Wow! Lani celebrated her 2nd birthday on 6th October, and we threw her a super fun circus themed party on the 7th. My parents were in town visiting from Arizona for the past three weeks to help up celebrate, so I've been too busy to even blink. They left Monday morning though so I thought I would, at the very least, share these photos from Lani's celebration. I've got so many others to share from their trip here, but this will have to do for now. We all had such a wonderful time.

I followed this recipe on Post Punk Kitchen pretty closely to make this delicious soup, and I definitely plan to make it again. Plus there's still left overs in my fridge, so that's always a bonus!
all the lovely veg chopped up and ready to go. Or in the case of the garlic, ready to be annihilated in my garlic press. Sitting on a really unattractive plastic plate, because it's large. And in charge...
a mostly out of focus, completely staged shot of me stirring the onions and celery. I don't often cook with celery, which is a shame because it tastes awesome.
Buibbling away after adding the vegetable broth. 10 minutes really was the magic number for me, as the veg was cooked to perfection, not too soft that it falls apart but not under cooked and crunchy.
Viola! I really should think about things like wiping the outside of the bowl clean where I dribbled the soup pouring it before I take a photo, eh? ;)
