Caught a Bug and AMAZING Soup!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It is my day to share a project over at the Exploring Cricut blog.  Here is what I have today:



This cute little project was inspired by some cute jar projects made by some of my bloggy friends.  HERE is Janis' project, HERE is Susan's and HERE is Miss Mary's card, which started it all.  

The jar and branch are from Doodlecharms.  I manipulated it on my Gypsy Girl, so that it was fatter that it was intended to be - I wanted it to fit my lady bug.  She is from Create a Critter 2.  I stamped her cute little face with Peachy Keen's Princess Faces - I LOVE that set!!  The cardstock is all from Michael's and the patterned paper is from K and Co.  The twine is from Doodlebug Designs.  I did some doodling with my Sakura Jelly Roll pens.  I decided to use one of Mary's cute stamps from Cardz TV.  You can get your own "Going Buggy" HERE.




I want to show you an amazing soup, that would be PERFECT to send to a friend who "caught a bug" along with my cutie card.  One day on Pinterest, I found THIS recipe for Italian Wedding Soup created by Everyday Maven.  It is a low fat, Weight Watcher's friendly recipe, and it is AMAZING!!  It is chalk full of veans and veggies - including kale, which I had never had before - the meatballs are flavorful and the broth is divine!  I topped it with some grated parmesan, which you can see in the second picture.  Doesn't it look yummy? 


I did as "Everyday Maven" suggested and doubled the meatball recipe, I popped them in the freezer and last week, made another batch of this AMAZING soup.  I think it was even better than the first time I made it!   I am never having Italian Wedding Soup from a restaurant again!!





I hope you make this soup and visit Everyday Maven - give her some love - You will not be disappointed!!  Don't forget that every day, each one of the Exploring Cricut designers has a Cricut creation to share with you.  We hope to inspire you to explore your Cricut cartridges and have lots of fun doing it!!  Be sure to pop by the blog everyday and be prepared to be amazed!
