC, I have never heard of such a thing!
I'm very excited for the wedding. I loved Princess Diana and I'm hoping for my invite..hehehehehe
