First of all, for those of you who were wondering: Steve had his final mega dose of chemo today. His blood cell counts were finally back up and as of about 20 minutes ago, he was still feeling pretty good. He has his kids on Tuesdays and didn't want to break that routine, so I let him take the last of my Tomato Basil soup (gasp) so he didn't have to cook tonight...that way he only has to make some grilled cheese and dinner/school lunches are ready. Don't cry for me though, I made my favorite Pasta Salad last night - which you should make right now if you haven't made it already - and I'm making homemade chicken noodle soup tonight (it is soup week, after all). I know, I'm a cooking fool. It's just that when Steve is sick I feel helpless and cooking is about the only thing that makes me feel useful. Plus - the steroids that he is on for the first few days make him ravenous. It's the least I can do. So - I have the chicken stock cooking on the stove and Marisa is going to come over and have a glass of wine and eat leftovers with me!
Second (or tenth...who is keeping track?), I wanted to post a picture of my pot of tomato basil soup just to get your saliva running. Here you go:

It kinda looks gross, doesn't it? I hope I'm not having the opposite effect on you, because it is actually really, really good. 
Third, can you guys open the links that I put on here to recipes from different websites? Could you please try and let me know? If it doesn't work then I can try to fix it (HA!) or I can post the entire recipe. If you leave a comment after a post I get an email so I can be alerted to the situation immediately or whatever. Have a marvelous night (or day, depending on when you are reading this)!
