Today’s Soup & Stories entry comes from fellow CatholicMom.com contributor Kelly Wahlquist. She shares a recipe for gazpacho, a soup I have never tried until today. It’s a winner, and I’m looking forward to sipping on this one tonight. Kelly, take it away …
Today’s Soup & Stories entry is from our dear friend Kara Storey who provided the inspiration for the series. Kara walks down memory lane and recalls the time she brought her husband-to-be home for the first time when dinner with her parents didn’t go exactly as planned. Kara also shares her recipe for Taco Soup.
Today I kick off the Soup & Stories series with a recipe for Creamy Roasted Mushroom Soup, a dish one friend recently described as “transcendent.” Not sure about that, but it does get rave reviews wherever it goes.

Sister Maria Assumpta walked up to the board and put up a basic compass shape. Rather than north, south, east, and west, she replaced them with Work, Rest, Play, and Pray. Very simply, she told us, “Your lives should always live in a balance with these four things.
Welcome to my new series, “Pray, Work, Rest & Play,” where I share a bit about how we’re striving to incorporate an order, a “rule” of sorts, to our daily routine here at Das Schmidt Haus. A routine that organically involves prayer, work, rest, and play.
My friend Dorian came up with an awesome link-up idea called “Pinisher” — a movement to get Pinterest-slackers like me to actually finish something I’ve pinned. How many of you have actually baked, crafted, decorated, repurposed, reused, bought, planned, played, etc. anything you’ve pinned? Really … all of you?! Well kudos and more power to you because this meme pretty much sums up my success with Pinterest.
