suzy homemaker, meet betty crocker

A few weekends ago I had an urge to make red velvet cupcakes from scratch with cream cheese icing. Oh. My. Gosh. they were yummy, and surprisingly easy to make! I was inspired by watching a marathon of DC cupcakes on TLC. This was Friday night.

Fast forward to Saturday morning and Betty crocker has a sick husband. I am not talking cold and flu sick, I am talking in the bathroom every 5 minutes sick!

***Let me just take a moment to note it wasn't from my cooking. On Monday at work Scott found out half his shop was sick from the bbq they had the past Thursday! So I can keep my cooking badge, I didn't cause the hubs to spend all of Saturday dealing with death. ***

He could not keep anything down for about 8 hours.

I decided this would be a perfect time to try my hand at homemade chicken noodle soup. I spent about 4 hours making the soup and being Suzy homemaker, scrubbing the floors, cleaning the living and dining room and doing laundry.

I have to say, minus Scott being sick on Saturday that weekend was very mellow and relaxing. Baking and cooking can really bring you to a very calming state of mind.

The soup was so much better then canned, and if you put a little hot sauce in it, it is out of this world!

***this was also my first time taking a part a full chicken, pretty intense***
