Soup for Cookies

As I have mentioned earlier, I am one of the few people who has actually been cooking less than normal due to being under house arrest.  My friend Priscilla said the same thing.  I made soup; she made cookies.  We did a soup exchange.  It was a win/win – soup for cookies.  Since visiting with friends and family is not allowed at the moment, Priscilla had the cookies nicely wrapped up, sitting on a chair waiting for me.  When I arrived at her house, I swapped the cookies for some soup.  We got to wave to each other through the window.  Sadly, that was the extent of our visit though.  We can’t wait for things to get back to normal.


Priscilla wrapped the cookies up so nicely, with a bright green bow.  She always adds these special touches that make even the little things seem so extraordinary.  I was NOT thinking like that.  Larry put her soup in a plastic container.  It was not dressed up or fancy, and when I placed it on the chair, it was wrapped in a plastic bag.  HMMMM!  Seems like I am slipping up here.


The cookies inside the box were just as pretty as the packaging outside the box.  My box of cookies was filled with some beautiful spring-like Italian cookies, handmade with love by Priscilla.  And OMG!  So delicious too.


But it was a good exchange, even though mine was more practical and certainly not as  pretty.  Priscilla called today to tell me how much she loved my split pea soup.  So it all worked out just fine.  I got some delicious cookies and Priscilla got some delicious soup.  We are both happy.  🙂


Stay safe and stay well Everyone.  “Til next time.
