Savory Tomato Soup and Mustard Puffs

NOTE:  I'd planned to post this January 4, 2012.  It's still frigid around here but Adam has been back to the west coast for two weeks.  

I have cookbooks.  Lots and lots and lots of cookbooks.  They follow me home from bookstores.  They arrive in my mailbox.  They hop into that big paper fill-it-to-the-top bag at library book sales.  Shelved neatly or stacked on flat surfaces, they are everywhere.  I search them, read them and cook from them.  Thanks to my excellent foodie blogging friends, my computer Bookmarks section is now sagging with saved recipes.

Yesterday's frigid temperature called for soup.  Our son, Adam, was still here and working from his childhood bedroom.  I jumped at the chance to prepare him a hot lunch.  Serving an old favorite of vegetable soup and a PBJ sandwich crossed my mind.  However, two recipes I'd been wanting to try called out to me.  I had all the ingredients on hand for the soup and had pre-done the Mustard Savory Puffs and frozen them.

Adam enjoyed his lunch and asked about the puffs.  I told him to check out my blog when he got back to the west coast--I'm always soliciting "visitors"!

These delicious recipes came from two three of my favorite food bloggers.
