A soup, Rome holiday and the baking loot from Sis



Thankyou for all the Birthday wishes you send to my daughter's 18th b'day in my earlier post.
We had a wonderful time in Rome Celebrating her b'day.
For the week we were there, we have been fully busy, we left our hotel after breakfast and was only back by midnight as we wanted to see as much as possible in these days.
And every evening we three had a relaxing dinner in one of the pleanty cozy places they have there with good food and wine.


Just sharing couple of pictures with you all.



Remember me telling you all hubby is gone to US last month for 10 days. He went to my sister's place and this I really have to share with you all, especially my baking friends, the goddies I got from my sis. Hubby went with one suitcase and he came back with 2 suitcase.
Sis had send me so much things from there :-)


I think I have muffin cups for atleast 5 years :-)




One of the sweetest presenthubby have ever give me :-)
Now to the soup. I have posted this soup earlier, but as I have not been cooking or baking anything special I thought I will post thie Asperagus soup again as it was the season here and I made them again.
If you ant to check out the recipe hopp over to this post.



Baking goodies etc.... which I got from Sis.

Dear HC, first I saw this asparagus soup and thought, I have read this post before. So before I commented, I made sure I wasn't commenting twice :)

Now I see the soup is a worthy repeat! Rome holiday looks wonderful and I hope you have lots of fun with all the goodies you got from your sister :)
