Soup's On

Well the poor hub is down with the muck. We had a fabulous time last night, but by the time we made it home, the intestinal bug hit him. Ew. I'm feeling achy--don't know if it's psychological (probably), but I'm not taking my chances. I went grocery shopping just in case so if I get hit, we're ok to hunker down for the weekend. Chicken noodle soup is on the stove and is smelling mighty fine right about now. My recipe is here, if you remember. This is without fur, so far. Let's hope it stays that way! (Bev almost crawled into the pot one time I made it!)

Like I said, the show was so much fun. The seats were amazing, considering we purchased the last four! I've decided I prefer sitting up in the balcony pews. You can see the entire stage. Brian brought Duane Eddy onstage after his encore. Look here for a short clip of them doing a rendition of Peter Gun. Whenever you see a show in Nashville, you just never know who's going to pop up on stage. It's always a joy to get a nice surprise. The BSO was great, but Brian was in his element. He did some of his Stray Cat classics including Stray Cat Strut (which ran into Mr. Grench song--fun!), Sexy and 17, Fishnet Stockings and Rock this Town. I was boppin', oh yea. Brian did a couple of his singles like Jump an' Wail which were rockin' too. The orchestra was great and the Christmas classics they performed had that rockabilly twist to them which was refreshing to hear about now. The band that opened was a lot of fun. It was a local band called Hillybilly Casino. They rocked the house too and really set the tone for Brian. All in all, it was a fun night out, to say the least. Whenever I go to a show, I wonder why I don't get out more. I love live music. I need to step out of my "box" a little more often, I thinks.

This is our dessert for tonight. I bought it yesterday at The Puffy Muffin. Yum. Perhaps, I'll start with this and end with soup, whatchya think?

That dessert looks scrumpious. I clicked on the picture and immediately thought, "oh please, please, please, I don't want to read that she made this". You see, I can barely make a cookie even using pre-formed frozen cookie dough. LOL

I'll take BOTH! Hope hubby gets well soon and that you are spared the bug.

I would start with dessert myself but that soup sure does look good.

Glad to hear that you all had a nice time!
I hope that the hub is feeling better and that you have stayed healthy. It's a wonder that the hub isn't sick more often with all of the changing of time zones that he does. I don't know how he does it! The youngest Mr. Staggs has been sick this week too. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't catch the "bug"...or at least get everything caught up before I do!

Beth said...

Oh now that looked like a fun concert! How cool! And yes you should get out on the town more. When another good show comes out and if hub is out of town,,lets go to one,,that would be so much fun!
