Today: Maggie took a two hour nap in the morning. I did stuff for CC and got rid of a stack of papers while she slept. When she woke up we had green bean and rice cereal delight for lunch. She wouldn't eat so I let her feed herself. Then I gave her a bath.

We ran some errands to the post office and the grocery store. I spent 2x as much at the post office - I'm being good about using up stuff in the cupboards. Also stopped by Jamba Juice. The power-suited guy in front of me spent forever trying to decide which boosts he wanted... then tried to pay with a $100 bill! I had no idea you could be so picky, by the way. They have a special key for "light banana". Came home. Maggie is asleep again.

[Comments] (5) Apple-Cheddar Soup: I made this earlier today and it is so yummy. I think I put too many potatoes, because it was kind of chunky.

1/2 c. finely chopped onion
1 T. butter
2 med. potatoes, diced
2 c. apple cider
1 t. fresh thyme
1/2 t. salt
dash cayenne pepper
1 med apple, peeled, coarsely chopped
1/2 c. milk
2 T. flour
4 oz (1 cup) shredded cheese
fresh apple slices

Cook onion in butter. Stir in potatoes, cider and seasonings. Boil. Simmer covered 15 minutes. Add apple. Simmer 5 minutes until potatoes are tender. combine milk and flour - stir into soup. Cook and stir until bubbly. Whisk in cheese until melted. Top serving dishes with apple slices and fresh ground pepper.
